Publisher's Summary

Beijing detective Li Yan, now based at the Chinese embassy in Washington, is dispatched to find out how his fellow countrymen died in a sealed refrigeration unit in southern Texas. Then he finds himself face-to-face with American pathologist Margaret Campbell, the woman who walked out of China, and his life, to return to the US.
Tasked to work together again to investigate the $100 million trade in illegal Chinese immigrants that led to the tragedy in Texas, they discover that the immigrants were unwitting carriers of a deadly cargo. And still wrestling with the demons of their pasts, Li and Margaret find themselves racing against time to defuse a biological time-bomb that threatens to wipe out not only their future, but that of humankind.

An outstanding listening experience

The Peter May/Simon Vance combination is among my favorites. Right up there with James Lee Burke/Will Patton and Adrian McKinty/Gerard Doyle. Excellent writing with superb narration is the reason to listen to books. This story is intriguing, the characters are complex and flawed, some more deeply than others. Just like most of the human beings you know. If you haven't listened to a May/Vance book, do yourself a favor.
