Shanghai Scarlet provides a fascinating evocation of Old Shanghai in all its exhilaration, luxury, degradation and terror. It is a compelling story of love, loss and adventure in the dangerous 1930s Shanghai world of conflicting political regimes and their gangsters, seeking to turn journalists and authors to their own causes. With excellent pacing and extraordinary conclusion, Shanghai Scarlet is sure to appeal to may readers.
