    " My first S.J. Rozan mystery. Sorry I read it out of sequence, but enjoyed it immensely. Great use of letters and diary entries to weave in back story on a subject I knew nothing about: Jewish war refugees in Shanghai. Rozan weaves a good plot,with lots of twists and turns, carried along by well developed characters. I'm looking forward to starting at the beginning of the series. "
