Midnight in Peking: How the Murder of a Young Englishwoman Haunted the Last Days of Old China - Paul French I only have an ARC, but apparently the actual book doesn't include a map either. It's really needed. Looking on the publisher's site for the book though, there is an interactive map online. This ought to have been included.

The book itself is very well written and fascinating though and I can't wait to finish.

What a fascinating and sad book. The way the investigation was conducted and the lengths Werner went to to try and find the truth... Fabulous book.
