Henry Chang uses his background from the streets of New York's Chinatown for the setting of his detective series featuring NYPD detective Jack Yu. This series reads as more of a police procedural style than full hardboiled although it certainly has its moments of stark grit, but the interesting aspects come from the insights into the Chinese-American subculture.
Praise for his books have come from notable publications such as the New York Times Book Review, the Boston Globe and the Washington Post.
