For many years Detective Harry Bosch has known Fortune Liquors, a small store in tough south L.A. A matchbook he once picked up there had a motto -- Happy is the man who finds refuge in himself -- that guided him through some of his darkest days. Now the store's owner has been murdered. With the help of another detective, Bosch uncovers a link between the death and a lethal, far-reaching crime ring. And instantly his world explodes. His own daughter, the person he holds most dear, is taken from him. With the stakes so high and so personal, the desperate Bosch must travel to a place known as Nine Dragons and risk everything to reclaim what belongs to him.
