    2. “Black Karma” is an underbelly tale of life in the Chinatown underworld.Read full review in the 2014/2015 Holiday issue of InD’tale Magazine.

    3. Black Karma, A White Ginger Novel (the second in the series) centers on a Chinese-American ppeople finder, Bai Jong. She's smart, an excellent knife thrower, attractive, independent and rich. This makes for an interesting character that does not have to grovel as a private investigator (PI) for any case just to make ends meet. In fact, her independence gives her a range of choices she can make that most other literary PI's would not have the freedom to make. The first and most intriguing point i [...]

    4. In the follow up novel to "White Ginger," Author Thatcher Robinson takes us back to San Francisco's Chinatown and Souxon ("people finder") Bai Jiang. She and her partner Lee receive a visit from a dodgy San Francisco police detective, who wants to hire Bai to find Daniel Chen, a foreign national who is believed to have been the source of a drug heist gone wrong that led to the death of a cop.Meanwhile, on the home front, Bai's surrogate mother is encouraging her to find a husband, and the prime [...]

    5. Very similar to the Ava Lee series, even down to the lifestyle porn, the hard-boiledness, the intricate extended family, and the flatness of every character that isn't the protagonist. And the titles that do nothing to help me remember the actual story. I started with #2 and am about to read #1.One moment that resonated with me was Bai's light-disguising herself in a business suit in order to resemble every other woman who works in downtown San Francisco which made it jarring when the text refer [...]

    6. After the great first novel, I found myself disappointed with this follow up. Call it a sophomore slump, I guess. The first novel was fun, but this one was just dreary. The mystery wasn't much, and the journey to the solution didn't even make a whole lot of sense, and didn't tie up all of the loose ends. It seemed like Robinson was trying to make some sort of point, but never quite got to it. He seemed to keep getting in his own way.

    7. Not quite as topical as White Ginger (no cameo appearances by pseudonymous state politicians). Nevertheless, a gripping read. Perfect for a plane flight or a beach afternoon.
