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.

“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Another Michael Connolly book that is an excellent listen. All Harry Bosch fans will love this book. Very sad in some places and thrilling in others.
Absolutely - some Harry Bosch stories can be a little slow. This tale was fast paced, loved the changes in scenery and the new characters. If you liked Taken I have a feeling you will like this book.
Racing through HK to find his daughter
Great work, the narrator told the story in such a way you that you were able to be absorbed into the story!
absolutely - I won't mention in case of spoiling the story but book definitely left me thinking
This is not a normal Harry Bosch title, even if you have tried one of these before & didn't love it - give Connelly another try with this book!
Over the past year I've been listening to all the Harry Bosch series - starting with the first one. I've enjoyed them all, but his one has been the best so far in my opinion.
All the other Bosch series of course, but also similar to the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy I think. I listened to TGWTDT as audio books and loved them, then went on a search for more audio books but never really found something that grabbed me the way they did. Then I found Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series and really got into it.
I didn't see the twist coming in this one. Usually I can predict the twist but this one caught me off guard.
My 13 year old son listened to this one with me while we were driving and he loved it too.
I found this book to be a typical "ugly American tourist" story - going to a country where they have no idea of the culture and being obnoxious. A real shame as I have enjoyed all the other Bosch books that I have listened to.
This one has really put me off ...
I was not a huge fan of the narrator, his voice was so 'rough' and 'scratchy' and way he read did not hold my attention even though the story was interesting.
Give the book a 4/5 but the narration 2/5.
