Two S.J. Rozan E-Books for Free

Two of S.J. Rozan's Lydia Chin and Bill Smith ebooks are free on Amazon for the next four days: China Trade and Concourse. I love these books for the New York setting and the wonderful cross-culture story lines. What a fun and practical way to try a new author and find a new great read.

Here's the background for China Trade:

It's a city within a city, of smells, sounds, dark shops, and close-knit families; it's a world all its own.

And in all of New York's Chinatown, there is no one like P.I. Lydia Chin, who has a nose for trouble, a disapproving Chinese mother, and a partner named Bill Smith who's been living above a bar for sixteen years.

Hired to find some precious stolen porcelain, Lydia follows a trail of clues from highbrow art dealers into a world of Chinese gangs.

Suddenly, this case has become as complex as her community itself–and as deadly as a killer on the loose…

You can read an excerpt here.

Here's the description for Concourse:

It flows through the Bronx like a river between banks of faded elegance. And at the end of the avenue called the Grand Concourse is the place people go to die, the Bronx Home for the Aged.

The only trouble is the people dying there are going before their time.

Bill Smith has been hired by an old friend to investigate the brutal killing of a young security guard on the Bronx Home grounds.

Going undercover, Smith wades out into a sea of violence and lies washing up against the old brick building. When a second murder is committed, Smith knows that there's a method to the madness.

With the help of bright, young Chinese-American investigator Lydia Chin, Smith uncovers a web of corruption that's found a home in the Bronx. Now he has to figure out who will die next.
