Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This high-octane revenge caper, set largely in the Chinese crime underworld, follows a sheltered American college student pursuing his father’s killers. A propulsive entertainment that also raises interesting ideas about identity and privilege.” New York Times Book Review
“Nieh’s Victor is witty, passionate, competitive, honorable, and courageous enough to face some of the deadliest players in the Beijing underworld as he confronts his father’s past in this superb, sophisticated thriller.” BBC
“Nieh, himself the son of a Chinese immigrant, has great fun twisting the trope of the immigrant-parent-with-a-devastating-past in this page turner.” The Oregonian
“Remarkable…This impressive blend of crime and coming-of-age marks Nieh as a talent to watch.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Polyglot Chung displays his accents in Nieh’s internationally peripatetic mystery. With admirable control, he creates a bone-shaking wild ride.” Booklist (starred audio review)
“Happily, Nieh leaves the door open for a sequel to this staccato-paced, character-driven thriller, and readers will welcome the opportunity to follow good-guy Victor’s path of retribution and self-discovery.” Booklist
“Grabs readers early and doesn’t readily let go.” Library Journal
