A solid, entertaining read. The MC has a wonderfully wry, self-deprecating way of looking at his pampered life as a crime lord's kept man. As things heat up in the race to find the porcelain dog, Ira finds himself knee deep in opium lords and evil doctors - murder and mayhem ensues! There is no onscreen sex and no HEA as such but the ending is satisfying.
I'll definitely be reading more of Jess Faraday's work.
