"Dark, gorgeous…feels authentically Chinese and it works like a charm." --Washington Post Book World on A Case of Two CitiesChief Inspector Chen Cao of the Shanghai Police Department is offered a bit of luxury by friends and supporters within the Party - a week's vacation at a luxurious resort near Lake Tai, a week where he can relax, and recover, undisturbed by outside demands or disruptions.

  • I was excited to learn that Qiu Xiaolong had written another Inspector Chen book, so I rushed to purchase Don't Cry Tai Lake and it did not disappoint. I've read all the other of the series and appreciate the development of the characters stories through out. I love the story of Inspector Chen an up and coming cadre who has a degree in English, translates mystery stories for additional funds, writes poetry, is a gourmet, a policeman and cannot seem to get his love life together. Then there is his partner Yu who with his wife Peiqin has struggled to create a better life for themselves and their son.

    In Don't Cry Tai Lake Inspector Chen is given a vacation at an exclusive resort by his mentor Comrade Secretary Zhao. It does,of course, have strings attached. Zhao wants him to prepare a report about the area of Tai Lake in Wuxi.

    This book comes with the usual poetry, descriptions of food and its preparations and the description of what life is like in China. It gives the reader a real look at the problems facing modern China with its rapid expansion of industry and its push to commercialism and the costs involved with it. The beautiful Tai Lake has become polluted and Chen's new friend Shanshan and environmentalist is unpopular because her reports go against the "progress" of the area and are seen as a stumbling block to the regions' productivity and wealth.

    This book does much to continue the story of Inspector Chen and we find him having a moral dilemma of the heart with his concern for Shanshan, the young environmentalist. He also struggles with what he will say to Comrade Secretary Zhao in his report as pollution is a very real problem which effects the health of both the citizens and the environment but it is not a popular problem to be addressed.

    My one disappointment was that Detective Yu and his wife played only a small role in this, but perhaps I can hope that the next in the series will give him a broader focus.

    If you haven't discovered this series, I encourage all to give it a try but start with the first, Death of a Red Heroine.

  • Another great book by Qiu Xiaolong, this time tackling a notorious aspect of the ascent of China among the world's great economic powers: water pollution. Which is not to say that the culinary aspect is being neglected: once again, the author demonstrates his fascination with food of all kings and his delight at describing dishes at length; and it goes without saying that we are regaled, as always, with appropriate passages from classical Chinese poetry. The story line is, for once, rather straightforward, but the devil is in the details, and the story ends up more suspenseful than most of his six previous Inspector Chen novels. Great writing, attention to cultural details of all kinds, a real gift for descriptions, for personal details and minute observations, and for the uneasy coexistence of modern China and the farming culture that was part of almost very Chinese until very recently are hallmarks of Mr. Xiaolong's work and are very much in evidence here. The moral evolution of the main character is now becoming a focus point, as he rises steadily through the police department and party apparatus, leading this reader to await the next Inspector Chen novel with some trepidation.

  • In a Law and Order episode, the cops rapidly jump to conclusions, often arresting the wrong person, once or twice before they arrest the actual culprit. In an Inspector Chen mystery, Chief Inspector Chen is maddeningly unwilling to draw any conclusions despite the abundance of clues. Perhaps it is because in a highly political environment decontrolled by conflicting ideologies, facts are easily ignored unless they support the desired outcome. In every case he must do his job despite the counter efforts of the Internal Security police, a sort of FBI/CIA organization that is also shadowing Chen. In the end, of course, he figures everything out in his careful way.

    In this story Chen's case is about a murder, but also about the pollution of lakes in China. Chemical companies are dumping waste. In the US we had the same problem but have instituted regulations. In the 1990's when this story is set there is no Chinese EPA. Chen has been loveless for a while. His devotion to his job makes it impossible for him to have a relationship. He does have a fling in this episode but alas it doesn't work out to be lasting. His old girlfriend Ling doesn't appear in this book. Yu and his wife appear briefly in the story and are turning into a pair of Mr. And Mrs. Smith characters.
