  1. There is something about this book that is undefinable I can t tell you why I like it as much as I do I m not easy to please and this book gets four stars because I ve only read it once I ve read my five star books several imes and they hold up What I can say is that I can t seem to stop thinking about Bobby Zha It is a very well crafted story that drew me in from page one and held me in thrall to the very end I d be interested it communicating with others who have read this book and found There is something ab...

  2. I can t say I enjoyed this very much at all I know they say that it s good for characters to have flaws, but I felt Bobby was full of flaws that made him completely unlikable The only quality he had was that he loved his daughter.I found this very hard to get through and although quite an interesting plot line, I didn t think it was written all that well It was hard...

  3. It doesn t make much sense I was curious to see what was going to happen, but I didn t buy any of it A hot mess of unbelievable elements And I m not talking about the fox At least it has an adequate ending.

  4. Detective investigates his own murder in near future San Francisco Been a while since I read any JCG, and I really enjoyed this.

  5. I want so much to like this book The idea of a dead man waking up in another body to try and solve his own murder intrigues me but it took some serious masochism to finish the book It could go the mythical route a 9 tailed celestial fox shows the chinese mythos or even an almost sci fi route surgery to keep my interest Unfortunately, this book goes nowhere The main character, Zha, has the makings of a well rounded little sh t whose flaws outweigh his plusses who just might try to make i I want so much to like this book The idea of a dead man waking up in another body to try and solve his own murder intrigues me but it took some serious masochism to finish the book It could go the mythical route a 9 tailed celestial fox shows the chinese mythos or even an almost sci fi route surgery to keep my interest Unfortunately, this book goes nowhere The main character, Zha, has the makings of a well rounded little sh t whose flaws outweigh his plusses who just might try to make it right but the author can t keep the character in mind Zha is all over the place He starts out as a misunderstood cop who has an empathy with the street people and ends up nowhere The flaws, including womanizing and a forgetfulness when it comes to family, seem like additions instead of the integral pieces they should have been The author must have intended for these flaws to make Zha a great characte...

  7. return return I very much enjoyed Grimwood s Ashraf Bey trilogy, though was a little less convinced by either his earlier redRobe or hisrecent Stamping Butterflies I m glad to report IMHO a return to form Like the Ashraf Bey trilogy this is essentially a police procedural in a somewhat alternative history version of a famous port city with distint sfnal overtones to do with technological brain enhancements So we have identified what he does wel return return I very much enjoyed Grimwood s Ashraf Bey trilogy, though was a little less convinced by either his earlier redRobe or hisrecent Stamping Butterflies I m glad to report IMHO a return to form Like the Ashraf Bey trilogy this is essentially a police procedural in a somewhat alternative history version of a famous port city with distint sfnal overtones to do with technological brain enhancements So we have identified what he does well, then return return This time the city is San Francisco, however, and the central character is killed on page 30 only to wake up, like Corwin in Nine Princes in Amber, in a hospital in upstate New York and he spends the rest of the book solving his own murder The basic plot has of course been done before, but I love Grimwood s intense and often sultry writing style an...

The fox was pure white and carried its tail high and curled like flame over its back Its eyes were red as coals, fierce with anger White canines showed on either side of its mouth Jinwei hu, said Bobby.The fox nodded, even though Bobby had only said the name in his head Somewhere on Grant Avenue a kid let off a string of firecrackers left over from the night before and the fox grinned....

  9. I adored the Arabesk series start with Pashazade , so when I was wandering through the SF section and saw this novel, I grabbed it I had forgotten he wrote another book I didn t like as much, I only noticed when I looked for the name of that book just now Hunh Anyway This was wonderful sort of a supernatural detective story, set in alternate San Francisco About which I know very little, so if there were geographical problems, I would never have known Has the sort of frenetic feel of I adored the Arabesk series start with Pashazade , so when I was wandering through the SF section and saw this novel, I grabbed it I had forgotten he wrote another book I didn t like as much, I only noticed when I looked for the name of that book just now Hunh Anyway This was wonderful sort of a supernatural detective story, set in alternate San Francisco About which I know very little, so if there were geographical problems, I would never have known Ha...

  10. Cool idea, but kind of a mess in the execution Dead cop must solve his own murder It s kind of noir ish, which I enjoy, but the plot is convoluted even by noir detective standards, and, in the end, I didn t feel like it all made much sense Annoyance our main character is supposed to be kind of a jerk, but he s always having sex and then making sure to tell us that he smells her on his fingers Not sure what the author was aiming at here, but it comes across as frat boyish Major distractio Cool idea, but kind of a mess in the...
