Earl Norman

The Earl Norman books are becoming extremely rare, and publishers don’t seem to be interested in reprinting the series. The only way some of us may ever have all the stories is for collectors to scan and type the stories into PDF to swap with other collectors. I have already completed PDFs of HANG ME IN HONG KONG and KILL ME IN ROPPONGI. I am working on KILL ME IN YOKOSUKA. If other collectors would do the same for some of the other books, we could eventually have PDFs of all ten books. Why not help? I can be contacted at fadingshadows40@gmail.com

Macao Mayhem

Crown #2. Macao Mayhem by Terry Harknett. Hong Kong is a hot bed of secrets, and a new gang is using prostitutes and call girls to gather information. Senior Superintendent John Crown and his partner, karate champ Chang Po are assigned the case. When a call girl Crown had helped before turns up dead, they quickly discover there may be something bigger in the works. It’s a case that may involve the Chinese and an American diplomat. The investigation takes them from Hong Kong to Macao. This is the second of the three novels featuring the pair of Hong Kong investigators. Although the third novel is the best in the series, this one has a lot of humor, but not so much of the karate action. Still, a fun story with lots of other action.
