    The Bone Garden, by Tess Gerritsen, recommended by my mother. I haven't decided yet how much I like it.

    Beautiful English, a series of books in Chinese and English that are full of feel good short stories and anecdotes, with the occasional nightmare fuel. I don't like them, but they're the only English books I can find in Nanjing that aren't annoying bibliographies, and books about art appreciation.
