Although this is third in the series, it is my first, and a welcome find. There's a mcguffin, a valuable computer enhancement, which sparks a kidnapping and murder, but the real enjoyment lies in the time and location -- I don't believe I've read anything like this set in Taiwan. Ed Lin incorporates history, relationship with the Main Land, and interestingly, immigration issues, all exemplified by a great cast of characters. Jing-nan, central protagonist and narrator, owns a food booth in the Ta ...more

"99 Ways To Die" is the third book in the Taipei Night Market series. The background for this novel is Taipei, Taiwan. A mainlander billionaire has been kidnapped, along with one of his company executives. They are thrown in dog crates, and their plight streamed onto the Internet. Jing-nan is the owner/operator of a thriving foodstand in the Night Market - a market that is owned by Tong-tong, the billionaire that was kidnapped. He also went to school with Peggy Lee, the kidnapped man's daughter. ...more

Very quick read. Jumped right into the whole “my father has been kidnapped” tagline right out of the gate; however, this was quickly overshadowed by the obscene amount of backstory you need to even understand the context of this statement. And that is basically the style for this 273 page word prison. There was obviously a lot going on, but I didn’t feel the grip that comes with a true edge-of-your-sear thriller. Maybe my confusion stems from the fact that this novel is labeled as the third book ...more

This is terrific! Who would expect a guy who runs a food stall in a night market to be an amateur detective? Jing-nan is pressured by his old school chum Peggy to help find her father Tong-Tong, who has been kidnapped by a group which wants an electronic memory chip. Sure. Try it- the characters are great, the dialogue often amusing, and you'll learn something about Taiwan. Lin doesn't cut those of us who are not familiar with Taiwan politics any slack but that's not a big part of the story. The ...more

This series keeps getting better. I tore through this one and the plot took a few twists that I never saw coming. Plus the descriptions of food were amazing!
