I have had to re review as I never meant it to be a 1 * review.
As a new reader of Inspector Zhang I wasn't sure but they had me gripped from the start, more please. Ideal Christmas prezzie for friends that like short stories and I shouldn't start reading when I wake up because it means I'm late for work but so worth it!
I'm a 'Zhang' fan!

Review by: Eric J. Gates on Jan. 31, 2013 :
Finally in one place, all four of the Inspector Zhang mysteries can be found in this collection. I am a fan of Stephen Leather's work and looked forward to reading these short detective mysteries. The author made the collection available free over the holidays and I jumped at the opportunity.

Inspector Zhang is very different from his iconic Spider character, being a detective on the Singapore police force. He is also a fan of the great detective novels, with a noted predilection for Agatha Christie's Poirot. This collection pits his own little grey cells against four distinct mysteries that challenge the reader to figure out the murderers before the denouement - I managed to 'solve' (read guess) the right result twice. Great fun! Written in Stephen Leather's inimitable style and pace. More please!

Inspector Zhang stories are thrilling and funny and perfect for anyone. And this new boxed set is just in time for the holidays and at a VERY generous price. Come visit with Inspector Zhang and see what he's up to, if you haven't already met him. And, if you have, consider the boxed set as a great gift idea for someone else's Kindle this holiday season. They'll love it.
