Praise for the Jack Yu series:

"Chinatown is the hero here. Better say antihero, because while the picture is vivid and often compelling, it's anything but pretty."—Kirkus Reviews

"[Chang] paints, in miniature, a harsh world of neon and shadows but doesn't slight the Big Questions. . . . [He takes] genre fiction to a deeper level, focusing on the mysteries of the human mind that a murder brings to light in those with some connection to the deceased. Mysteries, quirks, that might otherwise lie buried, but that subtly define who we are."—Ron Rosenbaum, Slate

"A vivid, street-level portrait . . . evokes the spirit, sights, smells and language of his setting in compelling and original fashion."—The New York Times

"This is a dense, moody, and intelligent glimpse at Chinese life in New York as seen through the world-weary eyes of a young man with a foot firmly planted in two cultures."—Booklist
