Un uomo gira per diversi bordelli, va a letto con diverse donne, se così possiamo dire,e tutto per trovare qualcosa che alla fine gli viene dato senza alcuna fatica. I cattivi che dovrebbero ucciderlo a causa delle sue ricerche, e che sono la mafia cinese niente di meno, lo spaventano un pò ma non gli fanno nulla. Francamente è un libro insensato e noioso nonchè maschilista e ora so perchè anche il film che ne è stato tratto fu un flop.

The title may be unfamiliar but the book was made into the rather insipid movie Shanghai Suprise.

The film is a lightweight.

The book itself is dark, sometimes violent, sometimes funny (Kenrick has a fine dry turn of phrase) and catches a good feel of pre-war Shanghai.
