  2. Chen once again has written a fascinating mystery with well developed characters and a plot of intrigue Fast paced and coupled with exotic locale and culture, making reading her story a total enjoyment A conventional murder mystery made truly exceptional thanks to the charismatic and refreshingly unconventional protagonists quote from Kirkus Reviews


  3. It was a slow start, but a friend encouraged me to read on I am glad I did, it was quite interesting and exciting I ended up finishing it at one sitting toward the end A very well written book indeed Great for long flight reading, definitely.


  4. One thing I ve really loved about Chen s novels so far is that there is always a strong bond between the characters Shao Mei s two friends, Fang Chen and Ann Lee, are so dedicated to solving the murder of their long time friend that they end up following a lead in the case all the way to Beijing Their dedication and bravery calls forth familiar themes from Forget Me Not, chasing down answers in an involved and organized murder plot for someone whom they consider family John, as is customary in m [...]

  6. This is the third book I read written by G X Chen She never ceases to surprise me with her story The mystery keeps me going and eager to find out who and why In the mean time, I like to take my time to read all the details presented In addition to the twists and turns of the story, the narration of the scenery, the food and the people in China is so interesting It is like an extra bonus of learning about China.I enjoyed reading this book from the beginning all the way to the end.


  7. I have a major problem with THE MYSTERY OF MOUTAI The story itself isn t bad, a murder mystery that has to be solved by amateur sleuths The problem is the police in this case ignore the most prominent clue thereby making it necessary for the amateurs to Do their duty to their friend The clue is the title bottle of Moutai, a very, very expensive bottle of Chinese liquor that the victim could not have afforded Ann Lee and Dr Fang Chen, the friends investigating, know she couldn t have bought it on [...]


  8. This is great book in an what promises to be an engaging series I really enjoyed following Feng Chen and Ann Lee as they worked together to find out who killed their friend.Even though I was pretty sure I knew who the killer was early on, it didn t keep me from turning the pages as Feng Chen and Ann Lee followed the clues and helped catch a killer.I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a good mystery with solid characters and a lack of graphic violence or profanity I look forward to [...]


  9. I received a free copy of this book from GoodReads.I enjoyed reading this book The author has a nice writing style that gives a sense of authenticity to her characters the dialog, especially if read out loud, really sounds right The novel takes place in 1994, starting and ending in Boston but spending considerable time in between in China and Singapore The two principal characters are academics living in Boston but both were born in Asia, as was the author, so that gives an interesting flair to [...]
