Charlie Chan: The Untold Story of the Honorable Detective and His Rendezvous With American History by Yunte Huang“An ingenious and absorbing book…It will permanently change the way we tell this troubled yet gripping story.” —Jonathan Spence
Hailed as “irrepressibly spirited and entertaining” (Pico Iyer, Time) and “a fascinating cultural survey” (Paul Devlin, Daily Beast), this provocative first biography of Charlie Chan presents American history in a way that it has never been told before. Yunte Huang ingeniously traces Charlie Chan from his real beginnings as a bullwhip-wielding detective in territorial Hawaii to his reinvention as a literary sleuth and Hollywood film icon. Huang finally resurrects the “honorable detective” from the graveyard of detested postmodern symbols and reclaims him as the embodiment of America’s rich cultural diversity. The result is one of the most critically acclaimed books of the year and a “deeply personal . . . voyage into racial stereotyping and the humanizing force of story telling” (Donna Seaman, Los Angeles Times).
Shortlisted for the 2010 National Book Critics Circle Award in Biography and the 2011 Edgar Award for Best Critical/Biographical Book.

Toler, in his first appearance as Chan, uncovers murder aboard a ship anchored at Honolulu. He orders the boat held until the crime is solved, giving the passengers a few extra days of intrigue. Measures up to previous technical efforts to complement an interesting story, but the direction and script are lackluster.
