Publisher's Summary

LAPD Detective Harry Bosch is off the chain in the fastest, fiercest, and highest-stakes case of his life.

Fortune Liquors is a small shop in a tough South L.A. neighborhood, a store Bosch has known for years. The murder of John Li, the store's owner, hits Bosch hard, and he promises Li's family that he'll find the killer.

The world Bosch steps into next is unknown territory. He brings in a detective from the Asian Gang Unit for help with translation--not just of languages but also of the cultural norms and expectations that guided Li's life. He uncovers a link to a Hong Kong triad, a lethal and far-reaching crime ring that follows many immigrants to their new lives in the U.S.

And instantly his world explodes. The one good thing in Bosch's life, the person he holds most dear, is taken from him, and Bosch travels to Hong Kong in an all-or-nothing bid to regain what he's lost. In a place known as Nine Dragons, as the city's Hungry Ghosts festival burns around him, Bosch puts aside everything he knows and risks everything he has in a desperate bid to outmatch the triad's ferocity.

Impressed? Ace detective Harry Bosch is also on the case in other exciting Michael Connelly crime-fiction novels.

We're thrilled to announce that our premier Audible Live event on Facebook will be a chat with best-selling author Michael Connelly. On November 3 at 7pm (ET), you'll be able to ask him questions about Nine Dragons, Harry Bosch, his favorite audiobooks, and more! RSVP Today

What the Critics Say

"Terrific....Connelly never stops doling out the suspense as action leads to counteraction....His thriller is an addictive read that, once it grabs you in those first few pages, won't let go of you....High-grade entertainment." (Boston Globe)

    "hated it"

    This is the worst HB Michael Connelly has ever written. Its very boring, racist, predictable and totally without any redeeming value. I wish I could get my money back. I'd love to spend it on a really good audible book. dk

    "IS THAT HARRY?"

    This audible book was as entertaining as it was preposterous. Harry outwitting Hong Kong in a day? I think not, even with his triad toughened, eyeball-missing sidekick along for the ride. The book was not the problem for me in this case. It was the narrator. Len Cariou doesn't cut is as Harry. Not broody enough, even wimpy, and he sould not attempt to sound female.
    He made Harry sound NORMAL, and that is just WRONG!

    "Good Story, Bad Narration"

    Mr. Cariou has narrated many Harry Bosch books but at the start of this book he was boring. Since I love the character I stuck with it and the narration was better. I also didn't like the voice he put with Ignacio. The story was very good and opened up a new culture for me. I cannot recommend this book to people unless they are fans of Harry Bosch.

    Not a writer, a writer wannabe, editor, lit maj, or pretend literary critic. Just an avid reader/listener. My ratings are opinion only.

    "Not Harry at his best."

    In my opinion, a very poor Bosch outing; Harry came out looking his worst. I love Harry, warts and all, but this was just not up to standard.

    "Ordinary at best"

    Connelly is just going through the motions here. I think he wrote this one while concentrating on something else. Barely held my interest. Not bad enough to stop listening but I was happy to hear it end.

    "Ruined by narrator"

    I should have known better than to purchase a book with this narrator. He uses the same intonation for almost every sentence, which makes the dialogue sound very unnatural. The narration spoiled the audio experience for me.

    "Narrator is VERY Poor"

    The narrator in the audiobook almost made me stop listening to it. He sounded like he had a mouth full of mush. The book itself was OK but really not up to Michael Connelly's standard.

    "Not the best"

    I swear that Bosch gets more stupid as he gets older. The early books were good but this was disappointing.

    "Could be Connelly's best Bosch novel ever"

    I've listened to a number of Bosch novels. This one is tops. Len Cariou started off a bit weak in narration, but found his stride soon.

    "Bosch vs. the Chinese cartel"

    I love Harry Bosch, and have read every book. This one is a nice departure, as it involves the Chinese gangs, and part of it takes place in Hing Kong. Nobody writes crime like Connelly, and this book is no exception. Highly recommend.
