Stars on Stars for THE NIGHT TIGER

New York Times bestselling author Yangsze Choo transports us to 1930s colonial Malaysia in THE NIGHT TIGER, which just received its THIRD starred review!

Astoundingly captivating and striking in its portrayal of love, betrayal, and death, THE NIGHT TIGER is a transcendent story of courage and connection.”
Booklist, starred review

“Mythical creatures, conversations with the dead, lucky numbers, Confucian virtues, and forbidden love provide the backdrop for Choo’s superb murder mystery. Mining the rich setting of colonial Malaysia, Choo wonderfully combines a Holmes-esque plot with Chinese lore.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Choo weaves her research in with a feather-light touch, and readers will be so caught up in the natural and supernatural intrigue that the serious themes here about colonialism and power dynamics, about gender and class, are absorbed with equal delicacy. Choo has written a sumptuous garden maze of a novel that immerses readers in a complex, vanished world.Kirkus Reviews, starred review
