ATING . . . A NEAR-EPIC STORY."
The New York police seize more than a million dollars tainted with heroin powder, implicating two elderly and distinguished Chinatown residents. Their case is rushed before the grand jury.
*The Cleveland Plain Dealer
Susan Linwood and David Clark are strangers before being asked to serve in the name of justice. Yet as prosecutor Dan Mahoney presents the drug-conspiracy case, they soon become completely absorbed with the proceedings--and increasingly with each other.
"IMPRESSIVE . . . [A] RICHLY NUANCED NOVEL."
As Mahoney struggles with facts that refuse to fit the crimes his superiors have told him to pursue, Linwood and Clark are launched onto a treacherous path to Hong Kong and China, to the edge of disaster *uncoverin
Unlike the usual courtroom thriller, this exciting novel begins with a grand jury trial in which an elderly Chinese couple is charged with cocaine possession and illegal money. The trial is over within the first 10 minutes, but the real adventure is just beginning for jurors Susan Linwood and David Clark. Over the next six hours the listener is transported from midtown Manhattan to Chinatown and off to Hong Kong. Reader Rubinstein handles the voices of the characters with true skill, and his Chinese dialect is right on target. Just when the listener thinks the mystery is solved, the story takes another twist, and the climactic ending is a thrill ride for the ears and mind. Production quality is superb. S.I.R.
