Publisher's Summary

Robert Pendleton is a chemical genius with a fertilizer worth a fortune to whoever controls the formula. Not surprisingly, the Bank, his notoriously exclusive backer, wants to keep an eye on its investment. But so does the CIA. And the Chinese government. And a few shadier organizations. So when Pendleton disappears from a conference in San Francisco, along with all of his research, Neal Carey enters the picture.

Neal knows the Bank is calling in its chips in return for paying his grad school bills. He thinks this assignment will be a no-brainer—until he meets the beguiling Li Lan and touches off a deadly game of hide-and-seek that will lead him from San Francisco’s Chinatown to the lawless back streets of Hong Kong, and finally into the dark heart of China. In a world where no one is what they seem, Neal must unravel the mystery of a beautiful woman and reach the fabled Buddha’s Mirror, a mist-shrouded lake where all secrets are revealed.

What the Critics Say

“What begins as a routine missing persons case becomes a complex web of deceit, danger, and international intrigue in this superb mystery…. Vivid local color and absorbing historical detail enhance the chase and reinforce suspense as the story reaches its surprising resolution.” (Publishers Weekly)

    "A story can have to many twists"

    Not Don's best work. A good story has suspense and creditability, this one loses on the credibility. Neil's actions sometime just don't make sense. Hey, we've all lusted after a hot girl before. But I don't know anyone who would go the lengths Neil does for a hot girl he never met. Don should have had a better story there.

    Story
    "Book 2 in the Neal Carey Mysteries"

    Don Winslow and Joe Barrett are a great pair...Winslows writing is enhanced by Barrett's narrating..reading reviews of this series I see I'm not the only one who appreciates this duo.

    Carey is a PI who seems to get into a lot of trouble, no matter where he is he finds something or someone who causes him problems..with fixes that I haven't guessed yet..I like that in a mystery!

    If you haven't read Don Winslow's books, I encourage you to give them a try..
