"Hong Kong Noir digs below the financial centre's gleaming surface to unearth stories of the city's ghosts and spirits...The stories touch on major points in Hong Kong modern history: the horrors of Japanese occupation, post-war poverty, the economic boom under the British, the city's return to Chinese sovereignty, and the tensions of the 2014 'umbrella movement' occupation of key thoroughfares by pro-democracy activists. What better way to tie together the present and the past--the living and the dead--than through ghost stories?"
--South China Morning Post
