Mixing up the past and present this thriller sees PI Lydia Chin involved in a crime that takes her from 1930’s Shanghai to modern day New York. Is this a straight forward crime of theft or are their darker undertones that run much deeper and into the past of the Nazi war crimes. An interesting and different twist on the run of the mill crime novel.

If you like S. J. Rozan you might also like to read books by Casey Hill, Sue Grafton and Robert Crais.

Synopsis

Trail of Blood by S. J. Rozan

A lethal inheritance...China, 1938. Eighteen-year-old Rosalie Gilder flees Nazi-occupied Austria with her younger brother. Hidden among their belongings are a few precious family heirlooms, their only protection against the hard times that await them as they join Shanghai's growing population of Jewish refugees. New York, present day. Chinese-American detective Lydia Chin is hired by an old friend to investigate the recent theft of a cache of holocaust assets, thought to once belong to the Gilders. However, before she makes much headway, her friend is shot dead. Neither Lydia nor her partner, Bill, believe the NYPD's theory that his death was a robbery gone bad. Both fear they are no longer looking for a thief, but a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to reclaim the past...

Reviews

Nobody nails New York like SJ Rozan. Finally, we get to discover American crime writing's best-kept secret. I've loved Lydia Chin and Bill Smith for years and I guarantee you will too. * Val McDermid * One of my favourite crime writers...S.J. Rozan can write sentences that make my jaw literally drop. She's as good a prose stylist as I've seen in a long, long time ...to read S.J. Rozan is to experience the kind of pure pleasure that only a master can deliver * DENNIS LEHANE * Rozan paints with the full palette of the human heart, using a depth, detail, and nuance of character I haven't seen since Chandler * ROBERT CRAIS * Two of my favourite characters in crime fiction, Bill Smith and Lydia Chin * Linda Fairstein * Using letters and journal entries from the 1930s and 1940s, Rozan sets the stage for the modern quest for missing valuables stolen during the Holocaust. She also gives us a brilliant look into the culture of Chinese American families today and an exciting mystery. Readers who have waited patiently for this one will not be disappointed. Highly recommended. * Library Journal *
