• Great Holiday Reads – Nine Dragons by Michael Connelly

    Date: 2010.10.04 | Category: Book reviews, Holiday reading | Tags: ,,,

    For all the Michael Connelly fans, this latest book sees the return of the very familiar figure of detective Harry Bosch.  Harry is an LA Detective that is a little rough around the edges and is relentless in his pursuit of criminals.

    In this latest instalment, Bosch investigates a murder of a store owner in a tough neighbourhood of LA. He has extra motivation on this occasion because he knows the victim as he once helped Harry out in a time of need.  The investigation takes Harry in to the seedy underworld of Chinese Triad gangs in LA and a chase to catch the suspect before he flees to Hong Kong.  The story takes a major twist when Harry’s daughter, who lives with his estranged wife in Hong Kong goes missing and a devastating message arrives on his mobile.  Harry heads to Hong Kong as the action picks up even more pace and his rampage around Hong Kong is almost Jack Reacher’esque

    The story continues to twist and turn to the thrilling climax. A thoroughly enjoyable read and a perfect holiday page turner.  In fact I read this in 7 days when I was supposed to be working – just didn’t want to put it down!
