In this fourth of Peter May's acclaimed China Thrillers, American pathologist Margaret Campbell is faced with a truck full of dead Chinese immigrants and an unavoidable confrontation with her past. Beijing detective Li Yan, now based at the Chinese embassy in Washington, is dispatched to find out how his fellow countrymen suffocated in a sealed refrigeration unit in southern Texas-only to find himself face-to-face with the woman who walked out of China, and his life, to return to the U.S. Tasked to work together again to find out who is behind the $100 million trade in illegal Chinese immigrants, Margaret and Li Yan discover that the bodies in the truck were unwitting carriers of a deadly cargo. Peter May's China Thrillers books have won critical acclaim. As a mark of their respect for his work, The Chinese Crime Writers' Association made him an honorary member of their Beijing Chapter, the only Westerner to receive such an honor. May is married to writer Janice Hally and lives in France. www.petermay.co.uk
