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)

    "I love Harry Bosch books."

    this is an excellent book that goes with the Hieronymus Bosch series iBooks. Michael Connelly is an excellent Arthur.

    "Classic Bosch!"

    The Hong Kong scenes were so descriptive that I could smell the food, see the smoke and feel the humidity.

    "Another good one!"

    I am happy that Len Cariou returned to narrate this excellent book. Len and Harry Bosch go together and should not be separated. A good solid 4.5 stars. Not Connelly's best but pretty darn good. I hope he continues to ask Mr. Cariou to narrate future Bosch novels.

    "Disappointing"

    I hate it when books just end! What started as an exciting read ended so abruptly that I wondered if I had missed a part. Did Connelly need some quick money. Shame on him!

    "Harry Bosh Angst"

    Harry gets in touch with his feminine side and wants the blame for his whiny exwife's demise (and everything else). Pretty lame.

    "Connely at his best"

    I've read pretty much every book he's written over the last 15 years. I've always found him an easy read, fun mystery fiction. Not on the level of Mankel, or Rankin. Until now. This is a very suspenseful book that also is quite touching and horrific in places. Very intense. I honestly think its his best book. The voice talent does a great job. If you like Connely, you cant go wrong with this one.

    "Gripping from the start!"

    Michael Connelly does it again! Hooked me from the beginning and kept a nice pace throughout the book.

    "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.
