?Classic noir. . . . A real discovery.??Richard Price

He?s been transferred to a different precinct, but Detective Jack Yu cannot get away from Chinatown?s criminals?his old friends?who have hooked up with the Hong Kong-based triads in an elaborate nationwide credit card fraud. He also cannot escape the Chinese victims whose stories cry out for justice, like the teenage Chinese take-out delivery boy brutally murdered in the projects.

Henry Chang was born and raised in New York City?s Chinatown, where he still lives. His debut novel, Chinatown Beat, was hailed in several best of 2006 lists.
