Giveaway: Skeleton Women by Mingmei Yip

Today the generous Mingmei Yip is offering a giveaway of her brand new, just released book Skeleton Women. This book sounds really good!

About Skeleton Women:

Skeleton Women, is a Chinese phrase for femme fatales. My story is about three of them — Camilla, the nightclub singer who has been forced to become a spy, Shadow the magician who jumps naked off a tall building, and a gender-ambiguous gossip columnist. All must scheme in order to survive the gang wars in lawless 1930ies Shanghai.

The protagonist Camilla’s mission is to seduce Shanghai’s most powerful crime lord and see that he is assassinated. But then she fell for the gang lord’s handsome, refined son and his hunky bodyguard…

    I am most interested in the woman who becomes a spy. I love Shanghai!I want to go back. It has an incredible and unqiue history. Happy to hear that you play the qin. I used to take lessons but can’t find a teacher or afford it anymore.
