22gigantes.com - Attorney Quinn Jones is in over her head. Her husband, Jordan Chang, Annapolis grad and superstar businessman, has been found dead outside their Greenwich Village brownstone. He's wearing clothes that aren't his, and was last seen at a place he never went while consorting with people he shouldn't--and he's vastly richer than he ought to be, Quinn discovers. Since NYPD has labeled Jordan's death a suicide, Quinn is on her own to uncover the truth. Courtrooms, Quinn knows. Chanel No. 5, horses, martial arts, and frizzy hair, she knows. Murder, she doesn't know but she's learning fast in order to stay alive. With a few clues to work with, including a photo of Jordan with a stunning unknown Asian woman and a copy of a 1986 check payable to Jordan for twelve million dollars, Quinn stalks the back streets of Chinatown, haunted by the need to know what happened that day and why.

Good Reading By Cherokee Randolph The Rage of Plum BlossomsA well written mystery and one with a fairly convincing plot. These are things I look for in reading-for-entertainment and find all too rarely. Having said that, I find myself wondering why I found it as entertaining as I did.I believe it was because I actually liked the characters, in spite of the fact that the circumstances of their lives are very different from mine and not the sort that I desire at this point in my life. It occurs to me that they are people who would have attracted me more when I was younger, when the very fact of being affluent, of a certain kind of life-style which appeared to be ‘sophisticated’, seemed to promise something I very much desired but could not name. I now think that elusive ‘something’ is what they call ‘glamour’.It was their individual enthusiasms which made them attractive, even though only two of them had a particular enthusiasm with which I could identify (a serious capability in a difficult foreign language). The primary commonality between the protagonist and one major character was a passionate interest in perfumes and gossiping about clothes. Another character was an ex-cop who was passionately interested in the mystery. The mystery brought them all together, but (apart from not even a shadow of financial stress) they had nothing else in common as a group. They liked each other, but the group they formed lacked any kind of ‘political correctness’. The lack of any form of political correctness is a vision of social life that has always been elusive for me, but seems to have disappeared entirely in the past few decades. The contrary vision was actually referred to, in one of its forms, in this book when one of the characters referred to the ‘rule’ of ‘never wearing white after labor day’. My mother’s insistence on that rule has horrified me to this day.The book held my attention throughout, and only faltered a little when the description of Halloween costumes went on longer than I liked and began to feel just a little too silly. By and large, this is one of the two best mysteries I have read in years. 30 of 30 people found the following review helpful. Love Transcends Death By DrPat The only reviewers making fun of this Kindle-Scout-selected novel's title will be either cold-hearted anti-romantics, or those who have not read it. Rage is a normal response when your world has been irretrievably upset, and Quinn Jones Chang has lost not only her husband, but her best friend, her true love, and her sense of place in the community, all at the same time. It does not help that her husband's family and his best friend "from the womb" Harry Chin all believe, like the police, that Jordan Chang committed suicide by diving head-first from their second-floor balcony.Like the plum, Quinn will persist through the chill of this emotional winter. She will find support from a strange variety of new friends and continue—despite threatenting emails and near-fatal "accidents"—to seek the real reason her husband died, to find his murderers, to blossom in the midst of this icy disaster.By the way, guys, I offer a warning. This is a novel that drove me to tears, not once, but several times. If you are in a deep relationship, the evocative way Whitehead describes Quinn's loss may overturn your emotions as well. Fathers (and mothers) will also find tear-jerking moments in the story.There is power in evoking tears, and power in the persistence of Quinn and her posse. It is the power of plum blossoms to promise the triumph of spring in late winter. It is the power of love that transcends death. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Very well written; an excellent read. By J. Hughes Whitehead hooked me from the very beginning of the book; I especially enjoyed the description of Quinn meeting her magnificent husband Jordan and the life they shared. He was fascinating, someone I would enjoy knowing. Her three plum blossoms were very nicely drawn, as were Harry and Jordan's parents. Sam at the ending was a bit of a surprise, but a very nice one. I wouldn't have wished his claws-out catty ex-girlfriend on any good person.I've ordered the first book in the series, "Tell Me When It Hurts." If it's nearly as good as this one, I'll be waiting for her third novel. See all 270 customer reviews...

Whitehead is a fun, mainstream mystery that includes entertaining dialogue and vivid scene descriptions. The characters are realistic with their diverse attitudes and unique personal qualities.

The Rage of Plum Blossoms is recommended. ed by Midwestern Book An original and riveting mystery in which Christine Whitehead showcases a genuine flair for deftly crafting memorable characters and compelling twists and turns. ed by e-tasana-williams for On-Line BookThis is a great book. It has the feel of a cozy mystery but is edgier. The characters are realistic and well developed. To top it off, Ms. Whitehead manages to inject humor into what could otherwise be a somber tale. The Rage of Plum Blossoms is a smooth read, and it is well-edited with fun dialogue and deep character development to carry the plot forward. 4 out of 4 stars. Runningrabbit for The Library ThingIt's a wild ride as Quinn & her band of merry men race around Manhattan & Chinatown to uncover what Jordan was up to. An entertaining mystery full of witty dialogue, engaging characters & a clash of cultures. The twists come at you like a hail storm as the author delivers suspense mixed with humor. At the heart of all the mayhem is Quinn, a resourceful woman who just wants the truth. She's the kind of gal pal we'd all love to have.It's a book that that doesn't take itself too seriously & fits loosely into several genres.....romantic suspense, humor, chicklit. But whatever box you want to stuff it in, you'll still end up with a fast paced & entertaining read. (four stars of 4 )Luxury Reading, by Holly MadisonI really enjoyed reading this book. It drew me in from the very first page, and continued to captivate me throughout. The pace was perfect, the writing was beautiful, and the story was a compelling mystery-a genre I don't typically read, but very much enjoyed From the Author I get my best ideas in the barn as I groom my thoroughbred, Nifty. The dogs keep a careful distance as I lift a hoof, scrape it out, then move on to the next one. The repetition soothes me. I begin to dream of women on the edge, women like me, restless women who still want to trust that love can last, and that being sentimental sometimes is not contemptible, and that good men are not so hard to find if you keep slogging along, seeking a melody to fit your words. So that's who and what I write about: restless women searching. Please slog along with us. From the Back Cover Quinn Jones, Manhattan divorce attorney, thinks marriage doesn't suit her until she meets Jordan Chang, Annapolis grad and all-around perfect man. However, after just six years of marriage, Jordan is found dead at their Greenwich Village brownstone with the NYPD claiming it's suicide. Then Quinn learns that her boy scout of a husband, at the time of his death, was wearing clothes that weren't his, was last seen consorting with people he shouldn't, is richer than he ought to be, and has a secret safe deposit box containing questionable photos and a copy of a twelve million dollar check, origin unknown. Driven to learn the truth, Quinn stalks the back streets of Chinatown, haunted by the need to know what happened that day and why.
