Flower Net: A Red Princess Mystery (Red Princess Mysteries)

Novel by Lisa See


Flower Net by Lisa See is the first of the Red Princess mysteries. The other two novels in the series are The Interior and Dragon Bones. Flower Net explores the state of US-China relations in the early months of 1997, especially in terms of international politics, human trafficking, and the smuggling of illegal goods such as bear bile, and nuclear trigger devices. It also focuses on human relationships – especially those between father and son, father and daughter. Pam Spencer suggests that the title refers to "the flower net used by Chinese fishermen who throw the mesh wide to trap everything within its reach".
