Tales of Chinatown
If you're in the mood for a collection of engaging and well-wrought detective and mystery stories with a stout dose of local color thrown in, Tales of Chinatown from British author Sax Rohmer, the creator of the Fu Manchu series, will definitely fit the bill. These tales are largely set in and around London's Chinatown, and each mystery exposes a different element of the famed enclave's seedy underbelly.
