Character. Michael Connelly’s fourteenth Harry Bosch novel is titled, Nine Dragons, and is set both in L.A. and Hong Kong. The pacing of this thriller engaged me from the beginning to the end. Harry Bosch is a complex character who works diligently and cares deeply for family. In Nine Dragons, those two elements converge as he works a homicide in L.A. that leads him to rush to Hong Kong to find his daughter who has been abducted. While both plot and character development are finely developed in this novel, the dialogue is often sketchy, and a lot of momentum takes the form of narrative. Fans of Bosch will enjoy this latest installment, and new readers can start here as easily as anyplace and come to enjoy reading exciting stories about an interesting character.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
