I read this mystery because it was based in Hong Kong and I wanted to get an idea of what it was like there. It didn't give much sense of place, so I wouldn't recommend it for that. As a mystery, it was okay. Started out with a van full of people committing suicide on an empty highway and the mystery is trying to figure out why.
