So I may be biased on my review, my professor wrote this book. But I do really think it was a great book and I was really excited to see it was on this website. I just finished it the other week. It was a great story. I honestly did not know much about the Triads or Chinese history before I read it, and while the story is fiction, it is still based on real events which made it that much more interesting.
