by Henry Chang

[November 12, 2010]


Author Henry Chang will read from and discuss about his third detective noir novel Red Jade, and how it wraps up his ‘Chinatown Trilogy’ featuring Chinese-American NYPD Detective Jack Yu. Mr. Chang has previously presented on his first two novels Chinatown Beat and Year of the Dog at AAARI on December 12, 2009,

Red Jade - The bodies of a young man and woman are discovered at an address in the Bloody Angle, Chinatown’s historic Tong battleground. Chinese-American NYPD Detective Jack Yu had thought he was done working the Chinatown beat, but old allegiances pull him back in.  Is it a simple murder-suicide? As a puzzling web of links to the criminal underworld reveal themselves, Detective Yu’s investigation takes him across the country to another Chinatown, this one in Seattle. Jack tracks a cold-blooded Chinese gangster and a mysterious Hong Kong femme fatale.
