Author Henry Chang will discuss and read from his latest novel, Lucky, the fifth book in his Detective Jack Yu crime fiction series.
Chinatown gang leader “Lucky” Louie is shot outside of a Chinatown off track betting establishment on the thirteenth of January, laying in a coma for 88 days, and awakens on Easter Sunday. The number 88 is a double-helix, double-lucky Chinese number; religion and superstition all lean Lucky’s way. But NYPD Detective Jack Yu, Lucky’s boyhood blood brother, fears his friend’s luck is about to run out. When Lucky embarks on a complex and daring series of crimes against the Chinatown criminal underground, Jack races to stop him before his enemies do so - permanently.
Copies of Lucky will be available for sale and autograph.
