Harry Bosch is assigned a homicide call in South L.A. that takes him to Fortune Liquors, where the Chinese owner has been shot to death behind the counter in an apparent robbery.
Joined by members of the department's Asian Crime Unit, Bosch relentlessly investigates the killing and soon identifies a suspect, a Los Angeles member of a Hong Kong triad. But before Harry can close in, he gets the word that his young daughter Maddie, who lives in Hong Kong with her mother, is missing.
Bosch drops everything to journey across the Pacific to find his daughter. Could her disappearance and the case be connected? With the stakes of the investigation so high and so personal, Bosch is up against the clock in a new city, where nothing is at it seems.
A south L.A. liquor-store murder investigation gets personal for Michael Connelly's popular hero Harry Bosch in 9 DRAGONS. It feels like Bosch has known John Li, the owner of Fortune Liquor, forever. His murder seems at first like a senseless killing, but quickly proves more complicated, as Bosch and his team uncover connections to a local member of a Hong Kong mafia crew. So when word reaches Bosch that his daughter--who lives in Hong Kong with her mother--is missing, he doesn't miss a beat getting across the globe. He journeys deep into this unknown city, stopping at nothing to bring her to safety.
