    Christopher Banks, an English boy born in early-20th-century Shanghai, is orphaned at age nine when both his mother and father disappear under suspicious circumstances. He grows up to become a renowned detective, and more than 20 years later, returns to Shanghai to solve the mystery of the disappearances.

    Everett Leiter says: "Just short of 5 stars"
    "Banal and inconsistant"
    Overall

    A waste of time. Many central ideas and major plot lines written into the mystery in an attempt to convince the reader of its depth are left by the wayside with no explaination, leaving only banality.

    One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bulls**t. Everyone knows this. Each of us contributes his share. But we tend to take the situation for granted. Most people are rather confident of their ability to recognize bulls**t and to avoid being taken in by it. So the phenomenon has not aroused much deliberate concern. We have no clear understanding of what bulls**t is, why there is so much of it, or what functions it serves.

    sara jane says: "The philosophy of bullshit"
    "What a complete waste of time"
    Overall

    The one good thing about the book is that it is short. Otherwise it would have been even more of a waste of time. He trys to be philosophical but just ends up sounding like an a very unimaginative bore.
