Nine Dragons - by Michael Connelly

This is a novel in the Harry Bosch series (#15), although his half-brother, Mickey Haller, also makes a minor appearance and reporter Jack McEvoy is mentioned.  In this novel, a murder case in South Los Angeles becomes personal and Bosch must go to Hong Kong to try to rescue his daughter.

I previously read "The Drop" and "The Fifth Witness," so this novel filled in a little of Harry Bosch's more recent background that I had already glimpsed in these sequels.  Harry is a no-nonsense detective.  In this book (as in others), he shows that while he may make some mistakes, he is a take-charge guy, who trusts his instincts and is comfortable being in control of his destiny.  In this book, he races against time to find clues and follow the evidence, but all is not always what it seems.  I like Connelly's writing and this story did not disappoint me.
