We may not brush our hair, change out of our pajamas, or sit down at the dining table, but we always make time to read.

Nine Dragons - Michael Connelly (Harry Bosch #15)
Sometimes I can't believe how much of my life I've spent reading Michael Connelly novels...but I do really enjoy them - just like I enjoy watching episodes of Law & Order over and over and over again. In this one, Bosch goes international when an Asian convenience store owner is shot and it appears gang related. Somehow, his daughter - who lives in Hong Kong with his gambling ex-wife Eleanor Wish - is brought into the fold seemingly as ransom, and Bosch jets off in search of her and the convenience store killer. This book was filled with some missteps and seemingly avoidable tragic consequences (as many of these Bosch novels are), but despite my frustration (as always) with those aspects, it was a fast and thrilling ride.
