Summary
"Chief Inspector Chen Cao of the Shanghai Police Bureau is increasingly seen as a man on the rise - he is a poet with a popular new collection, a Party cadre recently appointed to the city congress, and a respected police inspector. But appearances can't always be trusted." "When a major new anti-corruption campaign is announced at the highest levels, Inspector Chen is summoned by an official of the Party to take the lead in a high-profile case, one in which the principal figure, Xing Xing, and his family have long since fled to the United States and beyond the reach of the Chinese government. But Xing left behind his organization, and Chen is charged with uncovering his connections and partners, and is authorized to take whatever means he has to to end the corruption ring. The assignment is potentially dangerous - a detective working on the case in Fujian was found dead in embarrassing and suspicious circumstances - and one that could have disastrous consequences for Chen, his friends, and his family." "In a twisting case that takes him from Shanghai all the way to the U.S., reuniting him with his colleague and counterpart from the U.S. Marshall's Service, Inspector Catherine Rhon, Chen finds himself at odds with hidden, powerful, and vicious enemies."--BOOK JACKET
