FROM THE AUTHOR:

"I've been asked about the subjects I write about: Chinatown and Crime.
I'd always wanted to tell these Chinatown stories, true stories of ordinary immigrants struggling to succeed, against the backdrop of organized Chinese crime,-the Triads, the Tongs, and the vicious streetgangs. I also wanted to position the stories within the greater context of what affects Chinese-Americans nationally and internationally.
My protagonist, Chinese-American NYPD Detective Jack Yu, takes the reader on a tour of the Chinatown underbelly while following a police investigation. To me, the stories should not only revolve around the conventional mystery of the 'whodunit' but should also interpret the mystery of why and how things occur in all these Chinatowns across America, and show how crime impacts the survivors and the families involved.
In my books, there will always be tidbits of Chinatown history and sociology dancing in the shadows of the storyline, giving voice back to the voiceless, shedding light on things people don't like to talk about, like exploitation, discrimination, violence and racism in America.
The stories are not simply about cops and criminals, but about how organized crime shadows the immigrant demimonde and controls the underbelly of Chinatown through violence and brutality.
So sit back, and keep your hands in plain sight.
Welcome to Chinatown.
