Combining a Murder Mystery and Immigrant Family Story with Jane Pek

-

At Public Libraries Online, Jane Pek discusses her debut novel, The Verifiers, which follows Claudia Lin, an amateur sleuth who investigates the potential suitors of lovelorn New Yorkers. “When I read, above all it’s about becoming invested in the character,” Pek explains. “Once I’m invested, I’ll follow them anywhere. When I started writing Claudia, I knew that I wanted to write a character that readers would feel invested in in the same way. Part of that is I felt the whole idea around her family and how that shaped her, and how she related to them was also a core part of that. I guess the book is billed as a murder mystery and an Asian American immigrant family story, so, to me, that was also a central part of the novel.”
