American-Born Chinese P.I. Lydia Chin is called in on what appears to be a simple case. Jeff Dunbar, art world insider, wants her to track down a rumor. Contemporary Chinese painting is sizzling hot on the art scene and no one is hotter than Chau Chun, known as the Ghost Hero. A talented and celebrated ink painter, Chau's highly-prized work mixes classical forms and modern political commentary. The rumor of new paintings by Chau is shaking up the art world. There's only one problem - Ghost Hero Chau has been dead for twenty years, killed in the 1989 Tianamen Square uprising. Not only is Ghost Hero Chau long dead, but Lydia's client isn't who he claims to be either. And she's not the only P.I. hired to look for these paintings. Lydia and her partner, Bill Smith, soon learn that someone else - Jack Lee: P.I., art expert, and, like Lydia, American-Born Chinese - is also on the case. What starts as rumors over new paintings by a dead artist quickly becomes something far more desperate--a high-stakes crisis the P.I.'s will find themselves risking everything to resolve.

The narrator was so poor that I had to stop listening. There was no difference between the voices of the characters, male or female
I'd like to read or listen to the book, I like the author very much, I'd like to have the part of my life back spent trying to listen to it read by this reader!
I would've switched to the print version
