This dark provacative story captivated me. Ren and Ji Lin search for their place in 1930s Malaya where class and sex define you and predict your future. There stories are interwoven, every other chapter is told from each of their points of view. There is a bit of Chinese/Malayan magic and myth so sometimes the truth is blurred. However, the folklore leads you to think that you know who the killer, but the ending is unexpected. It's also the story of secrets--secrets that we keep from our family and friends. Even those secrets that we keep from ourselves. There is an underlying love story. The ending is satisfying.
