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)

    "Don't waste your money."

    Been a long time fan of H. Bosch but this story is just preposterous. Very wooden writing and the worst narration I've encountered. Very disappointing.

    "Gripping storyline."

    kept me on the edge of my seat. Contained some unexpected twists that added to the interest. Well worthwhile! I've loved all the Harry Bosch books and have loved seeing him grow as a character.

    "Action Packed"

    I really like Michael Connelly's work. This is not his best work but, still worth the read. I prefer his stuff when based here in America.

    "classic bosch"

    What can I say. great twisty story, grabs you from line one and keeps it coming. The only thing that could have made it better for me would be Dick Hill, but that's a personal preference. Len does a great job.

    "Best Bosch in a long time"

    This was a terrific listen. As a long-time Harry Bosch fan, I think the best plots are those in which Harry has a personal, emotional stake, as he does here. There are a fair number of coincidences and dubious plot devices that allow Harry to keep going, but they are easy to overlook as the story carries you along. And for my money, the grizzled, slightly stiff narration of Len Cariou makes for the best Bosch. To me, he really sounds like Harry would.

    "Bosch Reader"

    The book was good, but not up to the usual standard. The action was good, but somehow lacking the usual intesity of the other books of this character. Still worth reading, just not Connelly's best effort.

    "Nine Dragaons"

    This book was up to Michael Connelly's usual excellent quality and seems to open a new chapter for Harry. I was very disappointed in the narration. The narrators voice was harsh and unpleasant to listen to and his attempts to imitate womens voices, childrens voices and asian accents were just laughable. A great story but you might prefer reading this from the printed page.
