Ships from and sold by BOOK- LAND. Jack Yu is a troubled but reliable NYPD homicide detective whose assigned territory is New York’s Chinatown. The consummate loner, Jack is unable to truly trust anyone above him or beneath him in the official police chain of command, while he is regarded with suspicion at best and hostility at worst with most (though not all) of New York’s Asian community.

This is the third book in the detective Jack Yu crime stories I've read in just a month. I went from hardly ever read novels to can't put down this book. This book follows the same characters from the previous 2 books and continue to interest me with details of police process and procedures, and the hierarchy of the triads. This is by far the best of the 3 I've read. It's intense with plenty of easy to read description in great details. I'm very satisfied with this book and I know I will continue with Jack Yu to the next book, Death Money.

as I live in the same city (certainly was oblivious to what actually was going down in Chinatown in the ‘90s as an outsider) I love his books. quite a good writer; just extremely skilled and hope someday he does write some more.

I enjoyed "Chinatown Beat" and "Year of the Dog" a great deal but this book was the best of the series. So far anyway; perhaps the book due out next year will be even better. This book clarifies so much of the stories from the previous 2 and throws in a lot of good detective work and tension. The author gets better and better and I look forward to more of the same. This was a really good read.

An excellent story, well told. I hope the author will continue to write about the search for the missing lady. I enjoyed this book very much.

I HAVE ENJOYED HENRY CHANG'S NOVELS, AND I BOUGHT THIS ONE AT AMAZON FOR A MUCH LOWER PRICE THAN THE OTHERS. FOR GOOD REASON: HIS BELOVED EDITOR WAS ON VACATION, OR IN VERY BAD SHAPE. THE BOOK IS FULL OF TYPOS AND SENTENCES THAT GO NOWHERE, DISCONNECTED THEMES AND OTHER EDITORIAL PROBLEMS. "RED JADE" NEEDS TO BE RE-EDITED AND RE-PUBLISHED.
HENRY CHANG IS A VERY GOOD AUTHOR, AND HE DOESN'T DESERVE THIS SLOPPY EDITING JOB.
"CHINATOWN BEAT" IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF HIS QUALITY.

Well written

Gritty, meaty crime novel that delivers like a kick to the chops!
Detective Jack Yu somehow can't escape New York's Chinatown in this third novel in the series. Apparently, he is the Fifth Precinct's token Chinese-American, called upon when sensitivity to the community and its inhabitants is necessary. He had recently transferred to the Ninth Precinct in Brooklyn and he moved to that borough's Sunset Park area following the death of his father, but he can't escape his past.

In the early morning hours, he's called in to handle an apparent murder-suicide, his presence requested by the fathers of the victims who believe he can provide the necessary "face saving" for the families. This task accomplished, Jack then pays attention to a couple of open cases, eventually traveling to Seattle at his own expense in an attempt to solve them.

All three novels in the series are economically written, especially short chapters, with a smattering of Chinese words for flavor (no MSG). This police procedural moves in logical progression across the continent, looking at more than the Chinatown of New York's Lower East Side.

Recommended.
