The Murder Game by M. J. Lee. Published by HarperCollins UK

A young woman has climbed out of a pit embedded with razor blades. Mortally wounded and bleeding profusely, she stumbles into Shanghai shouting the name of Inspector Danilov. With the girl dead, Danilov and his partner have few clues, but soon more people are killed, and each one has a message for Danilov. It would seem a killer has a very personal bone to pick with the inspector and he needs to figure out who before anyone else is killed. Lee captures turn of the twentieth century Shanghai so completely, I swear I could smell the smoke and city. If you haven’t read this series yet, do yourself a favor and start
