The Quartz (The Inspector Kwong Mysteries Book 1)
Vic Warren, author
The Quartz is the first in a new series called The Inspector Kwong Mysteries, based on characters from Vic Warren’s novel, Hong Kong Blues. The Quartz is not a whodunnit. It tracks the action in Hong Kong and Beijing of both Chief Inspector Lawrence Kwong and the villain, Vice Premier Xiao Mingyu, the fourth most powerful man in the People’s Republic of China. Twists and turns along the way bring them face to face with each other. The McGuffin of the piece, the Qin Quartz, is a treasure from the tomb of Emperor Qin, the first Emperor of China.

“Four Stars!

The Quartz by Vic Warren uncovers a fascinating world of high stakes crime and takes a look into political underworlds and the manipulation that crosses between the honest and dishonest in the People's Republic of China. Lawrence Kwong is a hardened professional of the streets of Kwun Tong, and has been dealing with mob violence, kidnappings, and the drug trade since before his new partner could walk. This time it's different, however, and all of his experience may not be enough to get him through the investigation on the most recent case. Vic Warren is bitingly intelligent in this latest novel, and features plots and characters that make you itch for the next book, or at least another book from Warren.  

The character descriptions were great, and once I got a handle on who was who, I really enjoyed the play and interactions that went on between everyone. Vic Warren is a skilled writer, and his simple prose and quick dialogue never let the plot drag or take focus off the characters. I found myself invested in the story after only a few chapters, and at the conclusion I was left wishing there was more. Luckily, Warren is quite prolific so there are many more books out there to explore.”
