Well, at first I thought it started out a little slow, but it does pick up towards the end. The ending and entire story line is pretty cliche though. What I found the most interesting was the view into the lifestyles in Shanghai, China, in the early 1990s. I won't be reading any more of this author though, because I felt the story dragged and could easily have been completed in about half the number of pages. Although, that too, may have been deliberate to draw attention to the way things work in China.
