Midnight in Peking: How the Murder of a Young Englishwoman Haunted the Last Days of Old China by Paul French
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It helps that I just visited Shanghai and Beijing as I finished this book! But, it's, oh, so sad since it's a real story. China was crooked in 1937. When young and pretty Pamela Werner is found brutally murdered, an investigation ensues, and this book tells the tale of the investigation. So many secrets and mysteries and corrupt officials. So, so, sad for Pamela and her father.
