Summary
Det. Jack Yu returns in this crime novel of fraud, murder, and "another tantalizing glimpse of precinct and street life in Manhattan's Chinatown" (Publishers Weekly). Reassigned to the Ninth District after being wounded in the line of duty, NYPD Det. Jack Yu settles in for a welcome change of pace, away from the memories of his childhood on his last beat. But the past has a way of sneaking up on him. When a bloody shootout erupts in Chinatown, his old precinct asks Jack for help. Back in his old stomping grounds, he finds himself immersed in all the crimes he thought he'd left behind: murders, gambling, credit card fraud, and tong wars. Navigating the bookies, fraudsters, and gangsters who make up the new face of his old world, Jack is back on the case in the second thrilling installment of a series that offers "a vivid, street-level portrait" of New York's Chinatown (The New York Times). "An Asian-flavored The Wire . . . A richly atmospheric panorama of New York's immigrant demimonde." —Entertainment Weekly "Year of the Dog arrived . . . And suddenly my life became an orgy of reading pleasure." —Slate "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 "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 deftly keeps the action moving as he brings the Chinatown neighborhood alive in all its guises." —Publishers Weekly
