Journal Entry 1 by ravencat from Buffalo, New York USA on Friday, September 3, 2010
From the cover: The first body was found in ice: the U.S. ambassador's son,entombed in a frozen lake outside Beijing's Forbidden City.Thousands of miles away,in the heat-baked hold of a Chinese smuggling ship,another corpse is uncovered, this one a Red Prince, a scion of Chinese political elite. Suspecting the deaths are linked, the American and Chinese governments pair ambitious attorney David Stark and brilliant detective Liu Hulan to uncover a killerand a conspiracy. This debut thriller is a standout....Complex and exciting....Cleverly confounds readers expectations.

Update 19 March 2012:

This story which was set in Beijing brings together a Chinese cop and an American D.A. who try to solve a string of murders while intertwining with Chinese history and loyalty. A great story, well written and definitely a page turner!

Just came home from a little holiday and finished this one on our four-hour drive home. This was an exciting story full of action and nice twists. This book also introduced some interesting Chinese habits and parts of Chinese culture, I liked those! I have read one other book from Lisa See and enjoyed it, it was nice to notice that also this book was gripping and fast to read although from totally different genre!

Thanks for sharing this book! With this book I'm also attending Different Cultures -reading challenge in Finnish forum.
