Publisher Description

An American investigates a murder amid the secrecy and corruption of China in this crime thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author of Razor Girl.
 
Art history professor Tom Stratton hasn’t seen his former mentor David Wang for years—until they unexpectedly run into each other while Stratton is on a guided tour of China. But the reunion doesn’t last long. After Wang is found dead—and the American embassy fumbles the investigation—Stratton sets out to solve the mystery of the killing on his own.
 
Before long, he’s tangled in a web of corruption that reaches the highest seats of power. Beset by the suffocating secrecy and subterfuge of communist China, Stratton must find his friend’s murderer—before the fury of a brutal conspiracy closes in on him.
 
Along with Powder Burn and Trap Line, this international mystery is one of the early suspense thrillers written by Carl Hiaasen and Bill Montalbano, a writing team praised for their “fine flair for characters and settings” (Library Journal).

Not a typical Hiaasen book

This was written in 1984, apparently a joint effort. While not as irreverent and Floridian as Mr. Hiassen's more recent work, it is a good story (a proverbial page-turner), and well worth the reader's time!

Yucko!

If this was the first Hiaasen book I'd ever read I wouldn't pick up another one. This was so bad I wanted the toss it across the room before I was into the 5th chapter. Not possible since it is in my iPad. What a bunch of blather. The plot was a good idea but it was subsumed beneath a pile of smarmy cliched overworkes phrasing and pointless side stories. All I can say after slogging through it it "Booo! Boooo!"

A Death in China

Carl, I have thoroughly enjoyed every book YOU wrote. Thanks, but this is awful, and an embarassment. Why would you ruin your reputation for such a pethetic attempt at a novel? Shame on you.
