Foul Lady Fortune
Foul Lady Fortune | Chloe Gong
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of These Violent Delights and Our Violent Ends comes the first book in a captivating new duology following an ill-matched pair of spies posing as a married couple to investigate a series of brutal murders in 1930s Shanghai. Its 1931 in Shanghai, and the stage is set for a new decade of intrigue. Four years ago, Rosalind Lang was brought back from the brink of death, but the strange experiment that saved her also stopped her from sleeping and agingand allows her to heal from any wound. In short, Rosalind cannot die. Now, desperate for redemption from her traitorous past, she uses her abilities as an assassin for her country. Code name: Fortune. But when the Japanese Imperial Army begins its invasion march, Rosalinds mission pivots. A series of murders is causing unrest in Shanghai, and the Japanese are under suspicion. Rosalinds new orders are to infiltrate foreign society and identify the culprits behind the terror plot before more of her people are killed. To reduce suspicion, however, she must pose as the wife of another Nationalist spy, Orion Hong, and though Rosalind finds Orions cavalier attitude and playboy demeanor infuriating, she is willing to work with him for the greater good. But Orion has an agenda of his own, and Rosalind has secrets that she wants to keep buried. As they both attempt to unravel the conspiracy, the two spies soon find that there are deeper and more horrifying layers to this mystery than they ever imagined.

Chinese and European prostitutes lived and worked in
Shanghai's French Concession, catering to all the ethnic groups in the city. After the establishment of foreign concessions placed Shanghai under semi-colonial control, French & Chinese culture combined in the city to create a unique urban landscape that was unlike anywhere else in the world.

Priest is a girl..

Let the guessing begin….

vlwelser Alisa 1w
TheBookHippie @vlwelser has to be ? 1w
5feet.of.fury @vlwelser same guess… are we onto something or is it too early to tell? 1w
See All 9 Comments
TheBookHippie @5feet.of.fury My other thought was Juliette @vlwelser 👀 1w
vlwelser I mean if you look at where Juliette is supposed to be based on the blurb from the other book, it's plausible. But only just. If she's really there. 1w
vlwelser My second guess is Celia. But actually sticking with Alisa. 1w
vlwelser Can I just also point out that Chloe makes a point that there's no gender in Chinese languages? Because most people might not know that. 1w
TheBookHippie @vlwelser oh I wrote that down too!!!! 🙃 I was going to post it !! 1w

Newspapers a clue? They‘ve been brought up since the first of the book.🤷🏻‍♀️

vlwelser Not sure anyone should be trusting Oliver. 1w
Catsandbooks Yeah I think it's smart not to fully trust Oliver. I don't get what's happening with the newspapers but seems like anything the Japanese have their hand in is no good. 1w

So …. Silas …knows Alisa…
Silas & Phoebe break Alisa out.
Phoebe… what a hoot.
Thoughts on all of this?!?!
Phoebe… Silas is in love with her or ????

vlwelser Silas seems confused. Phoebe is a trip. And I love Alisa. 1w

Rope?

Rosalind overhearing Deoka the ambassador..when do imperialist care about history? Colonization, provoke fear to control… taking over nations -tale as old as time, reasons not seen or underlying reasons… I like the way the book is subliminally teaching this message of truth, in my opinion anyway.
Have you thought about the book in this way?
Also she coulda killed him and didn‘t at this point…

vlwelser I think she still sort of needs him for her mission. 1w

vlwelser January 2024? March 2024? I like long months for this. Because other books. 2w
TheBookHippie @vlwelser I was thinking the same we have three books from her coming 🤣♥️😵‍💫😬 I like the 5 week options I know January & March should be good and August for our two book thing! 2w
vlwelser So August 2023 (mini books) Jan 2024 (A&C) March 2024 (FLF#2)? This seems reasonable. Then May 2024 can be whatever crazy thing she gets up to next. Maybe Midsummer set in space? 2w

A file to get Priest identity..who is Priest?!

Where is Orion and Phoebe‘s mother really?

Tong Zilin
So who did she kill?

Haidi hmmm what or who is she
Why so strong 😵‍💫

The sexual identity of everyone Chloe put on Twitter -I like that it just is, and isn‘t a focus -you know like real life 🙃

vlwelser Priest. Could it be the mother? 2w
TheBookHippie @vlwelser my thoughts but I could be soooo wrong 👀 2w
vlwelser Tbh that Tong Zilin thing was weird. Did she kill him because he was trying to blackmail her? Because he was a bigot or collaborator or whatever? Because she felt like it and he was a pest? 2w
See All 20 Comments
TheBookHippie @vlwelser I‘m going with there was something off AB‘s he was a pest etc and well she felt like it 🤣😅 2w
vlwelser She felt like it is my favorite potential reason. I also love that Alisa is like nbd let's sort it out. 2w

