My first exposure to John Ball was the movie "In the Heat of the Night" starring Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger. I enjoyed the way John Ball dealt with hot issues of the sixties. 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.

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?
