Publisher's Summary

February 1940. In San Francisco's Chinatown, fireworks explode as the city celebrates Chinese New Year with a Rice Bowl Party, a three-day-and-night carnival designed to raise money and support for China war relief. Miranda Corbie is a 33-year-old private investigator who stumbles upon the fatally shot body of Eddie Takahashi. The Chamber of Commerce wants it covered up. The cops acquiesce. All Miranda wants is justice - whatever it costs. From Chinatown tenements, to a tattered tailor's shop in Little Osaka, to a high-class bordello draped in Southern Gothic, she shakes down the city - her city - seeking the truth.

Critic Reviews

“Stanley's stunning first in a new series introduces a gutsy, independent heroine who isn't always likable.” ( Publishers Weekly)

Disappointed in the Narrator. Story is Great!

I LOVE Kelli Stanley and have read all her books. This narrator was flat and difficult to pay attention to. I bought a hard copy of the book. The story, setting, and writing is strong.
