The Fourth Sacrifice by Peter May

Peter May is a terrific writer and I wanted to enjoy his China Thrillers series.

But both his two lead characters — Chinese detective Li Yan, and Dr Margaret Campbell, pathologist from Chicago — are simply annoying.

In fact, I didn’t finish book #1.

I did finish #2, The Fourth Sacrifice, but I doubt I will continue.

A new character, an archeologist TV star, kept me interested in this one. I did enjoy the parts that involved the trove of Xian with its famous army of terracotta warriors.

Overall … not recommended.
