"CHINESE COOKING FOR DIAMOND THIEVES is a road-tripping love story spiced with snappy repartee and a dash of running-for-your-life, told by a memorable narrator who never picks up strangers at a highway rest stop -- unless they speak Mandarin. An enjoyable, witty, comic adventure that will also make you very, very hungry."
--Kristina Riggle, award-winning author of THE WHOLE GOLDEN WORLD
"The clever and unique mix of martial arts, Chandler-worthy banter, mouth-watering feasts, and an extremely likable protagonist made me want join chef Tucker and his coterie for Chinese food and late-night sleuthing. Absolutely delicious.”
—Sarah Skilton, author of BRUISED
“Lowry’s engaging first novel is as accomplished as its young hero - smart, skillful, self-possessed. Warning: do not read this book without a good Chinese restaurant on speed-dial!”
—Hilary Fields, author of BLISS
“Lowry’s fast-paced tale is reminiscent of Kurt Russell’s Big Trouble In Little China, or an off-centerPhilip Marlowe from a Raymond Chandler story. That is, it’s a chaotic, intriguing and fun read that delivers quite a punch.”
