Here’s a first for SFFaudio, a recent arrival that is neither an audiobook nor an audio drama!
I won this gorgeous hardcover paperbook courtesy of a contest run by Paul Bishop of Bish’s Beat blog. He even went to the trouble of wrapping the dust jacket in a Brodart fold on book jacket cover. Sweet! Thanks Bish!
City Of Dragons
By Kelli Stanley
352 Pages [HARDCOVER]
Publisher: Minotaur Books
Published: February 2010
February, 1940. In San Francisco’s Chinatown, fireworks explode as the city celebrates Chinese New Year with a Rice Bowl Party, a three day-and-night carnival designed to raise money and support for China war relief. Miranda Corbie is a 33-year-old private investigator who stumbles upon the fatally shot body of Eddie Takahashi. The Chamber of Commerce wants it covered up. The cops acquiesce. All Miranda wants is justice–whatever it costs. From Chinatown tenements, to a tattered tailor’s shop in Little Osaka, to a high-class bordello draped in Southern Gothic, she shakes down the city–her city–seeking the truth. An outstanding series debut.
Audiobook fans interested in this lovely looking book will have to wait just a bit longer (until April 2010) for the Tantor Media unabridged audiobook version of City Of Dragons as read by Cynthia Holloway. I may do this as a readalong if I can get a review copy.
