From Library Journal
Published in 1984, 1981, and 1982, respectively, these novels feature action, intrigue, violence, and murder. In the Hitchcock vein, they also portray protagonists who are just ordinary people?a professor, an architect, and a fishing-boat captain?who are dragged into extraordinary circumstances. LJ's reviewer found Death in China "tautly written," adding that Montalbano and Hiaasen have a "fine flair for characters and settings" (LJ 4/1/84).

The plot is engaging, the setting and ancient history intriguing and it all adds up to great summer or vacation reading.Published 9 months ago by Cathy
Lots of action, suspense, and mystery. A good read, well written. Not a "can't put it down", so only 4 stars. Read morePublished on April 20 2004 by S. Robins
