Created by Charles Colyott
"St. Louis... The city with the shittiest excuse for a Chinatown I've ever seen. I like to call it China-street."
RANDALL LEE isn't your typical addition to these pages -- hell, when we first meet him in Changes (2010), he's not a private eye at all -- even if he does act like Spenser on occasion. Hell, he's just a wiseass acupuncturist and Tai Chi master living in St. Louis who's hired by the local cops to act as a translator when a young woman is murdered in a skanky massage parlor in his neighborhood.
And so it goes. In the follow-up, Pressure Point (2013), Randall sticks his nose into an official police investigation when his new friend, Detective John Knox, is brutally assaulted. And in the third, Jianghu (2013), the recent kidnapping of a young local girl finds Randall finally confronting his dark and violent past, and the murder, years earlier, of his young daughter.
Author Charles Colyott lives on a farm in the middle of Nowhere, Illinois with his wife, two daughters, cats, and a herd of llamas and alpacas, and complains that he's "surrounded by so much cuteness" that he finds it difficult to maintain his reputation as a dark and gritty writer.
Contains all three novels.
