An April Woo/Mike Sanchez mystery. Glass's characters really come to life, and the mysteries are intriguing.

In my opinion one of the better parts of this book is the portrayal of the differing psychologies facing Detective April Woo -- does she try to please her traditional Chinese family or make decisions based on New York City values.

Interesting peek at some Chinese cultural expectations and a good thriller. However I don't enjoy seeing into the minds of serial killers, so I didn't like it. Kind of like a Lisa Gardner book.

I personally was quite disturbed by the story line. I admit it kept my attention and it was well written, but the story line was quite disturbing.

The first book in one of my favorite series: Detective April Woo and the NYPD. She teams with psychiatrist Jason Frank to stop a serial killer. Having an Asian protagonist leads to cultural clashes, especially between April and her mother. Highly recommended.

I don't know where the 1 1/2 star review came from but I thought this was a really good murder mystery. Sick but quite good.
