Tales of Chinatown

by Sax Rohmer

These mysteries arent difficult to solve. The only people in the stories are the detective, the victim and the villains. No bother with any red herrings here. The stories are remarkable for shameless racism and hatred of the Chinese. If a Chinese person didnt happen to do it and is killed, it is seen as justified capital punishment without the expensive red tape of a trial. All the Chinese are sneaky caricatures in this writer's world. If it werent for the peek through the window into the prejudice of another era, these would be of no interest to me. The term 'oppression document' might well have been coined to describe this book.
