GHOST MONTH by Ed Lin
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: July 29, 2014

"The teeming Taipei setting and the tormented hero combine to create a furious energy that transcends a whodunit plot too mundane even to capture Jing-nan's full attention."
The creator of the Robert Chow mysteries (One Red Bastard, 2012, etc.), set in New York's Chinatown in the 1970s, turns to contemporary Taiwan for this ambitious, muddled tale of murder in a culture that sees itself as both the center of the world and overshadowed by its powerful mainland rival.

ONE RED BASTARD by Ed Lin
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 1, 2012

"The mystery is both confusing and obvious, but Lin (Snakes Can't Run, 2010, etc.) has a rewardingly sharp eye for both the issues that divide the denizens of New York's Chinatown and the features that bind them together, as Robert continues to be bound to his ex-girlfriend Barbara, in spite of it all."
It's 1976. The Republic of China and the People's Republic of China duel by proxy, pulling NYPD Officer Robert Chow into their murderous wake. Read full book review >
