Mandarin Gate by Eliot Pattison review on Mystern Maven Blog

Review excerpt:

“As is typical of Pattison’s prose, the book does not include a single unnecessary description or detail.  The spare prose is beautifully written to explain the elegantly complex plot as simply as possible. Descriptions reveal a lot about each character’s personality and motivations with little extraneous or unnecessary dialog.  This suspense novel is so gripping it is almost impossible to put down.  The reader is made to feel as if they have stepped inside a remote Tibetan detention center or a farm house headquarters of the Jade Crows and are ducking punches right along with Shan.  The descriptions in “Mandarin Gate” become vividly real.”
