The only reason I gave this book 2 stars and not 1 is because it is entertaining at time both in terms of action and how many stereotypes it can fit on a page. I'm amazed that this book was published without being thoroughly edited--there are so many things wrong with it, from clunky sentences to hyphens for em-dashes.
On the other hand, it is a good example of what not to do for anyone who wants to be an editor.

A strange mixture of elements that lead to an intriguing but not great thriller. Finally, there wasn't enough about the villains to have it as entirely satisfactory read which was a pity because there were a number of very different ones.

This is a police detective novel with a lot of info about present Chinese culture. It has a lot of social comment woven into the story and made me aware of the brutality of life in present-day China.

I love his books. About the Chinese culture and how they sell their blood to Canadians (the West) and eventually contract AIDS in little villages. Wonderful, informative, great read.

This is my 2nd book by this authour. Just like the 1st one, tis pretty hard to really get into his writing style. I could not understand his wee diversions into skateboarding, game shows etc
