“With lucid prose and a smooth narrative full of historical detail, Levy skillfully evokes the dangers of a San Francisco plagued by fires, murders, and lynchings. Her characters come fully to life, especially Ah Toy, whose struggle for personal freedom is delicately balanced against a desire to adhere to Chinese tradition.”–Publishers Weekly
