    The book is a murder mystery which is mainly set in Beijing, two years after the brutal quashing of student protests in Tiananmen Square set in 1992 in fact The main character in my edition anyway is Bao Zheng, Deputy Inspector Second Class of the Chinese police The story starts with his visit to a traditional Chinese opera and the discovery of a murder, which went unnoticed during the performance The book follows Bao s attempts to solve this case and another investigation into ongoing The book is a murder mystery which is mainly set in Beijing, two years after the brutal quashing of student protests in Tiananmen Square set in 1992 in fact The main character in my edition anyway is Bao Zheng, Deputy Inspector Second Class of the Chinese police The story starts with his visit to a traditional Chinese opera and the discovery of a murder, which went unnoticed during the performance The book follows Bao s attempts to solve this case and another investigation into ongoing thefts of Chinese artifacts from an archeological dig outside the city A beautiful singer and the triads may also be involved As a member of the Communist Party, Bao needs to be seen to tow the party line talk the talk walk the walk There s always the possibility that someone is watching and reporting back on any political misdemeanour and it takes some skill to know who to trust and how to deal with political constraints and still get your job done According to his boss, for example, the chief suspect is the one who doesn t conform or whose background doesn t reflect the Party ideal.What did I think The murder mystery was good, but I enjoyed the insight into Communist China the most The political tightrope walk, the curious mixture of ancient Chinese culture mixed with strains of modern capitalism and the rule of the Omni present Communist Party In the story, Party members are asked to write about how they experienced events in Tiananmen Square, events which Bao has his doubts about How Bao deals with this, is as much part of the storyline as his police work.I also enjoyed the insight into internal Chinese prejudice. views on the excesses of Westernised Hong Kong, the differences between the South and the North, ancient and modern, town and country, rice and noodles.This was a quick, but very enjoyable read I liked it so much, I ve just started the second book in the series

    This book takes place just a few years after the Tiananmen square incident and I really enjoyed the main character and the setting but the actual mystery plot was just a bit underdone