Catsandbooks @vlwelser yes we all need an Alisa to be like OK so you killed someone what's the next step, I'm in 🤣 2w
Catsandbooks I absolutely LOVE all the LGBTQIA+ rep and it's not central to the storyline, cause it's just normal life! Like yes! Gimme more! 2w

vlwelser One thing that confuses me about this graphic.... Is communism meant to be an identity for O#1? Or are they all meant to be communists? 2w
TheBookHippie @vlwelser I think it‘s Russian . In nationality ? 2w
vlwelser I went down a rabbit hole. That seems like it might be the Chinese flag for the Communist Party. Maybe. It's still weird to use that as his identity marker. 2w
TheBookHippie @vlwelser 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 hmmmmm. I guess we will find out! 2w
Catsandbooks @vlwelser I was wondering that too for Oliver. He's just pure communist, nothing else 😂 2w

TheBookHippie @Meshell1313 it‘s interesting we do t know yet how their relationship started right? 2w

5feet.of.fury @vlwelser I feel like I keep their names straight but the way it switches perspectives sometimes in chapters… I‘m so confused about whose inner thoughts I‘m reading. I did forget who was in the warehouse so I might actually not be keeping them straight 😂 2w
vlwelser @5feet.of.fury I used to number my boyfriends so this confusion may not be new for me. 2w
TheBookHippie @5feet.of.fury I keep notes! Ha. 2w
5feet.of.fury @TheBookHippie I might need notes, there‘s a lot happening 2w
Catsandbooks I think the warehouse is the scene from the prologue. But as for Celia and Oliver I like them. I think Oliver is just trying to protect her by keeping her at a distance. Not that it's the right thing to do. And Celia is trying to show him he doesn't have to do this, whatever it is, on his own. 2w

Rosalind keeping Celia close and secret, interesting ..

Shanghai powerless …so she‘s it?

Rosalind‘s father trying to reach her…
Also do we trust Dao her handler ?

Rosalind‘s guilt for her past -is it clouding her entire life?

Meshell1313 I think her guilt is totally consuming her and driving her every action. Will she be able to get redemption? And if she does, will that be enough to make her guilt subside? I know I went from hating her in our violent ends to loving her now. 2w
TheBookHippie @Meshell1313 so did I!!! Ha. 2w
vlwelser She's protecting her loved ones (obvs not the father) and working to save China, possibly from itself but maybe mostly from foreigners. Is this intentional? No idea. 2w
TheBookHippie @vlwelser no idea either I love that about these books! 2w
Catsandbooks Her guilt is definitely a cloud hanging over her. I'm skeptical of Dao. But I am glad that her and Celia are keeping in touch in secret 2w

She‘s in a tiny apartment paid for by ??
She‘s looking for the same file !?

Alisa & Rosalind then become partners of sorts -
Good team ?

Meshell1313 I thought the same thing- does that mean Roma is ALIvE ??? And paying for her apt???? I can‘t. But I am soo happy she‘s in this one! I‘m wondering how important of a role she‘ll play! 2w

vlwelser Very hopeful that those other characters turn up later even if not in this particular book. 2w

I remember being taught the theme was love♥️🙃

vlwelser I get that this might be a Shakespeare style comedy. That scene in the nightclub was highly comical. 2w
TheBookHippie @vlwelser I loved every moment of it!!! 🤣 2w
Meshell1313 The deeper we go, the more I wasn‘t to reread As you like it. 2w

TheBookHippie @5feet.of.fury Right???? 3w
Catsandbooks The breakfast Lao Lao made sounded amazing! My husband studied abroad in China during college so when I read these books I'm always asking him questions or how to pronounce stuff lol. Anyway we make a fair bit of Chinese food and one thing we make a lot is congee, a rice porridge. It's very comforting! I was excited to see it as one of the things she made. 2w
Catsandbooks Also I adore Lao Lao and nothing better happen to her!! 2w
TheBookHippie @Catsandbooks I love food in a book! One of my best friends is from Taiwan so I‘m asking her things a lot too! 2w

So we need to know who priest is..

Orion‘s friend Silas is a triple agent
Not confusing at all 😅

Green bow tie man not real and Orion metal taste that can‘t be good …

Phoebe …whoops too chatty?

Good start? How are ya liking it?

vlwelser Phoebe is fun. None of these characters seems good at keeping secrets. That's either going to end badly or comic relief. 3w
TheBookHippie @vlwelser As You Like It is a comedy ….. 3w
vlwelser Ok. So that actually makes a lot of sense. Does anyone get turned into a donkey? 3w

vlwelser I feel like I need to read the play. I may just roll with it. 3w
TheBookHippie @vlwelser I was going to reread and decided to roll with it 🤷🏻‍♀️ at least that‘s my thought today 🤣. 3w
Meshell1313 Totally agree. I keep mixing up Orion and Oliver! 3w
Catsandbooks Phoebe is cute, but she's definitely gonna get into some trouble 😂 2w
TheBookHippie @Catsandbooks precocious I think ! 😆👀 2w
