Review by Library Journal (2009-09-01)

Young women working the streets of Beijing are being brutally murdered, and Li Yan, the head of Beijing's serious crime squad, must stop the killer. When the next victim is an American, the U.S. Embassy demands that the autopsy be done by an American pathologist, and Margaret Campbell, who is living with Li Yan and their baby daughter, is drawn back into her work. Unfortunately, she also attracts the attention of the Beijing Ripper, who is always two steps ahead of Li Yan's team.

Verdict: Employing a tightly woven plot and detailing interpersonal relationships that reveal more of his protagonists' background, May, the only Western member of the Chinese Crime Writers' Association, has outdone himself in this sixth entry (after Snakehead) in his China series. This is sure to please readers who like watching their heroes face life-threatening situations in far-off locales. Recommended also for fans of Qiu Xiaolong's Inspector Chen series.
