“Once again, S. J. Rozan proves why she is the consummate pro. Not only is Paper Son one hell of a detective book, the story also takes on a hidden gem of Southern culture—Chinese history in the Mississippi Delta. Rozan continues to entertain with this wonderful series by taking us deep into the most unexpected and fascinating worlds. I have no doubt she’s walked these Mississippi backroads.” - Ace Atkins, New York Times bestselling author of 'The Sinners' and 'Robert B. Parker’s Old Black Magic'
“Blood and the blues are cooking down on the Delta in the triumphant return of Lydia Chin and Bill Smith. Rozan’s Paper Son is crawfish pie full of surprises served up by this master of the PI genre.” - Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author of 'What You Break'
“S.J. Rozan's charming gumshoe duo Lydia Chin and Bill Smith take a detour down south, entering the evocative world of the Chinese in the Mississippi Delta. Through this narrative, we dive into the rich history of paper sons and Chinese immigrants who first moved to the area after the Civil War, opening grocery stores in African-American communities, and how those ancient tangled roots can turn out to have deadly consequences generations later. Old secrets, racial tensions, the ultimate meaning of family—Rozan weaves these threads together in a compelling narrative with her characteristic moxie and humor. Read this now.” - Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan, author of the international bestselling novel 'Sarong Party Girls'
