    A good solid holiday read Feminist enough in the sex positive Phrynne Fisher sense not to make me want to throw it across the room Mainly a bunch of tropes The back of the book says nothing is what it seems but if you have read the detective genre before then literally everything is what you'd expect It's fun anyway and its minus the misogyny of 90% of the booksA bonus for me was the Sydney setting I love a recognisably Australian setting the if it's places I have been to I am going to see if there are of these because it was fun It would be even better if it was a little complex but as holiday reading it is enjoyable and not insulting

    This started strong but the plot focused too much on Claudia’s life instincts and skills in a similar way to Eve Zaremba’s Beyond Hope At a certain point even the best detectives make mistakes bad calls poor choices but Claudia beavers steadily away at her Chinese puzzle with remarkably little emphasis on actually solving it and lots on just satisfying her own curiosity which she does admirably A decent entry into the feminist detective genre with some great atmospheric Sydney settings but nothing explosive

    Ok ok There're several plot weaknesses and failures that beggar credibility the main character surveils a subject all night including his entrance and exit from a hotel room door that she notes and then a few days later she can't call the hotel to ask the guest from that room number; she instead fails to get the hotel to connect her with his many aliases and gives up BUT There're a couple pages of sparkling dialogue Much of the language is Aussie specific collouialism that I totally don't get but that's ok The historical context the author mentions intrigues The rest has spoiler alerts Stop reading here Still urbane and elegant but now I could see the eyes They were innocent like babies' eyes but he was neither innocent nor a baby I'd seen those eyes on tai chi masters They came from a mind untroubled by emotion a stilled lake that reflected but did not reveal p 43 The first Chinese in Australia settled in the Rocks in the 1830s then moved to the Haymarket when real estate got too expensive And talking about real estate the famous LJ Hooker was Chinese His given name was Tin You in the early days there were 8000 men to one woman The Chinese could bring out their menfolk as laborers but they had to be property owners before they could bring out women Owning property also made a man a better marriage prospect back in China So the brides who came out were often better educated and from higher social classes than their husbands As a conseuence they became influential members of the new community They still were There were political divisions and religious divisions When the Chinese arrived in Sydney they went to where their clan was and only did business with people from their own village Now nobody cared about this said Mr Lau only those keepers of tradition the old ladies The joss houses were associated with clans as well The Ko You one in Alexandria and the Sze Yap in Glebe Once there had been many opium dens and gambling houses Fantan Mr Lau was proud to have been one of the Chinese who had helped clean up Chinatown As an influential Chinese man the police had asked him how this might be done Of course a white face wouldn't have a chance of getting in through the door But the door wasn't the only way There were also the roofs The Fire Brigade got their ladders up there and busted the joints And that as far as Mr Lau was concerned was the end of it p 66 67
