This is truly a view into the 'interior" of present-day China. Ms See has captured many of the aspects of China's attempt to change from a state-controlled economy to one that allows more individual actions in business. This has been a blessing- small business owners can now market their goods and make a profit from doing so without "Big Brother" looking over their shoulder. Unfortunately, "Big Business" is capable of moving into areas (like the interior of China) that are ill-equiped both in terms of management and in terms of worker safety so that they might make great profits.
This book, and Ms See's others in this series are not available in China. After reading it, it is easy to see that a government that is bent on controlling its populace would feel threatened by such a story.
Ms See tells a good tale in the general area of the mystery story. Her characters are believable (sometimes to the point of being annoying) and capable of generating considerable interest in "what's going to happen next?"
I certainly would recommend this book to a wide range of people: Those who want a "good read" in the mystery story genre, those who want some insight into contemporary China, as well as those who would just like to read a well-written story told be an excellent story-teller.
