Vivien Chien’s Lana Lee returns for Killer Kung Pao, another delectable cozy set in a Chinese restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio!
Is life at the Ho-Lee Noodle House becoming too hot to handle?
Lana Lee’s plate is already plenty full. Running her family’s Chinese restaurant in Cleveland’s Asia Village is challenging on the best of days. But just when Lana thinks she might be able to catch her breath before the weekend–which she’s eager to spend with her equally overworked boyfriend, Detective Adam Trudeau–Lana witnesses a car accident in the parking lot. And now she has no choice but to get involved.
June Yi, of Yi’s Tea and Bakery, is a serious businesswoman well-known for her heartlessness. But June meets her match when she rear-ends the Cadillac belonging to Mah Jong lover Mildred “Millie” Mao. As each woman curses–and threatens–the other, it becomes clear to Lana that trouble lies ahead. Still, who could have imagined that Millie would end up dead at the beauty salon? The evidence suggests that she was electrocuted while having a foot bath, and all eyes are on June. Can Lana find a way to solve this case before another fatality occurs in Asia Village?

Thank you always to the following people:
My terrific agent, Gail Fortune, without whom I’d be lost; my amazing editor, Nettie Finn, who is invested in this journey as much as I am. I am so looking forward to the adventures ahead of us. To the fabulous Kayla Janas, Allison Ziegler, and Mary Ann Lasher, who make this series continue to shine; and to my publisher, St. Martin’s Paperbacks, for having continual faith in my writing abilities. Your support and dedication to this series have been paramount. I am beyond fortunate to have such a wonderful team.
To Sisters in Crime, both locally and nationally, for all you provide to women in the mystery genre. And to the Crime Writers of Color for helping so many who felt misplaced finally feel like they have a home and a voice.
To my dad, Paul Corrao, who never stops believing in me; my mother, Chin Mei Chien, and my sister, Shu-Hui Wills. To the late Effie Corrao who I continue to miss on a daily basis. They have all in their own ways guided me through this wacky thing called life. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without their influence and guidance.
To my amazing friends and family who keep the cheerleading and positivity flowing. I can’t thank you enough.
To my readers, whose enthusiasm and encouragement to keep this series going mean more to me than words can express.
