Book Description :

After what seems like a routine murder investigation, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch finds himself in Hong Kong facing the highest-stakes case of his life: bringing his kidnapped daughter home. Fortune Liquors is a small shop in a tough South L.A. neighborhood, a store Bosch has known for years. The murder of John Li, the store's owner, hits Bosch hard, and he promises Li's family that he'll find the killer. The world Bosch steps into next is unknown territory. He brings in a detective from the Asian Gang Unit for help with translation -- not just of languages but also of the cultural norms and expectations that guided Li's life. He uncovers a link to a Hong Kong triad, a lethal and far-reaching crime ring that follows many immigrants to their new lives in the U.S. And instantly his world explodes. The one good thing in Bosch's life, the person he holds most dear, is taken from him and Bosch travels to Hong Kong in an all-or-nothing bid to regain what he's lost. In a place known as Nine Dragons, as the city's Hungry Ghosts festival burns around him, Bosch puts aside everything he knows and risks everything he has in a desperate bid to outmatch the triad's ferocity. Featuring ebook bonus materials including an in-depth interview with the author about writing "Nine Dragons," photos from his exciting travels while writing the book, and a link to an online promotional video.!--EndFragment--

Book Description :

With unique illustrations based on classical Chinese painting, this multicultural children's story tells a classic folktale that children will love. Long ago, in a far-off land, two tribes shared a common legend — they believed the mountains between them were the home of nine terrible and terrifying dragons. For generations, fear of the dragons kept the two tribes apart, until a catastrophic drought forced them into the mountains in search of food. Nine Dragons tells the story of how the two tribes prepared to go to war over their dwindling resources, and how the oldest and wisest of the nine dragons convinced the others that they had to stop the battle before it started. Based on themes from Asian folklore, and taking place in a mythical Asian setting, Nine Dragons is an inspirational tale about overcoming mistrust and misunderstanding to achieve peace. The vibrant full-color illustrations, along with the timeless story, will appeal to children and their parents.

Book Description :

The River of Nine Dragons (Song Cuu Long) is the name given to the nine "tails" or distributaries of the Mekong River that flow through the thick, verdant, watery world of the Mekong Delta in Southern Vietnam and Cambodia. The first of these to break away from the Mekong is the Bassac, starting in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh and making up one of the star of four converging waterways upon which Phnom Penh sits. Jack Logan, a naïve country boy from North Carolina, joins the Army with his cousin Joseph and becomes a U.S. Army Ranger. The Vietnam War is about to change his life forever. Like so many warriors of the past, he has learned to love the effects of war, the adrenaline rush, and the heat of battle. He rediscovered a love that he thought he lost along the way, while discovering a new love in the process. Now he's torn between the love of war and the love for two women. Who will he choose, the War, Rana or Maya?

Book Description :

Most accounts of contemporary Vietnam take the retrospective approach: veterans or correspondents return for the first time since the war and compare what they see today with memories of combat tours. They dwell on their own past history, telling us little of this ancient country and its people today. The objective of this book, however, is to take a much different look at Vietnam, to examine the nation more as a modern entity than as a chapter of American military history, to provide a vehicle for mutual understanding. What, indeed, is Vietnam today, this nation of roughly seventy million people, most of them ethnic Viets, but with a significant number of hilltribe minorities, among them the Black Thai, White Thai, Meo, Muong, and Hmong of the Northern Highlands? As the many photographs in this book so beautifully show, this small country covers an incredibly diverse landscape, ranging from tropical beaches and mangrove swamps to picture-postcard rice paddies and impenetrable rainforest. With one of Asia's least developed economies - yet with a historic architecture that rivals any in the East - Vietnam today is once again under intense foreign scrutiny, by entrepreneurs from Japan, Europe, and, lately, America. A nation of contradictions, Vietnam is a Communist state with a government under rising pressure to reform both its economic and basic human rights policy. In chapters organized geographically, beginning in Hanoi, working south toward Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), and ending in the Mekong Delta, the author and the photographer explore the country through firsthand encounters with Vietnamese of every sort, showing Vietnam in a 1990s context - the culture, the geography, the resources, the landscapes, and the people. They provide a perfect introduction for the traveler to a country now experiencing a resurgence of tourist and business interest.

It's the year 1906. Rumours abound that a deadly plot is hatching - not in the fog-ridden back-alleys of London's Limehouse district or the sinister Devon moors of the Hound of the Baskervilles but in faraway Peking. Holmes's task - discover whether such a plot exists and if so, foil it. But are the assassins targeting the young and progressive Ch'ing Emperor or his imperious aunt, the fearsome Empress Dowager Cixi? The murder of either could spark a civil war. The fate of China and the interests of Britain's vast Empire in the Orient could be at stake. Holmes and Watson take up the mission with their customary confidence – until they find they are no longer in the familiar landscapes of Edwardian England. Instead, they tumble into the Alice In Wonderland world of the Forbidden City.

