Description

The third funny, food-forward mystery by Ed Lin set in and around Taipei's bustling night market Jing-nan has known Peggy Lee, a bullying frenemy who runs her family's huge corporation, since high school. Peggy's father has been kidnapped, and the ransom the kidnappers are demanding is not money but IP: a high-tech memory chip that they want to sell in China. Jing-nan feels sorry for Peggy until she starts blackmailing him into helping out. Peggy is worried the kidnappers' deadline will pass before the police are able to track down the chip. But when the reluctant Jing-nan tries to help, he finds himself deeper and deeper in trouble with some very unsavory characters-the most unsavory of whom might very well be the victim himself.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Ewan Chung gives a talented performance of the many characters that appear in this audiobook. Jing-nan is an antihero who prefers owning a night cart restaurant in Taipei to owning a brick-and-mortar business with never-ending responsibilities. The billionaire father of Jing-nan's childhood friend, Peggy Lee, has been kidnapped, not for money, but for a computer chip the kidnappers can sell in China. Jing-nan knows danger when he sees it, but Peggy Lee secures his help by blackmailing him. Chung understands the nuances of the characters and keeps them distinct. He demonstrates a stand-up comic's instincts with the humor laced throughout the story. Overall, his presentation imposes balance on this sometimes uneven but unique mystery.
