Death at Chinatown is available. Sept. 1 was the official publication date. One of our favorite review sources is Foreword Review. Their review is available at

There’s also a nice mention at

And the Publishers Weekly review is at Although I think the reviewer is wrong about it being 21st century. Actually the concern for immigration and women’s issues was there at that time. And Wong Chin Foo really was an early Chinese American activist who clearly saw the issues. And there were women like Emily who did manage to have academic careers as well as families. They were unusual, but they existed. Anyhow I appreciate the kind words and hope they will get people to read and enjoy the book.

Death at Chinatown will be released in September

Hyde Park Historical Society meeting March 2

HPHS has asked me to come and talk about Hyde Park in the Emily Cabot mysteries. Of course, Emily is a student at the University of Chicago and lives in Hyde Park, the Fair in the first book is in Hyde Park and apparently Pullman was part of Hyde Park at the time of the strike in DEATH AT PULLMAN. I’ll put together some slides for that talk at 5529 South Lake Park Avenue, from 2-4 pm.
