Welcome, readers! Anne R. Tan is a USA Today bestselling author. Her humorous mysteries feature Chinese-American sleuths and diverse characters because everyone deserves to be an armchair detective.

A Note from Anne

My books are my legacy to my children. They will not grow up in the San Francisco Bay Area like I did. Without a cultural hub, our family would lose this part of our heritage in one generation. My children are visitors to Chinese culture, just like my readers. At its core, Chinese culture is about family and community. And my characters—Raina Sun, Lucy Fong, Cedar Woods, and their dynamic family—embody these values in every chapter. Come and experience the vibrant world I've created. I promise you'll enjoy reading my books as much as I've loved writing them.


I've read all 10 Raina Sun books this Easter weekend ... This is not dissimilar to Alexander Mccall Smith and his Mma Ramotswe/No 1 Detective Agency, for introducing the reader to a different culture.
