Qiu Xiaolong’s latest novel, Shanghai Redemption, takes the protagonist Inspector Chen Cao on new adventures deep inside the Chinese Communist Party. Qiu, who lives in St. Louis but writes trenchantly about contemporary Chinese issues, took inspiration for his latest – the ninth Inspector Chen novel in the series – from the case of Bo Xilai. There’s sex, murder, and a power struggle, all of which illuminate just a little of the opaque world of China’s political elite. Come see why the New York Times calls Qiu “an expert on the more sordid aspects of the Chinese political and legal systems.”
