Review

" Stays with you long after the conventional thriller is forgotten."
-- "The Washington Post Book World
"" Lisa See is one of the classier practitioners of . . . the international thriller. . . . She draws her characters . . . with convincing depth, and offers up documentary social detail that reeks of freshly raked muck. See' s China is as vivid as Upton Sinclair' s Chicago."
-- "The New York Times Book Review
"" Mixing history, myths, and current events, "Dragon Bones" is an extraordinarily rich novel. It reveals the emotional and economical entanglement of China with the West, and tells a story of violence, lust, greed, fear, and desperation. The novel not only is a page-turner but is also timely."
-- HA JIN
Author of "Waiting" and "The Crazed
"" The novel flows beautifully, engaging readers in the mystery while gently introducing them to China' s rich cultural history. . . . See does for Chinese antiquities what Elizabeth Peters did for the Dead Sea Scrolls in "The Dead Sea Cipher,""
"-- Library Journal
"" An exciting murder mystery . . . This book truly captures man' s constant desire for material gain, and one unusual detective' s goal to right the wrongs in her world."
-- "Colorado Springs Independent
"" See succeeds in widening the reader' s knowledge about the politics and culture of contemporary China while racing along with an absorbing story."
-- "Publishers Weekly
"" [An] absorbing portrait of China."
-- "Lansing Star Journal" (MI)
" Fascinating."
-- "Booklist
