Wong pens a winner in this classic noir with Chinese and paranormal touches. Attention to detail and character development highlight a tale rich in language and deed. Prepare for the unexpected as Lola wends her way through thugs and friends in a deadly adventure.
In 1934 Crescent City, P.I. and tough cookie Lola Starke smokes Egyptian cigarettes and frequents mah-jongg parlors. She is accompanied by a ghost, Aubrey, who shadows her every move and converses with other ghosts. She has two clients: Bodewell Arbogast, who wants her to find his friend, a former junkie; and AJ Copenhagen, the Assistant Deputy Commissioner of Gaming, who wants her to investigate illegally run mah-jongg tournaments. When the two cases converge, the danger grows. Murders and attempted murders complicate the investigation and put Lola in a precarious position. (CARINAPRESS.COM, dl $2.99)