Book Description :

Tony Tebbutt's creative storytelling in his breakthrough book, is a mélange of his wild and mischievous real-life experiences flavored with a dash of fiction, that takes you on a roller-coaster ride of the unique way of life that was Hong Kong in the '50s and '60s. He recounts a truly amazing litany of teenage experiences that would be foreign to most not having the opportunity to enjoy the appetizing delights of the British Colony bordering China. We get a look at how it felt to be a local born of mixed heritage passing back and forth between Oriental and Occidental cultures during a great period in the Colony's history. We are told of life as a student in a multi-cultural high school called KGV. Tebbutt opens up his inner-self to expose his emotions, joy and personal frailties as he recounts his life lessons with personal achievement, education, women and moral values. Through it all he is able to find humor in his faults and share the exuberance of his successes. An easy read and an absolute must if you enjoy good stories, coming of age or have a connection to old Hong Kong.

Book Description :

Set in 1920s Hong Kong, Nine Dragons is a hard-boiled detective fiction with a twist: an inquisition into colonialism, racism, assimilation, and the clash of cultures. It's the classic mystery/detective genre overlaid with the topical issue of identity - a struggle that any person of colour faces in any society that privileges whiteness. It starts with murder: a wealthy, white woman is found dead. Nigel Dunston-Smith runs the cop shop in Kowloon, and he needs a detective with clout - a fellow white guy, that is - to oversee this high-profile case; his finest detective, Tommy Lam, just won't do. So he partners newbie Sean Heaney with Lam and sends them to Nine Dragons, the most popular nightclub in town, to get some answers from the Fung family. Though they own and frequent the inner-city club, the Fungs live in the wealthiest neighbourhood around - the Peak - where most of the affluent residents are European or British. At first, Lam takes all the guff he gets from the colonials around him. But it doesn't last: caught between his sense of justice and his experience within an unjust system, Lam rages and turns the tables in the second act by joining forces with the Fungs. The final unravelling is, in the words of one theatre critic, "suitably serpentine." True to noir, someone's hiding something, everyone's a double-crosser, the light is always dim and shadowy, and it'salways a good time for a few fingers of Scotch. Roaring Kowloon is the perfect setting for this cross-cultural thriller: it's the Hong Kong district that was, at that time, considered dangerously exotic with its dark narrow streets, opium dens, seedy bars, and sex workers. And Nine Dragons is enhanced with video projection, fight scenes, and a dramatic musical score, all to cinematic effect. Cast of [TK].

Book Description :

THE OVERLOOK sees Harry Bosch plunged into the dangerous world of international terrorism. When a physicist is murdered in LA it seems the killer has no fear of publicity, leaving the body on The Mulholland overlook, a site with a stunning view over the city. And when it's discovered that the victim turned over a quantity of a lethal chemical to his killer before he died, Harry knows he has more than just a single death to worry about. Alongside the forces of Homeland Security, Harry realizes he must solve the murder or face unimaginable consequences. In NINE DRAGONS, the shooting of a Chinese liquor store owner in LA brings Harry Bosch back to the Rodney King riots and the moment a stranger gave a young cop sanctuary. Now, the debt must be repaid, and Harry soon discovers the old man's death was no ordinary holdup. Homing in on clues disregarded by the cops on the scene, Harry builds a picture of corruption and intimidation, with the local Triads at the heart of it. But as he tries to build a case and breach the impenetrable wall of silence in the local community, he finds he is taking a dragon by the tail - a dragon whose talons reach well beyond LA, and even the States. Suddenly the most precious thing in Harry's life is under threat, and he will need to leave the familiarity of his home turf, alone and without backup, if he is going to stop his worst nightmare from happening. Harry Bosch is facing the end of the line in THE DROP. He's been put on the Deferred Retirement Option Plan - and given three years before his retirement is enforced. Seeing the end of the mission coming, he's anxious for cases. He doesn't have to wait long. First a cold case gets a DNA hit for a rape and murder which points the finger at a 29-year-old convicted rapist who was only eight at the time of the murder. Then a city councilman's son is found dead - fallen or pushed from a hotel window - and he insists on Bosch taking the case despite the two men's history of enmity. The cases are unrelated but they twist around each other like the double helix of a DNA strand. One leads to the discovery of a killer operating in the city for as many as three decades; the other to a deep political conspiracy that reached back into the dark history of the police department.
