Praise

Praise for Year of the Dog

“An Asian-flavored The Wire . . . A richly atmospheric panorama of New York’s immigrant demimonde.”
Entertainment Weekly

Year of the Dog arrived . . . And suddenly my life became an orgy of reading pleasure.”
—Slate

Praise for the Jack Yu series

“A vivid, street-level portrait . . . evokes the spirit, sights, smells and language of his setting in compelling and original fashion.”
The New York Times

“Think you know New York? Then let Henry Chang show you around. This is tough crime fiction that reaches into the darkest corners of Chinatown and beyond, written with a deep understanding of the world through which Detective Jack Yu moves, and a soulful compassion for those who inhabit it. Every word has the ring of truth about it.”
—Stuart Neville, author of The Final Silence

“Destiny could find no better assistant than the decent, determined Det. Jack Yu.”
The Wall Street Journal

“For readers who relish noir suspense, it doesn’t get much better.”
The Boston Globe

“A classic noir, filled with longing, violence, and that uniquely urban melancholy, but it also brings something new to the table, a loving specificity of a people and place, the multicultures of New York’s Chinatown, that has rarely if ever been encountered in fiction before. A real discovery.”
—Richard Price, New York Times bestselling author of The Whites
