Start your review of A Matter of Justice (Hong Kong Nights, #3)
There are a few authors and/or series I feel are under rated and this is one of them. I would love to see more people pick up this one up. (don't start here though, start with book #1 A Matter of Duty )

This is the third book in the series and picks up pretty much right after book two ends. The Dragons are close to an all out war with a rival gang and the tensions are mounting. Conroy is in a club one night when he witnesses a murder that puts him right in the cross hairs. This leads to him needi
Lisa The Novel Approach
The conflict between Conroy Wong and Allen Hong still looms heavily. Conroy and Allen have a history; they were both Dragons and are former lovers who had good intentions but different views on where they would fit best in protecting the people of the Eastern District. After the war and the fall of the Nine Stars, Conroy stayed loyal to the Dragons, and Allen decided to join the Hong Kong PD. The criticism he received from the leader of the Dragons, Wei Tseng, also led Allen to form his own thou ...more

Just Gets Better

The third in the series is just as fascinating and intense as the other two. This time it is about Conroy , his relationship with Allen and their past. It also deals with the possibility of war between the Dragons and the Vipers.

The hallmark of this series is it's complex characters, playing out in the intriguing city that is Hong Kong.

I wish this series got more press as it is one of the best I've read in a long time.
I didn't really get along with the first book in this series, but reunited lovers is a trope that’s a weakness of mine, so I decided to give this a go.

I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would, unfortunately. I think I was lacking context about Allen and Conroy’s past relationship, so I never felt as strongly about their present day feelings as I wanted to.

It was also broke immersion for me that the Dragons are a successful triad gang that...doesn’t use guns. To me, it seemed like trying to

This is another gripping book in the Hong Kong nights series. The plot has action and suspense in it, I wondered how on earth it was going to be resolved, I couldn't see a way out. Conroy and Allen's past and the conflict they still feel is bound up in the dramatic part of the storyline as they struggle with what is loyalty and what is betrayal in the complicated world they live. Who are the heroes and who are the villains is unclear and sometimes people are a bit of both.
I really enjoyed readi

J.C. Long does it again!
Inspector Allen Hong was my favorite secondary character in the previous Hong Kong Nights books, so I was very eager to read a new book with him as one of the main characters. I'm happy to say that I was not disappointed.
Once again, the tense romantic plot is woven seamlessly with high-stakes action and suspense. Allen and Conroy's past feelings resurfacing amid danger and strife, their reluctant push and pull that gradually evolved into something deeper, really strike a

From that review: " A Matter of Justice (Hong Kong Nights Book 3) by J.C. Long is a tense, complicated and terrific novel. Gritty and intense, it delves into the corrupt landscape of triads, gang wars and bought cops in Hong Kong.  Throw in a old wounded romance between a triad member and a detective and all the elements are there for one memorable story.  Which is exactly what

A captivating read that takes you to Hong Kong and its criminal underworld. It's a second chance romance for Conroy and Allen who spent many years apart but are now spending time together and discovering that their love and attraction have not faded away. They have to struggle with the fine line between loyalty and betrayal in this story that's full of action and suspense.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

This book really surprised me. When I first started reading it I was kind of skeptical but the further I got into the read the more I got into the book. There is definitely quite a bite of danger, even more hostility, and even some rekindling of a long ago romance that was thought to be dead. This is the first book that I have read of J.C. long but if there are other books by this author that are as good as this one turned out to be then I will be reading them in the future.
