Picked this book up from my local library on a whim as haven t read any Peter May before. I wasn t aware this was part of a series until adding it to Goodreads. Overall felt the plot was simple but effective, but really enjoyed how the two lead characters were written. As this was the fourth book in the series, can t help but feel that I ve jumped in at the wrong place But liked this enough to want to go back and find the first one. While I am in the midst of a project with a Goodreads friend, reading virtually anything and everything Peter May has written, Quercus US, the publisher, has been re releasing some of his early titles including Snakehead, the 4th in his China series, re released just this month Because I wanted to read this book now, I skipped over books 2 and 3 in the series I will definitely return to them very soon Unlike the action of Firemaker, book 1, Snakehead is set entirely in the United States Margaret Campbell has returned home to the U. S after a few years in China, having found life as an American in China remained difficult and her relationship with Li Yan did not appear to be realistic She has been home for some eighteen months and now works as a forensics chief in Houston So she is front and center when an abandoned tractor trail My 4th book in Peter May s Yan and Campbell series. Certainly as action packed as the others and I could even imagine a particular scene in a baseball stadium, being similar to a James Bond film confrontation. The on off romance is still off. . and on and offwell, you get the picture. IIn the early stages of the story, Li Yan identifies a body as someone he knew I am afraid that stretches the bounds of coincidence a bit thinly for me However, later in the story, he stretches them even thinner by identifying a second person which, in view of the huge numbers we are told are involved, must be nigh on impossible. For the above reason and also because I felt a loss of momentum early in the second half, I didnt enjoy this one as much as the last Nevertheless, I still look forward to reading the next.
