The third funny food-forward mystery by Ed Lin set in and around Taipei's bustling night market
Jing-nan has known Peggy Lee, a bullying frenemy who runs her family's huge corporation, since high school. Peggy's father has been kidnapped, and the ransom the kidnappers are demanding is not money but IP: a high-tech memory chip that they want to sell in China.
Jing-nan feels sorry for Peggy until she starts blackmailing him into helping out. Peggy is worried the kidnappers' deadline will pass before the police are able to track down the chip. But when the reluctant Jing-nan tries to help, he finds himself deeper and deeper in trouble with some very unsavory characters - the most unsavory of whom might very well be the victim himself.

Really love this series
I have read the first 2 books in the Taipei Night Market series and loved them so was excited to read the 3rd installment. This book doesn't disappoint. Jing-nan is such a great, well-rounded character, I really hope there will be more in this series.
