Publisher's Summary

An American investigating his mentor's murder finds himself ensnared in a web of lies and treachery in China, where even tomorrow's weather is a state secret. From a nightmarish interrogation to assassination by cobra, A Death in China takes readers on a trip with no rest stops through a world of claustrophobic mistrust and terrifying danger.

Never go to China

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Well it's not Hiaasen. Was pretty disappointed it's not his regular humorous tales. It's pretty depressing.

Poor use of a credit.

What did you like best about A Death in China? What did you like least?

This is a Hiaasen from the early 80's and is nothing like what the lovers of Hiassen have come to expect. It is further drug down by a poor choice in readers. He is not terrible but neither is he particularly good. The timing is just off. This makes it a so-so book with a so-so reader and a real disappointment for Hiassen fans.
