Don't Cry, Tai Lake (Inspector Chen Cao Series #7)

Don't Cry, Tai Lake - Qiu Xiaolong I love this series about Inspector Chen Cao of the Shanghai police force. As always, there are many insights into the changing nature of modern-day China while it still maintains its Communist system. Inspector Chen is a great character who writes poetry and translates English mysteries into Chinese, as well as solves mysteries. This book had maybe a bit too much poetry for my taste, but I understood why after reading the acknowledgments at the end. Otherwise great!
