Publisher's Summary

Young, talented, in love with life - why should Sally have thrown herself 15 floors to her death? But as suicide is the verdict of the uncompromising Hong Kong authorities, Sally’s brother, a London-based crime reporter, begins his own investigations. As he delves into the details of Sally’s unaccountably opulent lifestyle and her mysterious work as a journalist, he is forced to recognise a very different girl from the fun-loving kid sister he remembers.

He uncovers a trail that leads him through the decadent haunts of Hong Kong ex-pat society, the ruthless wheeler-dealing of international big-business and the violent Chinese mafia underworld – to an ultimate, shocking act of revenge.

OK

An interesting look into Hong Kong but not a great story with characters who do not last long in the memory
