A tripped out sarcastic novel of urban alienation centred around a mysterious murder. Set in a Beijing populated by low-life gangsters and villains, it is narrated by the chief suspect of the crime though even he seems unclear as to whether he committed it or not. Rivetting. The most brilliantly entertaining hardboiled novel of the '90s...call it China noir. If you can imagine Raymond Chandler crossed with Bruce Lee that gives you the flavour. Most ultimately cool.' - Stephen King'
