  1. Unfortunately, I m with the people who found this a bit of a disappointment In fact, when the email came in asking me to review it maybe a month later , I had forgotten the book entirely couldn t remember buying or reading it or what it was about It made that little impression Having gone back to look at it again, I would describe it as a fairly dry account of the murder of a Canadian model in Shanghai The death was tragic, and this poor review is not intended to slight the impact of that death [...]


  2. I thought this story was largely compelling It starts off very slow with a sudden turn towards a crime investigation, though as the narrative begins and we are taken into Diana s day by day life traveling from home to Shanghai to pursue modeling even though she seemed largely disinterested was interesting What turns from a crime story investigation turns into a commentary on the state of Shanghai urban life, city culture and a critique on its justice system, revealing some dark, seedy stories.Th [...]


  3. This book is a well researched and reasonably well presented story of a young woman who signed with a modeling agency and wound up dead in Shanghai A certain amount of the book focuses on the Chinese legal system, how such a crime is investigated and prosecuted I never really got a sense of who the victim was as a person.


  4. I ordered this book after hearing an interview on CBC Radio There normally wouldn t be much to interest me in this topic The world of fashion models, stories of true crime, or socio economic challenges in modern Shanghai, would not usually appeal to me But I missed the end of the interview and felt the lack, so I looked up the author Her credentials pulitzer prize nominee were stellar, and so I gave this a read out of curiosity.I ended up reading the book in pretty much one sitting I was lured i [...]


  5. This is a very dry and almost uneventful account of a murder in China It is based on fact It involves the inexplicable stabbing of a young Canadian model who travels to China boost her career.The book does a decent job of describing how the Chinese Justice System works You are left with the probability that justice was never really done.What I found difficult to fathom was the attitude of the girl s mother and father They travel to China to try to get facts They seem to have very little emotion [...]


  6. Well recorded, but too shocking to really have enjoyed the book It however gives a clear picture of how China s rapid growth has of a negative effect on the majority of its citizens, especially those it had to rely on most to make this economic miracle a reality the migrant workers It also gave some insight in a very flawed justice system which is also not benefiting the ordinary citizen was he really the murderer This is not the only story of its kind about foreigners paying the ultimate price [...]
