Lisa See does it again in this mystery that spans the globe between California and China. Chinese culture is vividly authentic. The characters are believable and the story is current. The struggle between the east and west is interesting and the struggles that China has been experiencing is accurate. Liu Hu Lan continues to be an interesting character to follow, though I felt she was a little too cold this time. There were a few instances where I actually didn't like her. She just seemed overly cold and unfeeling. Whether this is indicative of Chinese women of her status or just how the character was written I don't know. I would definitely read it again and recommend it to anyone who is fascinated by Chinese culture and great mysteries.

I liked this story however, I couldn't get past the robotic and almost monotone voice of the narrator.
