"This is the kind of book that when you read it, you really are transported back to that time and place... [Choo has] captured, in a very atmospheric way, the time period and the superstitions [of colonial Malaysia in the 1930s]. It's a pretty wonderful book. -Nancy Pearl, NPR's Morning Edition

"Richly complex...Gorgeous...Transport[s] us into a colonial world we more often see from the view of the occupier, in this transcendent tale about twins who share no blood, mythology and superstition, sibling rivalry, loyalty, forbidden love and identity. -San Francisco Chronicle

"A mesmerizing tale of murder, romance, and superstition....So vividly told, you can practically smell the oleander blossoms outside Acton's house. This Night Tiger is worth a prowl. -USA Today

"A book for fans of Isabel Allende and for those who love a murder mystery with a beautiful backdrop. -Glamour

"Fans of Isabel Allende will likely soar through Yangsze Choo's The Night Tiger at a breakneck pace, so you might want to clear your schedule before sitting down to read it. -PopSugar

"So engrossing you could spend a day reading this lush historical novel without staring at your phone once... A sweeping novel with something for everyone - and incredible writing." -Refinery29

"A bravura performance." -Washington Independent Review of Books

"A sumptuous garden maze of a novel that immerses readers in a complex, vanished world...Choo weaves her research in with a feather-light touch, and readers will be so caught up in the natural and supernatural intrigue that the serious themes here about colonialism and power dynamics, about gender and class, are absorbed with equal delicacy. -Kirkus (starred review)

"A work of incredible beauty...Astoundingly captivating and striking in its portrayal of love, betrayal, and death, The Night Tiger is a transcendent story of courage and connection." -Booklist (starred review)

"Mythical creatures, conversations with the dead, lucky numbers, Confucian virtues, and forbidden love provide the backdrop to Choo's superb murder mystery. Mining the rich setting of colonial Malaysia, Choo wonderfully combines a Holmes-esque plot with Chinese lore. -Publishers Weekly (starred and boxed review)
