Praise for Chinatown Beat:

"A worthy debut. . . . Chang writes with stark power and authority, covering the territory as only an insider can. He evokes the spirit, sights, smells and language of his setting in compelling fashion."--Chicago Sun-Times

"Yu is a fellow whose adventures should be worth following."--The Washington Post Book World

"Should make the locals sit up and gasp."--The New York Times Book Review

"It doesn't get much better than this stunning novel."--The Boston Globe

"A fascinating look at New York's Chinese-American urban community and its subcultures."--Publishers Weekly

"A great beginning to what should be a worthy series."--Library Journal

"Very slick, very smart."--Globe and Mail

"Classic noir. . . . A real discovery."--Richard Price

He's been transferred to a different precinct, but Detective Jack Yu cannot get away from Chinatown's criminals--his old friends--who have hooked up with the Hong Kong-based triads in an elaborate nationwide credit card fraud. He also cannot escape the Chinese victims whose stories cry out for justice, like the teenage Chinese take-out delivery boy brutally murdered in the projects.

Henry Chang was born and raised in New York City's Chinatown, where he still lives. His debut novel, Chinatown Beat, was hailed in several best of 2006 lists.
