Tales of ChinatowneBook - 2014
Tales of Chinatown is a collection of ten stories by Rohmer. Rohmer's stories take place in the Limehouse, a section of London containing Chinatown. Rohmer's Chinatown is full of the mystery and menace of the East. "The superficial inquirer comes away convinced that the romance of the Asiatic district has no existence outside the imaginations of writers of fiction. Yet here lies a secret quarter, as secret and as strange, in its smaller way, as its parent in China which is called the Purple Forbidden City." In the Limehouse you'll find crime, drugs, and Chief Inspector Red Kerry, struggling to keep a lid on this particular pot.
