9 Dragons

9 Dragons by Michael Connelly.

Hardcover: 384 pages
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company;(October 13, 2009)
ISBN-10: 0316166316

Amazon Review:

After what seems like a routine murder investigation, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch finds himself in Hong Kong facing the highest-stakes case of his life: bringing his kidnapped daughter home. 

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.

Well it seems like this is a totally Michael Connelly/ Bosch book month!  I guess you could say I am enjoying Bosch... much as Monk!

This series on Detective Bosch always takes place in California/ LA area.. but for once half of the book took place in Hong Kong!  In Hong Kong he meets up with his x wife and a man named Sun Yee, a one time very bad guy turned very good guy. (I liked him! lol)

So far I haven't found a Bosch book that I haven't enjoyed.. so add it to your list if you haven't read it and are a Bosch fan!
