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 holdup.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.

Good stuff

Another typically first class thriller from Michael Connelly.

That said, I dont think it's quite as good as his previous Harry Bosch books. The story is set in large part in Hong Kong and whilst you always have to suspend belief a little to enjoy this type of book, the location makes the plot bordering implausible as hinted at by a previous reviewer!

But dont let this put you off - I thoroughly enjoyed the book, notwithstanding, would give it five stars and recommend it - particularly if you are a fan of the author already

Not up to scratch

Really enjoyed a new crime writer for me - Michael Connelly - in listening to Black Ice and The Last Coyote. Good intricate plot and especially well read and voiced by Dick Hill.

Nine Dragons had for me to many sentences starting "He..." and the overall story was spoilt by the readers voice and characterisations - Michael Brandon.
The story line itself moved along well but the above criticisms took the edge off.
