Review:

"Nobody nails New York like SJ Rozan. Finally, we get to discover American crime writing's best-kept secret. I've loved Lydia Chin and Bill Smith for years and I guarantee you will too." ( Val McDermid)

"One of my favourite crime writers...S.J. Rozan can write sentences that make my jaw literally drop. She's as good a prose stylist as I've seen in a long, long time ...to read S.J. Rozan is to experience the kind of pure pleasure that only a master can deliver" ( DENNIS LEHANE)

"Rozan paints with the full palette of the human heart, using a depth, detail, and nuance of character I haven't seen since Chandler" ( ROBERT CRAIS)

"Two of my favourite characters in crime fiction, Bill Smith and Lydia Chin" ( Linda Fairstein)

"Using letters and journal entries from the 1930s and 1940s, Rozan sets the stage for the modern quest for missing valuables stolen during the Holocaust. She also gives us a brilliant look into the culture of Chinese American families today and an exciting mystery. Readers who have waited patiently for this one will not be disappointed. Highly recommended." ( Library Journal)

Book Description:
