Choice of Partners in Crime bookclub. Fairly typical detective solving a murder; however, this is set in Shanghai, China. You become immersed in the politics and lifestyle, which I found fascinating. It could have easily been half the length (464 pages). I found myself bored at times, just wanting to get to the end. My favorite aspect was the preparation and eating of the food mentioned throughout the book!
