Nicely written although gory. This book takes you into the depths of San Francisco's Chinatown. Likable, well developed characters. Good handling of most vulgarities. Some unrealistic ideas.
The petite Chinese FBI agent Abby Kane is back for another entertaining mystery. That is a very good thing for us and a reason for those unfamiliar with Ty Hutchinson to get on board reading this fine author.Russian Hill refers to a San Francisco neighborhood. Most of this story takes place in Chinatown where Abby and a SFPD detective team up to solve an apparent series of serial killer murders. I particularly enjoy the continuous action whether it be on the job or at home with her kids and Po P [...]
I'm a huge fan of Ty Hutchinson's books. This one does not disappoint. The story not only brings you in but the characters are entertaining. If you liked the Darby books then you'll like these.Have you ever wondered if there are interactive games online for people that may not be the most upstanding citizens? Maybe even a site that sends people on a murderous scavenger hunt of sorts? Well, this book may in fact make that seem much more likely. Abby Kane is on a case trying to catch a pair of cat [...]

Not quite so stereotypical. Main character could be better written but not as terrible as some. Again, enjoyed because I am familiar with the geographical area which adds to the ability to "see" the story.
This is the first book in the three part Chasing Chinatown series, beginning in San Francisco.Is there a connection between a case the SFPD is investigating and the death of a hiker. FBI Agent believes there is and joins forces with Kang to find the killer.
Excellent Lady Cop book. The plot is intricate and the people interesting -- all of them. Ty Hutchinson definitely goes on my Buy Next Book author list.

This book is a great continuance to a fast-paced thriller series. I actually read the books a little out of order, this is the 4th book I have read in this series. I read Kowloon Bay, now called #6, third and then circled back to this one as the fourth book. Russian Hill is the first book in the Chasing Chinatown trilogy, which is a trilogy inside the larger series. I actually am pleased with the order in which I read them because I gained so much additional insight into Abby and her deceased hu [...]
2.5 STARSLet’s start with the positive. The writing style is very comfortable, which makes it a fast and easy read.However…The character development could have been better. There were hints about the past which weren’t explained. An argument can be made that this is the first in a series, but it doesn’t sit well with me, especially when the second book may be read years after the first.My biggest problem with this book was the story, which is a pity. It wasn’t a bad story, but it was m [...]
The Game is Murder This first novel in a trilogy starts with a couple celebrating the fun they had that day in and around San Francisco. As they download the pictures and videos they took in Muir Woods with a young woman they just met that day, you realize things are definitely not what they seem.FBI Agent Abby Kane is assigned to a murder case involving a body found in Muir Woods. San Francisco detectives Kyle Kang and Pete Sokolov are investigating two unusual murders of their own and suspect [...]
I've seen people playing Pokemon watching their cell phones as they roam around a mall or park. I have not played it myself. As this book progressed, I had the impression that a computer game was being played, and it was something like Pokemon except you killed real people to play the game, not just on the game, and uploaded photos of your deeds, scored points, and did it all over again in another city. Where did the money come from to support their lifestyle? I did not figure that out. The FBI [...]
This is a really good fast paced crime thriller that throws in a nice little twist of an internet game guiding serial killers and setting them competing against each other. The kills are grusome and inventive, as is the idea of the game itself. I will admit though that I did find Abby Kane a little annoying, or flat, or shallow, there was something about her that I didn't get on with. I can't quite put my finger on what but there were a few moments when I found myself mentally (and physically) r [...]
Sometimes, when a book relies heavily on its setting to work, it can be pretty dull, but thankfully this was not one of those books. San Francisco was about as much of a character as any of the humans, it seemed. It took a few chapters to get into it, but once I did I was really hooked. It must be stories about games that do it for me. I also liked having so many chapters from Vicki and Jerry's point of view. They were terrible, but fascinating to read about, and it was a great change of pace, n [...]
It was good to see an FBI agent and a Police detective getting along for a change. Sometimes there is so much bickering going on, it takes away from the story. Abby Kane is the FBI agent and Kyle Lang is the SF police detective. The two nut cases they are trying to catch would give any sane person grave nightmares.Ty Hutchinson does a fine job of bringing his characters to life. I'm definitely going to be reading more of the Abby Kane books.
As much as i hate book serials that leave stories open ended at the end of each "book", this one does a good job finding a way of doing it while still resolving the main crime that's the focus of the book. Here we have a chinese fbi agent teamed with a chinese police detective trying to solve a serial murder in san francisco. They do so, only to find something bigger is behind it all. So, it was an ok book. Not spell binding, but it kept me reading.
PageturnerThis is the first book I have ever read by Ty Hutchinson, but it will not be the last. This book is a real page turner, the two main characters Abby and Kane blend well together to provide humour and action. The plot behind the story is realistic. I would recommend this book to all.
This book was a great page turner! Abby certainly is a sure fire kick butt take names girl. Still hoping her love life will pick up. Great descriptions of food and places, as reading this book when your hungry lays it on thick sometimes. :)
FascinatingA computer game for serial killers with clues they have to find and a kill to leave behind. I found this imaginative read and disturbing end. It is a complete novel but you can continue with the story in part 2. Worth a read as well written.
Very well written book that had my attention the whole way through. I would definitely recommend if you are interested in serial killer books that have a gruesome twist. Very likable and realistic characters
I throughly enjoyed this FBI thriller. Abby Kane is a great character who I'm keen to learn more about. Serial killers have long been a favourite of mine and they were put to good use here. I shall certainly be reading more of this series and discovering more of this authors books.
Nice, easy, light, quick read. Good for an afternoon or two at best.
Suspenseful, and thrilling. Yes now I have to read the 2nd and 3rd books in the series. However I like Abby Kane and need to read the first book with Abby. It kept me turning the pages
Good read thrillerWow, who comes up with this stuff? This was a fast read. Loved the main characters. Funny and gruesome at the same time.
GreatLots of action. Great interplay between the characters. Kept me on the edge of my seat. Looking forward to the next book.
Eish, dis die Chinatown trilogy binne-in die Abby Kane reeks? Was 'n goeie boek, maar nie goed genoeg om die res van die reeks te lees nie.
totally enjoyed this even though I read it out of sequence. now to go back from the start
An intriguing startAn excellent mystery/thriller to begin a trillegy. This first in the series will keep you on the edge of your seat
