This book is the first in the series of Detective Alan Wang Mysteries. Alan Wang is an eighteen-year-old football player, the largest on the team as they play the final game of the year against their greatest rival. A tragedy at the end of the game sets the stage for a life-long relationship between Wang and his best friend, Bobby Lee Weaver.
The story jumps to the anniversary of Wang's fifteenth year as a homicide cop for the San Francisco Police Department. During his annual vacation in Arizona, he helps a friend solve a horse rustling operation.
Back in the city, he is joined by his new partner, a fiery Irish lass, Rebecca Quinn. They are quickly embroiled in a series of murders, kidnappings and counterfeiting which introduces the big detective to his nemesis for some time to come.

Detective Alan Wang seems like a cross between an innocent Forrest Gump and a clever, young Charlie Chan on steroids with a husky Samoan-strand thrown in for good measure. Don’t get caught between Wang and a hearty breakfast, it could get ugly. Not your usual homicide detective. Likable characters and well-written prose make this a fun read.

I loved it! Characters are described in great detail so you feel a connection with them. They are introduced to the story as it unfolds so the flow is not lost. The author brought you right into the drama and made you connect with the adventure Detective Alan Wang was on, while keeping the suspense just out of reach....a real page-turner. Can't wait for the sequel!
I fully enjoyed reading both the Alan Wang Mysteries to date, and I am looking forward to #3. They are well written and I enjoyed meeting each new character as they came along. I look forward to the next book in the series!!
