Product description

Review

Engrossing and atmospheric, CITY OF ICE takes us through the dirty snow of a Chinese province in a hunt for a serial killer. . An unmissable journey with a Confucian knight errant for the 21st century. -- Cara Black, New York Times bestselling author

Everything one could want in a crime novel - insight, thrills, and entertainment. This is not one to miss! -- Robert K. Tanenbaum, New York Times bestselling author

A gruesome crime; a rural cop with a keen mind and a sense of his place in modern-day China?CITY OF ICE is written with humor and insight, supplying from page one a plot that rolls steadily down the runway, constantly gaining speed the whole way until with a final burst of takeoff velocity, it takes you to a place you never thought you'd be. -- James Church

Like Martin Cruz Smith's Arkady Renko or Donna Leon's Commissario Guido Brunetti, Klingborg's Inspector Lu Fei is a determined investigator as well as a wonderful guide to a country and culture unfamiliar to most readers. A thrilling mystery and a delightful novel from beginning to end -- Barbara Nickless, bestselling author

A wonderful view into the life of a rural town in the orbit of one of China's huge but secondary cities. Klingborg truly understands how Chinese bureaucracies work; at the same time he's a wizard at believable characters, compelling situations, and a propulsive plot. I'm already looking forward to the second book in this series. -- SJ Rozan, Edgar Award winner and best-selling author --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From the Publisher

Brian Klingborg has an MA from Harvard University where his major field of concentration was Chinese Cultural Anthropology. He lived and worked in China for several years. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
