Publisher's Summary

The Chinese police have once more been forced to enlist the services of American forensic pathologist Margaret Campbell, this time to investigate a series of four horrific ritual executions in Beijing.  

Detective Li Yan is determined to discover just how one of the victims in particular, an American diplomat, became caught up in the slaying. And he is arguably even more determined to have nothing to do with Campbell, whom he finds simultaneously too foreign and too... familiar.  

The personal polarity that once attracted Yan and Campbell again strengthens their professional partnership. Yet the closer they draw to the truth, the greater the danger posed by a killer prepared to do anything to conceal it.

A big come down from Lewis Man trilogy

After Lewis Man I thought I would enjoy anything by Peter May. This was a very conventional murder mystery. The only thing that made it the least original was its setting in China with a Chinese male cop sharing the role of protagonist unequally with a female American forensic pathologist.
