I haven't been reading as much the last few years as I spend more time writing, but I just picked up CHINA TRADE by S.J. Rozan and gee was I impressed. I keep looking at these paragraphs where she described New York City, or the wind, or walking across the street for tea. How can she make that so freaking interesting? Her series character is a Chinese-American woman, and the action is cozy-tame, so these are not my normal enjoyable reads. But Ms. Rozan writes so easily and wonderfully, I kept thinking Elmore might have some competition. This was her first novel, I now read, so I have many more to go to study the craft. Anybody else a fan? Do you enjoy her craft as much I do?
