Red Mandarin Dress

Серия: "-"

Political corruption, capitalist greed and past injustices are all revealed when Inspector Chen investigates a serial killer in Shanghai. An early morning jogger found her. Clad in nothing but a red mandarin dress, she had been dumped, barely concealed, on a traffic island. The death of a dancing girl was unpleasant but this was particularly unusual in that she had been left openly in the centre of town. She had probably angered one of the Mr Big Bucks that were taking over and transforming Shanghai. Inspector Chen is an intuitive investigator, a talented poet and an honourable man on the edge of a nervous breakdown. Desperate to find a way to release himself from the perilous police career that had been chosen for him, he takes time off to begin an MA in Literature. Then another girl is found dead... With a serial killer on the loose. Chen is pulled back to work and into his most dangerous assignment yet.

Qiu Xiaolong (zh-s|裘小龙, pronEng|tʃjuː ʃiaʊlɒŋ "cheeoh sheeao long" in English, born Shanghai, China, 1953) [http://www.mysteryreaders.org/athomeqiu.html Interview with Qiu Xiaolong] , Cara Black, Mystery Readers International] is an English language poet, crime novelist, critic, and academic, currently living in St. Louis, Missouri with his wife Wang Lijun and daughter Julia Qiu. He originally visited the United States in 1988 to write a book about T. S. Eliot, but following the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 a newspaper reported on his previous fundraising efforts for Chinese students, and he was forced to remain in America to avoid persecution by the Communist Party of China.Citation | last = Allfree | first = Claire | title = Author interview: Qui Xiaolong - Refusing to join the Party | newspaper = Metro | pages = p.23 | year = 2007 | date = July 12 2007 ]

He has published several mystery novels, including "Death of a Red Heroine", which won the Anthony Award for best first novel in 2001, and "A Loyal Character Dancer". Both books featured Chief Inspector Chen Cao, a poetry-quoting cop with integrity.
