** Dragonfish by Vu Tran


Dragonfish investigates the disappearance of a Vietnamese woman married to a violent gangster who asks her first husband, a police officer, to find her. In a CSI-like Las Vegas, the officer uncovers his ex-wife’s secret life, dating back to the Malaysian refugee camp she fled to from Vietnam.

The story is very dark and the recurring motifs from the past life did not really work for me. Still, the plot is interestingly coiled.
