This Is A BustBook - 2017?
It's 1976, and New York City is still at war. Vietnam vet Robert Chow returns to a grimy, crime-ridden Manhattan that's more starkly divided than ever before--pitting black against white, native against alien, wealthy against poor. Bitter and broken-down, he accepts a position with the NYPD as the only Chinese-American cop on the Chinatown beat, and the only police officer who can speak Cantonese. But he's basically treated like a token, trotted out for ribbon cuttings and community events. So when an old Chinese woman turns up dead, he isn't surprised when his superiors dismiss his suspicions that this is murder. Now Chow must take take matters into his own hands.
