Product description


"When you think about crime in Chicago in the 1930s, it's bootleggers and gangsters who come to mind, not tong wars and Chinese politics. One of the delights of "Tears of the Dragon," Holly Baxter's first book in a proposed series of mysteries about a Chicago family struggling to survive the Depression, is the way she plants a rare and colorful Asian flower in the overused ground of the period.

Her friend Bernice, a flighty but generous young woman, earns a bit more working for a Chinese importer of antiques and jade. Browne goes through several genre staples, like finding a body and witnessing a murder. But what really earns the early raves the book has received is the way Baxter (a pseudonym for Paula Gosling, an American writer who lives in England and has won several awards there) blends her
