Death of a Red Heroin By Qiu Xiaolong

Eh. It was okay.

This is the story of a Poet, assigned to be a Cop, who gets his first ‘big’ case as ‘Chief Inspector’ of the ‘Special Unit’ squad.

I wish it would have focused more on the Case Specifics instead of ‘Politics politics politics’. Not very interesting read. Interesting enough but it was a slow read and seemed bogged down a lot, The Character’s personal life mixing too much with the story about the ‘Case’ he’s trying to solve. It also got bogged down a bit with the Secondary Characters past – Detective Yu. Some of it I could see as leading the story forward, but most of it, meh.
