Early Shamus Award-winning novel in the Lydia Chen/Bill Smith series. Mainly focuses on Smith this time around, and has an interesting locale of an old age home in the Bronx, surrounded by gangs and lots of bad guys!

Outstanding...I particularly like the way the stories are from either Bill's or Lydia's point of view, giving a balance to their interactions. Also, no waste of silly space-taking dialogue.

The Lydia Chin/Bill Smith series is not only literate, enthralling detective fiction, but is also made more interesting by the appealing and somewhat eccentric protagonists and the juxtaposition of their backgrounds. As an American WASP married to a 1st generation Chinese, I especially appreciate the problems they run into in their relationship. The author has Lydia's family dynamics and the culture of NYC's Chinatown portrayed with accuracy and sensitivity.
