Harry Bosch is assigned a homicide call in South L.A. that takes him to Fortune Liquors, where the Chinese owner has been shot to death behind the counter in an apparent robbery.
Joined by members of the department's Asian Crime Unit, Bosch relentlessly investigates the killing and soon identifies a suspect, a Los Angeles member of a Hong Kong triad. But before Harry can close in, he gets the word that his young daughter Maddie, who lives in Hong Kong with her mother, is missing.
Bosch drops everything to journey across the Pacific to find his daughter. Could her disappearance and the case be connected? With the stakes of the investigation so high and so personal, Bosch is up against the clock in a new city, where nothing is at it seems.

Reviews

Bestseller Connelly nimbly balances Harry Bosch's personal and professional lives, both of which take a substantial beating, in his 14th novel to feature the LAPD homicide detective. Bosch, last seen with his recently discovered half-brother, lawyer Mickey Haller, in The Brass Verdict (2008), investigates the shooting death of a liquor store owner. While the murder has none of the hallmarks of a regular gang hit, Bosch discovers the dead man was paying a weekly protection fee to a man Bosch suspects is part of a Chinese triad. Even though Bosch is warned to drop the case, he doesn't take the threat seriously until he receives a video showing his 13-year-old daughter, Madeline, being kidnapped in Hong Kong, where she lives with her mother and Bosch's ex-wife, a former FBI agent. Bosch flies to Hong Kong to try to rescue Madeline, prepared to face down one of the world's most powerful crime syndicates. Tenacious as ever, Bosch is even more formidable in his role as a protective father. 10-city author tour. (Oct. 13) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

LAPD Detective Harry Bosch returns to solve the murder of an owner of a liquor store in Connelly's latest. Evidence leads to a suspect with ties to a powerful Asian gang. Undaunted by this dangerous connection, Bosch apprehends the perpetrator but then hears that his daughter, who is living in Hong Kong with his ex-wife, has been kidnapped. Without the help of his fellow officers, Bosch travels to Hong Kong to rescue his little girl. There he realizes he's running of out time if he's going to save her before his suspect gets released in L.A. Verdict Connelly (The Closers) unveils his most personal Bosch story yet with this fish-out-of-water story. The pages fly, and although the last chapter feels a bit rushed, it doesn't distract from another Connelly masterpiece. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/09; ten-city author tour.]-Jeff Ayers, Seattle P.L.
