I love Lydia and Bill, but this story was pretty complex with too many Chinese names and I found my attention starting to wander.

Fifth installment of Lydia Chin and Bill Smith series.

Lydia, a Chinatown native, goes undercover to search for clues as to the whereabouts of four missing waiters.

This, the 5th book in the Lydia Chin/Bill Smith series was my favorite. I really enjoyed the detailed look at Chinatown, the "polite' way to get your point across, etc. The book did have many characters but I did not find them confusing. I also enjoyed the evolving relationship between Bill and Lydia and, as always, laughed outloud at encounters with Lydia's Chinese mother.

This is an excellent book that is part of an excellent series. I found it through PBS, which is one of the great benefits of belonging. A mystery set in NYC Chinatown with insights of what goes on in people's lives there. Well developed characters and storyline. What more could one ask for? I only wish that S.J.Rozan was a more prolific writer.
