Product description

Review

'Qiu gives a fresh perspective on the forces shaping a new China and the influences of the Cultural Revolution and then Tiananmen in 1989.' - Sunday Morning Post, Hong Kong

'A luminescent synthesis of thriller and literary novel' - Independent on A LOYAL CHARACTER DANCER

Stupendous - Fresh Air, National Public Radio, USA on DEATH OF A RED HEROINE

'With strong and subtle characterisation, Qui Xiaolong draws us into a fascinating world where the greatest mystery revealed is the mystery of present-day China itself.' - John Harvey

'Compelling . . . this fast-moving crime novel admirably depicts the intriguing struggles of characters grasping a foothold in a new and rising China.' - TLS on A CASE OF TWO CITIES

'A great read.' - Guardian on WHEN RED IS BLACK

Chen is an irresistible protagonist . . . Qiu s portrait of China in transition, a potential eye-opener for many of his Western readers, is an equally compelling attraction. - Kirkus Reviews on DEATH OF A RED HEROINE

'A vivid portrait of modern Chinese society ... full of the sights, sounds and smells of Shanghai . . . A work of real distinction.' - Wall Street Journal
