Triad official Steven Wong is the paper fan, a Hong. It's about a gangster in East Vancouver which is very interesting to me but then the book becomes about the author chasing the gangster across south east asia and it just isn't that interesting. An eye-opener-I never realized there were so many Chinese/Asian gang wars in North America. They really play a large role in crime.

Some error text about your books and stuff. Roger Cerdea, Funeral Service Director, Pasay City, Metro Manila There is no marker where the Paper Fan''s ashes are buried.

Some error text about your books and stuff. Paper Fan : the Hunt for Triad Gangster Steven Wong. The Schlipfs, Kosakas, and Holts are remembered with bronze plaques, but the Triad official has only an empty square of fescue to show for his life. You''re sure this is his plot?" I ask Kein Battistone, the Forest Lawn Cemetery''s family service counselor. Kein takes a step forward from where he stands discreetly behind me.

Triad official Steven Wong is the “paper fan,” a thirty-nine-year-old Hong Kong-born mobster. Raised in New York’s Chinatown, he matured into crime in Vancouver, where he founded and headed the murderous Gum Wah Gang in the late 1980s and early ‘90s. In 1992, Wong “died” in a traffic accident in a remote area of the Philippines before he could be sent to jail for heroin trafficking, just after he’d taken out a million-dollar life insurance policy. His urn may be interred in a Vancouver cemetery; but today, Interpol has a “Red Alert” arrest warrant out for Wong. His updated file reads like a Hollywood action film—an organized criminal adventure that circles the Pacific Rim, from Macau to Japan, from Cambodia to the Philippines. For eleven years, award-winning writer Terry Gould tracked Wong through the organized crime circles of six countries, where politicians, police, businessmen and criminals run in one big pack, sometimes nipping each other’s heels, licking each other’s faces, and inviting one another home for all-night mah-jongg parties. Four times, Gould has traced Wong and pinned him down, but the law has let him slip away. Paper Fan includes telling photographs in this unforgettable hunt for one man.

This book needed a strong editor. We get too much of the writer's thoughts, his interaction with people, and his supposedly brilliant investigative work. Information that should be summarized in a paragraph become pages long. Cut the fat and stick to the story: why is Steven so dangerous, what crimes did he commit, how did he escape, where is he now?

If you need to know more about Asian crime, I guess you should buy this. Otherwise, there are much better books.

Book was ok but felt that the author spent way too much time going on about some of the other characters, went into too much detail (got a bit boring)

While I found the subject matter of this book fascinating, I was disgusted with the man who wrote it. Written with cockiness, subtle racist ovetones and overall bad attitude, he made the book almost unreadable. He is constantly building himself up as some kind of tough guy who is smarter than the criminals who he bashes in this book. If he's so smart how come he still hasn't found Steven Wong? It is clear that deep down he wants desperatly to be like these gangsters, he just doesn't have the guts. He acts like he launched this whole campaign on a moral level, but really it's all about a story and fame for Terry Gould. He is a coward. What I found especially offensive was his depiction of Asian women. My wife is Asian so I was personally offended. He constantly feeds into the stereotype that all Asian women are prostitutes, referring to the gangsters' girls as "tarts" and describing the poor Filipino girls who approached him as "a plague". Clearly this guy has no concept of what it's like to grow up with nothing, having to do things you'd rather not do to survive. He tells his pathetic sob story of how he got beat up once, his mother's friend was raped and he was a witness to violence as a kid. Boo hoo. I used to get beat up every day until I decided to start fighting back like a man. I know plenty of people who've been through all those terrible things and more. Terry Gould is a typical cocky New Yorker who thinks he's better than everyone. In reality, he is a scared, cowardly wannabe-gangster, wannabe-cop and worst of all a wannabe-snitch. I hope he never finds Steven Wong, rather I hope Wong and his friends find him.

What a waste of money this was.
Fool you Mr. Gould....believing the likes of Mary Ong over Ping Lacson.
Sensationalist claptrap.
p.s.....and yes, I do not know what I'm talking about. Very much so.

While Steven Wong the Triad Gangster rose through the ranks in Vancouver's Gangland, I was a Vancouver cop who had many dealings with him. I probably knew Wong, and of his activities, more so than anyone in the Vancouver Police Department, other than a handfull of other cops who might be inclined to say the same thing. I was a cop who used Wong to my own end, while Wong used me to his. I still don't know who, if anyone, came out on top.
Due to my personal knowledge of Wong and his Red Eagles, his rivals the Viet Ching, Jung Ching and Lotus Gangs, plus their victims etc., I feel competant to say, "In writing Paper Fan, Terry Gould did an excellent job describing Wong and the events of the day." Terry knows his stuff, and he tells his story extremely well. It is not often one can learn such an immense amount of true information while at the same time be entertained. The book reads like a novel.

Triad members are very secretive of their organization. One must be initiated to be a member. Young recruits will usually start as a street soldier. In order to rise up the rank one need to be able to be a good earner. With $$ come power. Eventually that will lead to more "heng dai" brothers working under him. Which in hand controls different biz and Enterprises. This book is a good read for those that want to know more about the Chinese Triad. Catch the Hong Kong movie Young & Dangerous and you'll get an even better idea how Triads operates. You hv to give all due respect to them cause they do operate much better then most large Corp. Peace Steven.
