Customer Review

on 21 March 2014
What a mystery! As someone interested in murder, both real and fictional, why had I never heard of this one? Perhaps because it happened in Beijing. This story of a father's pursuit of justice for his savagely murdered and mutilated daughter is a constant page-turner. Mr French approaches the mystery, not as a writer of detective fiction, but as an historian, and that adds to the story, he doesn't have to search for angles, the real plot is full of them! A great read about a slaying in the shadow of the Japanese atrocities in wartime China. This is a world that has disappeared but Paul French brings it vividly back to life.
