Description

The shooting of a Chinese liquor store owner in LA brings Harry Bosch back to the Rodney King riots and the moment a stranger gave a young cop sanctuary. Now the debt must be repaid, and Harry soon discovers the old man's death was no ordinary holdup.

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.

Brilliant

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.

The Best Yet

Where does Nine Dragons rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

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.

What other book might you compare Nine Dragons to and why?

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.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I didn't see the twist coming in this one. Usually I can predict the twist but this one caught me off guard.

Any additional comments?

My 13 year old son listened to this one with me while we were driving and he loved it too.

Trilling Story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

Racing through HK to find his daughter

Have you listened to any of Len Cariou’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Great work, the narrator told the story in such a way you that you were able to be absorbed into the story!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

absolutely - I won't mention in case of spoiling the story but book definitely left me thinking

Any additional comments?

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!

Very disappointing

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 ...

Narration kills it

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.

Spannend aber überkonstruiert

In dem Buch geht es um den Tod eines chinesischen Ladeninhabers, der Entführung von Boschs Tochter, um chinesische Triaden und einen Harry Bosch, der in China geradezu zum Massenmörder wird.

Man kann hier schwer eine Rezension schreiben, in der man nicht das Ende vorweg nimmt. Aber vielleicht soviel. Es gibt in dem Buch zwei völlig unabhängige Handlungsstränge, die nicht übermäßig glücklich miteinender verwoben sind. Um nicht zu sagen unglaubwürdig miteinander verwoben sind.

Das Buch unterhält trotzdem gut. Es ist eine Empfehlung.

Schade..

dass das leider das schlechteste Buch/ Hörbuch ist, das ich bisher von diesem Autor gelesen/gehört habe. Der Plot ist ist konfus und wirkt an manchen Stellen "an den Haaren herbeigezogen". Der Bosch in dieser Erzählung hat meines Erachtens nichts mit dem Harry Bosch der vorhergehenden Titel gemeinsam: Unüberlegt, sogar fahrig, unprofessionell. Kein Vergleich zu "Echo Park" oder "The Narrows". Ganz zu schweigen von "The Lincoln Lawyer", meinem Favoriten von Connelly. Im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen Titeln von Michael Connelly, die ich kenne, kann ich dieses Werk nicht empfehlen.
