Soon after an ancient talisman is smuggled out of Hong Kong, a container ship filled with Chinese refugees runs aground on Alcatraz, the crew murdered. The Chinese Triads suspect one of their own, a female assassin named Sally known to have complex relationships with a San Francisco detective named Cape Weathers.

Cape quickly realizes he's screwed if he doesn't find out what really happened on board the ship.

From the Back Cover:

A container ship carrying hundreds of Chinese refugees runs aground on Alcatraz, its crew murdered with deadly precision. While the police and FBI look for suspects, private investigator Cape Weathers knows only a trained assassin could have pulled it off - someone like his erstwhile partner, Sally. But she's gone missing, and when Cape starts asking questions, someone puts a dead body in his trunk and a price on his head. The Triads, powerful organized crime groups that control human smuggling out of China, wanted something on that ship. It's up to Cape to find out what could be more valuable than the human cargo before the Triads find him. Word travels fast in Chinatown's criminal underworld, and Cape is now worth much more dead than alive.
