Lydia Chin, a Chinese-American P.I. who lives in New York City’s Chinatown, is hired for a simple job. She’s to deliver the ransom for a set of stolen sketches that comprise the inaugural collection of fashion designer Genna Jing and her new label, Mandarin Plaid. But everything on this simple job goes terribly wrong. The ransom is stolen out from under Lydia, her sometimes partner, Bill Smith, is arrested, and just as she is trying to sort out exactly what is really going on, the client fires her. Lydia, however, isn’t about to just let it go. Determined to find answers and preserve her pride, Lydia and Bill follow a confusing trail that leads from the sweatshops of Chinatown to the drawing rooms of Manhattan’s wealthy Upper East Side and into a dark underworld of prostitution, drugs, and murder. All they need to uncover is who stole the sketches, who hijacked the ransom payment, and—most important—who would kill to keep them from the truth.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rozan, as usual, creates a fully realized Manhattan populated with memorable characters.” Publishers Weekly
“Down-to-earth yet subtly intuitive, Chin is a far cry from most fictional detectives. Thanks to Cheung’s reading, she becomes even less of a traditional investigator, a fact that makes this story all the more interesting. Cheung bends her voice to create realistic accents for the wide variety of supporting characters in an inventive mystery that will keep listeners guessing.” AudioFile
“Private investigators Lydia Chin and Bill Smith enter the world of New York’s high-fashion business, hired by aspiring designer Genna Jing when the sketches for her first solo show are stolen and held for a $50,000 ransom…The first installment in this series was impressive; subsequent ones just keep getting better and better. Don’t miss this one.” Booklist
“Lydia Chin, Rozan’s sharp, funny and sexy detective who operates out of New York’s Chinatown, is back in action in this lively story about the fashion industry—from the glamorous designer studios to the sweatshops where illegal immigrants do the dirty work. Lydia knows the sweatshop scene well: her mother worked in one while she was growing up. Now she and her sometimes dangerous partner, Bill Smith, have to find out who will do anything—including murder—to keep a young designer from launching her new company.” Amazon.com editorial review
