Episode 319 — Steph Cha


Steph Cha is the guest. Her new novel, Beware Beware, is available now from Minotaur Books.

The Los Angeles Times says

Before this cautionary tale is over, secrets will be revealed, lies within lies told, more people injured or killed and Song’s core values compromised in ways that will have psychological reverberations for years, and books, to come. Nathanael West and Raymond Chandler would be proud.

And Publishers Weekly says

Engaging… Song soon becomes caught in a complex plot involving deception, betrayal, and revenge.  Cha follows noir conventions, with Daphne as femme fatale and Song forced into morally ambiguous choices, but she also offers a plucky heroine, warm secondary characters, and a vivid portrait of L.A.’s Koreatown.
