The Night Tiger

Of course I wanted to read The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo since Reese picked it for her Sunshine Book Club. It’s the story of Ji Lin who is helping her mother work off a mahjong debt by working at a dressmaker and a dance studio. One of Ji Lin’s dance partners accidentally drops a vial with a finger in it and Ji Len tries to figure out where the finger came from. At the same time, Ren has been told by the doctor he works for that he needs to reunite his severed finger with his body after his death. These are the alternating stories we learn as we read. While I didn’t love this one, it picked up as it went and I found myself enjoying it more and more as it got closer to the end. Overall, though, it would not be one of my best reads so far this year.
