Kurzbeschreibung

5. Januar 2004
His victims are young, beautiful, and viciously mutilated. He says he's the Beijing Ripper. The media and the public are demanding his arrest. But Li Yan, head of Beijing's serious crime squad, can't stop the Beijing Ripper alone. American pathologist Margaret Campbell's autopsy on one of the victims sends shock-waves through the investigation. Then Li begins receiving personal letters from the killer, threatening his life, his family, and his career. Together Li Yan and Margaret must face an unscrupulous foe who could prove to be their deadliest enemy yet. Praise for Chinese Whispers... "Fresh variations on the catch-the-serial-killer within an autocratic society plot...." -Publishers Weekly Peter May is married to writer Janice Hally and lives in France. www.petermay.co.uk

Pressestimmen

'A grisly, gruesome thriller...An accomplished pulse-racer of a novel...This book is more than just a run of the mill whodunit - think Silence of the Lambs crossed with Quincy.' Daily Record on CHINESE WHISPERS Intense and fascinating Good Book Guide on THE FIREMAKER Stunningly original, highly topical and extremely well written Scotland on Sunday on THE FIREMAKER A fascinating series, although this book, with its detailed autopsy of the dismembered victims, is not for those with weak stomachs. The Sunday Telegraph on THE KILLING ROOM 'An intelligently written book, crafted with confident knowledge of the Chinese police system...Well-researched and superbly handled, the unfolding plot is ingenious.' Aberdeen Press and Journal Is the book any good?The answer is a very solid...yes...it's engaging, topical...and certainly qualifies Peter May as a name to watch. Shots A gripping thriller The Mirror on THE FIREMAKER Peter May opens a window on a vision of the modern Chinese political climate ... an interesting collision of a tremendous collision of cultures. The Herald on THE KILLING ROOM A gripping page-turner which combines edge-of-the-seat suspense with a fascinating picture of modern China making its painful transition to a market economy. Irish Independent on THE KILLING ROOM Fast and exciting ... highly topical, this is an entertaining read that will also give its readers food for thought The Irish Times on SNAKEHEAD A spell-binding and frighteningly realistic tale Aberdeen Evening Express (Snakehead) 'Intense thriller with more twists and turns than a rollercoaster...An absolutely brilliant thriller which keeps you hooked throughout. One of those rare unmissable reads which are both spine-chilling and terrifying, you won't want to put it down till the final full-stop! Grizzly and grusome, it is wonderfully written so you cannot help but cheer on the leading character.' Dumfries and Galloway Standard on CHINESE WHISPERS 'Peter May's plot is compelling and the scene-setting takes you into a rapidly changing world.' North Star on CHINESE WHISPERS 'A grisly, gruesome thriller...An accomplished pulse-racer of a novel...This book is more than just a run of the mill whodunit - think Silence of the Lambs crossed with Quincy.'

4.0 von 5 Sternen A thriller which takes you to the edge 16. Januar 2014
Von dianne beckey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This continues to be a thrilling book about Detective Li Yan by author Peter May. It describes the characters well and takes the reader to the edge of frustration as to how the story will turn out. Once again it is set in China and is a wonderfully entertaining way of finding out something about Beijing and China culturally in general. It is a puzzle as to how someone is copycatting Jack the Ripper in every detail of each 'seria'l killing of young women. An entertaining novel.

Von Louis Doyle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Li Yan and Margaret have done it again. This would make a terrific TV series. Peter May transports you to each of his characters places of work. Whether it be the bitter wind swept far north of Scotland, the beautiful countryside and cities of France or Beijing and the wonderful history and culture of China. He is a master storyteller and I am dreading if he decides to kill off any of his literary characters. Cant wait for the new books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen super Chinese serial killer police procedural 17. Oktober 2009
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Chinese authorities try to conceal the serial killings of four prostitutes by the Beijing Ripper, whose methods are reminiscent of the late nineteenth century notorious Victorian psychopath. They actually were somewhat successful until the victim is visiting Chinese American Professor Lynn Pann, in Beijing to show new law enforcement tools using the Mermer brain scan method to the Municipal Police Chief of CID Li Yan.

Li investigates the latest homicide with plenty of superiors watching his every move. He thinks the motive is related the Mermer method. As he begins to follow the clues based on the American finding something about one of her subjects, someone with power is trying to destroy him by denying his American lover's visa renewal, kidnapping their son, arresting his sister for drug trafficking and finally firing Li. As an expert falls from a window, Li works the case unofficially, which in China means illegally.

This is a gripping at times gruesome Ripper police procedural with the freshness being the Communist authorization government interfering in Li's investigation and his romance with his beloved American. The story line is fast-paced on both fronts as Li struggles with ending a serial killer's murder spree while confronting all sorts of assaults on his loved ones from an unknown adversary with a grudge and highly connected. Fans will appreciate this super Chinese serial killer police procedural and seek previous Li Yan cases (see THE FIREMAKER, KILLING ROOM and SNAKEHEAD); especially those in Beijing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dark and Gritty series 9. Juli 2014
Von Miss Mia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Dark, intense series set in China. Has a real sense of place. Wish Peter M. would right more soon. Hard to get these books in US, but worth the effort if you do not mind your mysteries gritty. Appreciate a strong male and female lead, both equally well developed. You care about these characters. Mysteries are well plotted.
