Review

Rating: 8

Exiled for crimes that are, initially, not detailed, Inspector Shan has more in common with the Tibetans in his work gang. However, his skills and political knowledge lead him to be tasked with investigating a murder when a body dressed in American clothes is found at the site where a road is being constructed. The ending and the nature of the crimes is both unexpected and extremely satisfying. All the different threads relating to the different crimes are neatly tied together and resolved.
