"An absorbing mystery set in a Hong Kong tourists only glimpse--the dark underside of a money-making beehive trying to find its place in a cynically corrupt new China. Vivid and knowing." --Joseph Kanon, New York Times bestselling author of Istanbul Passage--Joseph Kanon "The incomparable Jan-Philipp Sendker immerses us in the complexities of a 'new China, ' entirely different and yet somehow ineluctably the same as the old. At once lyrical and suspenseful, this is a novel that moved me, even as it showed me an unfamiliar world."--Ayelet Waldman "author of Love and Treasure " "A stunning mystery in which a twisted murder investigation pulls back the curtain on a country whose culture and history have been shaped as much by our American capitalism as its own communism. Whispering Shadows is a thoughtful, moving, and profoundly revelatory read. "--Attica Locke "author of Black Water Rising " "When you hear crime novel, you think you know what toexpect. When you hear love story, you might believe you know the outcome. Yet, in Jan-Phillipp Sendker's astonishing new novel, set against the seamy backdropof modern day China, he melds the two to create something so original, thrilling and moving about the things we want, and what we're prepared to do toget them. A murder story was never so ravishing."--Caroline Leavitt "New York Times bestselling author of Is This Tomorrow and Pictures of You " "A darkly beautiful, heart-wrenching portrayal of the Cultural Revolution's devastating social legacy."--Booklist, starred
