A Loyal Character Dancer - Qiu Xiaolong
Book 2 in the Chief Inspector Chen Cao series does not disappoint. I really like Chen; I like his poetic soul and I enjoy reading about how he navigates late-90s Chinese politics while solving crimes. The details about daily life in Shanghai and other places in China at this time really paint a picture for me, and they make me want to read more about this time period, Chinese culture, etc. I have 1 more book to read in this series before I can read the book that's been waiting patiently in my TBR pile since the Borders Last Days sale book buying spree - I am so glad I got that book, so that I could discover this series. Recommended.
