When I came across 9 Dragons by Michael Connelly, I could not resist it as I have enjoyed previous stories written by this writer. I settled in for a riveting novel featuring one of Connelly’s beloved characters, Harry Bosch.
9 Dragons features Detective Harry Bosch who is involved in solving the murder of the owner of Fortune Liquors, a small store in tough south L.A. Harry is familiar with the liquor store as it was there he once picked up a matchbook with the motto Happy is the man who finds refuge in himself inscribed on it. With the help of another detective, Bosch uncovers a link between the death of the store owner and a lethal crime ring. His world explodes when his own daughter is taken from him. With the stakes so high, Bosch needs to travel to a place known as Nine Dragons and risk everything in order to find his daughter.
Connelly has mastered the art of creating a riveting pace. The novel is filled with non-stop action that leaves the reader breathless. Not all the action in the novel ends in a positive note – which makes the story even more realistic. This novel did not disappoint me, and I know that I will choose to read another by this author. This story is perfect for a reader who enjoys fast-paced detective stories.
I gave this novel ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 stars on Goodreads.
