China, 1938.
Eighteen-year-old Rosalie Gilder flees Nazi-occupied Austria with her younger brother. Hidden among their belongings are a few precious family heirlooms, their only protection against the hard times that await them as they join Shanghai's growing population of Jewish refugees.

New York, present day. Chinese-American detective Lydia Chin is hired by an old friend to investigate the recent theft of a cache of holocaust assets, thought to once belong to the Gilders.

However, before she makes much headway, her friend is shot dead. Neither Lydia nor her partner, Bill, believe the NYPD's theory that his death was a robbery gone bad. Both fear they are no longer looking for a thief but a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to reclaim the past...

Please note: this novel was originally published in the US as THE SHANGHAI MOON

"Nobody nails New York like SJ Rozan. Finally, we get to discover American crime writing's best-kept secret. I've loved Lydia Chin and Bill Smith for years and I guarantee you will too."
Val McDermid

"One of my favourite crime writers...S.J. Rozan can write sentences that make my jaw literally drop. She's as good a prose stylist as I've seen in a long, long time read S.J. Rozan is to experience the kind of pure pleasure that only a master can deliver"

"Rozan paints with the full palette of the human heart, using a depth, detail, and nuance of character I haven't seen since Chandler"

"Two of my favourite characters in crime fiction, Bill Smith and Lydia Chin"
Linda Fairstein

"Using letters and journal entries from the 1930s and 1940s, Rozan sets the stage for the modern quest for missing valuables stolen during the Holocaust. She also gives us a brilliant look into the culture of Chinese American families today and an exciting mystery. Readers who have waited patiently for this one will not be disappointed. Highly recommended."
