Don't be put off by the "Bridget Jones meets Val McDermid" puff on the cover; whatever that unlikely hybrid may be, Paper Butterfly is not it. Rather, the second novel in Liang's series featuring PI Mei Wang is a deftly crafted journey into the heart of modern-day China.

Great read. I love how much you learn about modern day China. Especially what it's like in rural areas.

This is the second book by this author that I have read and thoroughly enjoyed. Ms. Liang writes beautifully. Her prose is sometimes almost poetic. I am hoping Mei Wang continues with her investigations and returns to us very soon.

My first read of Mei Wang's mysteries by Diane Wei Liang. I liked the book cover and since I have enjoyed stories that take place in China by other authors before this book, I decided to read "Paper Butterfly". I understand this book is one of a series of Mei Wang mysteries. Although I don't know Mei's history I gathered it by small snippets throughout the book. Mei's father was in a labor camp because of his rebellious actions against Communist China.
The story is modern-day China (from 1989 to early 1990's) and tells of a different society and young people's wants and interest.
Mei is a detective although hiding it behind a consulting company. The government has strict rules for detective businesses and although China has progressed, somewhere in the story I got a sense that women were still the second-class citizen (like so many countries.)

The story begins with a man named Lin who is in Gansu Province work camp. He was sentenced at 20 years of age for his role in revolting against the government. It's brutally graphic about how he is treated and immediately my heart went out to him. After his eight year sentence he is free. But is he really? Lin has lost so much; his family, his love, education and friends.

Next we meet Mei who is hired by a president of a record company to find one of his upcoming pop singer named Kaili. Kaili has disappeared and she is known to be moody, into drugs and a bit of a diva, but never missing this long - several days when Mei took the case. The police think Kaili's disappearance is related to robbery. Mei isn't sold on that idea and begins to search into the troubled singer's past.

We learn about Mei's own family problems with her mother and star acting sister, a failed romance and her tenacity to discover the truth.
Meanwhile we follow Lin's journey as a free man as he travels home.

I was not disappointed in Ms. Liang's writing. The Chinese write in poetic and strong images. I could see, taste, smell and touch all. At times I'd get so lost in the beautiful descriptions of places, people and food, I'd forget we, the reader, was included in a mystery.
"Paper Butterfly" is not a happy go lucky, or happy ending story but it is life, which has good things happening, sad and unhappy experiences and conclusions too. That's part of the beauty of this story.
I did have a bit of a time keeping names and places correct and at times, wanted more about Kaili, Line and Mei. But, I understand the story had to move along and it did.
The story is about a modern-day female in a country of historically old traditions. It is a thoroughly enjoyable detective mystery mixed with a culture and people struggling to come into a new time. I truly enjoyed the story and will read more of Ms. Liang's stories happily.

Paper Butterfly is the second novel in the Mei Wang series written by Diane Wei Liang. Liang was born in Beijing of parents who were consigned to a remote labor camp during part of her childhood. In 1989, she was involved in the protest in Tiananmen Square. Those two experiences provided her with insider knowledge put to good use in Paper Butterfly.

The story begins with Lin, sentenced to eight years in a work camp in Gansu Province at the age of twenty due to betrayal by a childhood friend. His time at the camp cost him his youth, his sweetheart, and almost cost him his life.

The president of a record company hired Mei to find a rising pop star who has gone missing. Kaili had disappeared for several days when Mei agreed to a discreet search into the troubled singer's life. Although the police think her disappearance was related to robbery, Mei began to search into Kaili's past.

After Kaili was found dead, Mei was dismissed from the case. Unable to let go of Kaili's life, Mei decided to continue on her own. She soon found herself receiving threats and her life at risk. Ultimately she found the past violently colliding with the present.

In Paper Butterfly, the author shows how once one's course is set, it is almost impossible to return to the old way of life. Liang writes with poignancy, drawing on the sights, sounds, and smell of a city teeming with life. She has created a modern day female detective struggling with a mix of the new ways and the old traditions of her family. This unique mixture together with Liang's life experiences combine genuine mystery and mystique into one thoroughly enjoyable story.
