THE FIRST OF THE ACCLAIMED CHINESE NOVELS, BY THE BEST-SELLING MILLIONAIRE AUTHOR RICHARD AND JUDY THE BLACKHOUSE.
LI YAN A grotesquely burned corpse found in a city park is a disturbing mystery to Beijing detective Li Yan.
Yan, dedicated to his career as a means of restoring the respect his family lost during the Cultural Revolution, needs outside help if he wants to solve the case.
MARGARET CAMPBELL The unidentified body in turn provides a welcome distraction for for forensic pathologist Margaret Campbell.
Campbell, married to her job and having left behind America and her broken past, sets out on an investigation, and soon discovers a strange anomaly.

A fiery and volatile chemistry is ignited: exposing not only your individual demons, but an even greater evil - a conspiracy that threatens your lives, as well as those of millions of others.
