“See paints a fascinating portrait of a complex and enigmatic society, in which nothing is ever quite as it appears, and of the people, peasant and aristocrat alike, who are bound by its subtle strictures.”–San Diego Union-TribuneWhile David Stark is asked to open a law office in Beijing, his lover, detective Liu Hulan, receives an urgent message from an old friend imploring her to investigate the suspicious death of her daughter, who worked for a toy company about to be sold to David’s new client, Tartan Enterprises.Despite David’s protests, Hulan goes undercover at the toy factory in the rural village of Da Shui, deep in the heart of China. It is a place that forces Hulan to face a past she has long been running from. Once there, rather than finding answers to the girl’s death, Hulan unearths more questions, all of which point to possible crimes committed by David’s client. Suddenly Hulan and David find themselves on opposing sides: One of them is trying to expose a company and unearth a killer, while the other is ethically bound to protect his client. As pressures mount and danger increases, Hulan and David uncover universal truths about good and evil, right and wrong–and the sometimes subtle lines that distinguish them.“[See] illuminates tradition and change, Western and Eastern cultural differences. . . . All this in the middle of her thriller which is also about greed, corruption, abuse of the disadvantaged, the desperation of those on the bottom of the food chain, and love.”–The Tennessean“Sophisticated . . . graceful . . . See’s picture of contemporary China’s relationship with the United States is aptly played out through her characters.”–Los Angeles Times“Immediate, haunting and exquisitely rendered.”–San Francisco Chronicle

I am amazed by the versatility of Lisa See. It seems like all she has to do is touch pen to paper and she begins to unravel a magnificent story.
(Obviously she spends a lot of time doing research to be able to write with such clarity and understanding of her characters and the places they inhabit.)
It doesn't matter if she is writing the story of her own family in On Gold Mountain, or the three books, that make up The Red Princess Trilogy, Flower Net, The Interior and Dragon Bones, or the historical novels, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Peony in Love or finally Shanghai Girls and Dreams of Joy, you are taken into the lives of the characters and feel as though you are in the places they inhabit. She develops a sense of place and time as deeply as she develops her characters.

I read all of these books over a two month period.
I was felt as though I was living in China in several incarnations.
Lisa's writing enveloped me in every story. I was sorry when I finished the last book. I still feel like I left a familiar world and came back to the unsure world of reality.
Then I saw she has a new book to be released in June!
I can't wait.

This is one of the best thrillers I've read. I've recommended it to many people, and just bought it as a graduation present for my 18 year old grand-nephew. He likes thrillers. I advised his dad to tell the young man not to be "put off" by the "Red Princess" in the title, that this is the legal and social designation of the lead police inspector. I've read several Lisa See novels. Her descriptions of China are excellent, moving, frightening, historic and realistic. I also really loved "Shanghai Girls" the first in a sequel, and 'Dream of Pearl, the following sequel."

This is the middle of the three mysteries by Lisa See. I suggest you read them in order as I did. Flower Net, The Interior, and Dragon Bones. I finished one and immediately went to the next.
Lisa See has a way of writing that visually puts you in the middle of the action. This was an educational experience about China-- its history, its customs and a look at the character of the people
with an exciting mystery that is a true page turner. I will not explain the plot as other reviewers have done well. I will say that I love Lisa See's style of writing. She draws you into the story in such a way that it is like watching a movie and you can hardly wait to turn the page to see what is happening next. I loved her books Snow Flower and the Secret Fan and Peony In Love. I have Gold Mountain and Shanghai Girls on my Kindle and will read them next. You will not be disappointed with anything she has authored.

This the second in a series. It brought me a better understanding of the differences between Chinese culture and our own in general and a lot more insight into complex differences between different social status layers in China and the ways in which opportunities and living options are limited by class and location. All of this is just background to a satisfying mystery about multiple deaths with multiple murderers whose motivations are themselves multifaceted and in some cases related and in others completely unrelated.

I have travel to China and worked closely with factories. This book has open my eyes to some Chinese realities these people had suffered. Brain wash and complete strip from privacy, human rights, dignity. I fall in love with China over and over again, even thou I hate the post communistic mentality. Woman especially make me want to go more often and bring hope, kindness, compassion and self empowerment. Small steps. One at the time. Like new chair for sewers, no workers segregation, cafeteria for everyone and most of all no tea station next to toilets.

I enjoyed this 2nd visit to China with Lisa See's book. I had not figured out the complete ending and the book had several surprises in it. About halfway through I thought I had it all figured out and wanted to know why I needed another 100+ pages to finish, but I was wrong...I did not have the ending pegged. It's a good mystery and includes more details about like in China for ordinary people. Good read!

I've read novels about China years ago, but I knew nothing about China today. That and the characters and plot make See's mysteries fun to read.
Great character development with authentic history! Lisa’s prose is attention keeping!!

Highly recommend!
