NYPD Red 2 Redux: “A dozen Chinese men from twenty-something to eighty-something were grouped in a semicircle, chain-smoking and watching two men hunched over a makeshift table. They were playing Go, the two-thousand-year-old Chinese board game.” From “NYPD Red 2” by James Patterson & Marshall Karp, sent in by EJ reader Gene Halverson.
