Just Okay

Though an interesting story, the author's attempt at politically correcting the character of Charlie Chan has left him with a dry, boring personality. Besides, since the 1970's when this work was written, some of it is still politically incorrect. Mr. Collins should have left the famous detective to be himself and continued with the tradition of Earl Derr Biggers' original inspector from Honolulu.

Excellent novelette. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Michael Collins resurrection of an old and most favored character.
