John Dudley Ball (July 8, 1911 – October 15, 1988) was an American writer best known for mystery novels involving the African-American police detective Virgil Tibbs. Tibbs was introduced in the 1965 novel In the Heat of the Night, which won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel from the Mystery Writers of America and was made into an Oscar-winning film of the same name, starring Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger.

Published 1973 by Bantam Books in Toronto, New York.

The body of an elderly Chinese importer of rare jade lies on the carpet of a quietly expensive house in Pasadena, California. In a rough semicircle around his head rest four pieces of jade; protruding from the heart is a fifth-the Ya-Chang ritual knife. Who murdered the importer? Was it Yumeko, the beautiful half-black, half-Japanese girl who lived with him? Johnny Wu, a rich Chinese-American?

  • My first exposure to John Ball was the movie "In the Heat of the Night" starring Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger. I thought it was an excellent movie so when I saw the book on sale for $4.49 with Amazon I read it. Of course, now it's $3.99. I enjoyed the way John Ball dealt with hot issues of the sixties. So, I got a few other books by John Ball.

    "Five Pieces of Jade" is a Virgil Tibbs mystery that has issues involving a mixed race, black/Japanese, woman as well as issues for blacks in the 60s and early 70s. I was amused at his use of words, like negro and oriental, that would get him tarred and feathered by the PC Police now.

    The book was well written and I enjoyed it. Of course, I'm also old enough to remember the 60s.

  • Another great Virgill Tibbs novel - once I have read the first one, I just had to read the rest!

  • This read still stimulates the imagination but was somewhat more difficult to stay with. Still a very good read! Enjoy!
