I haven’t plowed through a book so voraciously in a very long time. Ray’s descriptions of the streets of Ha Noi and northwestern Viet Nam were spot on and immediately transported me back to the days when I lived there, so much so that I had to remind myself that the book was a work of fiction. Hanoi Jane’s fast paced plot is very well written and a real page turner. I highly recommend reading this book, even if you don’t have a connection to Viet Nam. I look forward to reading more of Ray’s work very soon!
