Yellowthread Street by William Marshall is the first in a series of hilarious crime fiction set in Hong Kong in the 60’s. The first 3 books in the series have just been republished by Farrago.
Think of Hill Street Blues meets Ed McBain with a touch of Jackie Chan. Yellowthread Street is short, violent and gonzo funny, a good holiday read and probably a series that could be rediscovered and become quite cultish.
3.5 out of 5 but could go up after reading a couple more
