*** stars It's Chinese New Year in 1940 San Francisco, and Chinatown is full of celebrants - including Miranda Corbie, a 33-year-old private eye with a colorful past and a hard-boiled point of view. A Japanese male teenager, beaten and shot, dies at her feet. The Chamber of Commerce wants the murder covered up, and the police are happy to forget it, but Miranda wants justice. Her quest takes her through Chinatown’s tenements and herb shops to a tailor in Little Osaka and a high-class bordello. Chain-smoking Chesterfields all the while, Kellie tries to get information from both hoods and cops. Stanley has vividly re-created the atmosphere of the era, using authentic San Francisco landmarks and the Golden Gate International Exposition as background. Her hard-boiled, strong female sleuth stalks Hammett’s San Francisco and does the job with all the panache of Sam Spade. Fun read! Recommend
