Publisher Description

Harry Bosch is alone, without backup - and this time the case is personal. From the No. 1 bestselling author of The Lincoln Lawyer.

The shooting of a Chinese liquor store owner in LA brings Harry Bosch back to the Rodney King riots and the moment a stranger gave a young cop sanctuary. Now the debt must be repaid, and Harry soon discovers the old man's death was no ordinary hold-up.

Homing in on clues disregarded by the cops on the scene, Harry builds a picture of corruption and intimidation, with the local triads at the heart of it. But as he tries to build a case and breach the impenetrable wall of silence in the local community, he finds he is taking a dragon by the tail - a dragon whose talons reach well beyond LA, and even the States.

Suddenly the most precious thing in Harry's life is under threat, and he will need to leave the familiarity of his home turf, alone and without backup, if he is going to stop his worst nightmare from happening.

Nine Dragons

Another winner from the most readable of thriller writers - centred around some familiar characters all strung together by another enthralling storyline. A nice tee up for The Reversal...

Excellent book

The book is well paced and a good thriller. The Hong Kong setting and twists in the plot makes it a good read.

Not his best

Not his best work, but still enjoyable. The later part of the book feels rushed, in particular the last chapter. However there is enough to enjoy and make reader look forward to the next one.
