Chinatown Beat (A Detective Jack Yu Investigation #1)
by Henry Chang
Before I started this book I had never read anything by this author, but his name started with a "C" and it was a mystery/detective story which is a genre I like.
It took a lot of getting used to because it is written from a NYC Chinese point of view which made it seem like an alien world to me. After I just let it flow into my mind though it was evocative and kinda scary.
Both the prejudice Jack Yu encounters in daily life from all sides and the attitudes the people of the area are different and is quite sad. Prejudice is alive and well.
I have decided to continue with the series as once I let myself flow into the book it did carry me to a very different and interesting life.
