NINE DRAGONS - Michael Connelly
A 'Harry Bosch' story and its a poor one, which is unusual because Connelly really is the business in this genre. The problem for me was that the story is just too far fetched or probably our hero's actions are too ludicrous even for a fictional detective.
It starts off with a murder in L.A and then to Hong Kong for 24 hours where his daughter is kidnapped and then back to L.A where the murder is solved .
It would be a major plot spoiler if anymore was said about this tale, suffice to say that its sillier than it sounds.
Michael Connelly is productive and generally excellent, especially the 'Bosch' books but this doesn't have much to redeem it at all.4/10
