Vu Tran has written a thrilling and cinematic work of sophisticated suspense and haunting lyricism set in motion by characters who can neither trust each other nor themselves. Dragonfish is a remarkable debut, a noir page-turner. Robert's ex-wife has disappeared and her new husband is blackmailing Robert into finding her for him. His search leads him to learn more about his ex-wife than he ever did in their marriage. As Robert starts illuminating the dark corners of her life, the legacy of her sins threatens to immolate them all.
