Emily Woo Zeller delivers a terrific narration of Family Business, S.J. Rozan’s newest mystery featuring New York City private eye Lydia Chin and her partner, Bill Smith. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss this complex, fast-paced, and witty story that involves an old building threatened by development, Chinatown’s Tong gang, and the historic preservation society. Zeller shows off her skill with dialogue as she takes a very animated approach with the characters in a story involving family secrets, double-dealing, gunshots, and colorful detail on everything from Chinese desserts to funerals.
