Hong Kong Noir PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Hong Kong Noir free pdf Hong Kong pathologist Feng Chi-shun once owned a dive bar in Kowloon City: a rough part of town which was home to the Sun Yee On triad gang. During that time, he heard a lot of stories. How about the street sleeper who was a millionaire, or the man who chose to end it all in Chungking Mansions? Do you want to know the details of the gruesome Hello kitty murder, or what the taxi driver from hell did to his passengers? How about Elvis of the Orient, the ancient movie star who fooled hundreds of people for his final performance, or the student who stumbled into the 1967 riots and entered the world of girlie bars? And what was the truth about the girl with the eagle tattoo? The 15 stories in Hong Kong Noir offer a glimpse of what happens in the shadows.

About Feng Chi-shun

Feng Chi-shun is a naturalised US citizen, but considers Hong Kong -- where he grew up and attended medical school -- his home. His formative years were spent in Diamond Hill, where people were poor but life was rich. Trained as a pathologist, he has published close to 100 scientific articles on his medical research. He has also been a columnist for the South China Morning Post, the leading English newspaper in Hong Kong. Feeling deprived as a child, he is making up for lost time by living life to its fullest. He is an aficionado of wine and cigars, and a part-time punter attracted to roulette, poker, mah-jong and horse racing.
