review 1: Inspector Chen's character gets deeper in this book. Chen has the ability to step up to the edge of the abyss, look around briefly, step back and use what he observed to solve whatever crime he's working on. In this book he is on vacation at a resort reserved for very high commun...

review 1: I love this detective series. This gives such an introspective perspective on modern life in China. But, the most intriguing thing about these books, is the mouth watering descriptions of the food! Between that and the variety of teas, I am ready to book a trip. Also, the inspec...

language
English

review 1: I'm surprised this book doesn't get better reviews. It's much more than a detective novel but I wonder if its dominant grounding in the detective genre is clouding the view of reviewers. As a detective novel, it works well but doesn't stand out; as a highly engaging exploration o...

review 1: At first I had a time getting into the story but when Chief Inspector Chen of the Shanghai Police Department stared to investigate the case I couldn't put it down, and in the end - no I didn't guess who was the culprit. I love how he searches out each lead even when it means tra...
