Mystery & Suspense • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Narrator Daniel York Loh sounds refined and reserved as academic Lao She in this atmospheric twist on the cases of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Lao admiringly recounts the feats of Judge Dee Ren Jie, who is investigating a series of murders of Chinese men in 1920s London--murders the police seem uninterested in solving. Dee has a prodigious intellect and advanced fighting skills, and he's addicted to opium. As Lao finds himself embroiled in the dangerous case, listeners learn about the victims, who aided British soldiers during WWI and who faced persisting racism and xenophobia in England. Loh performs a range of accents for the cast of side characters, from real-life figures Bertrand Russell and Ezra Pound to the thief Jimmy Fingers, and pronounces Chinese names perfectly.
