I finally got around to reading the SJ Rozan novel, REFLECTING THE SKY (2001). This one features her PI duo, Lydia Chin and Bill Smith, operating in exotic Hong Kong. The narrative is told from Lydia's First Person POV. The cigarette-smoking Bill is the hardboiled character and he gets in a few hb lines. The book's strengths, IMHO, are the lyrical descriptions, good plotting, and credible characterization. The details about Hong Kong setting are interesting.

I understand the Bill Smith series uses a more hardboiled voice.
 Any comments/reactions are welcomed.
