Author, Logan Lo, gave me a courtesy copy of this novel for my review.

In a world where circumstances can dictate the course your life will follow, does it mean we can't decide to change its direction? If it weren't for evil, would we know what being 'good' means? In this life, you must have balance. And who knows better about order than an organized gang. When a child is young, for some, they don't sit down and decide, "Hey, when I grow up, I want to be a gang member in organized crime." Sometim

From my Amazon review:

I enjoy Logan's writing on his blog, but this book is a whole different animal. It's a gritty read about New York City's Chinatown in the 90s.

I've read some other reviews that say this book is profanity laden - true, but it's realistic; if anything I'd expect more swearing in conversations with gangsters.

Not quite sure what to make of this little book. I downloaded it for free (Thanks Logan!) and read it on my smartphone. That probably altered my experience of it. Anyhow, I did read it pretty fast as I wanted to know what happened to the characters... although I can't say that I could relate to any of them on a personal level. They just did not seem like real people. Seems more like a movie than a novel in that regard.

Don't know why people always write about themselves in third person - "Logan is a native New Yorker and lives with his wife and a plant named Harold." Yet they do.

The truth is that I actually am a native New Yorker and I do live with my wife and a plant named Harold. And professionally, I'm an intellectual property attorney and a commercial real estate appraiser.

But there's this saying that we are
