Neal knows the Bank is calling in its chips in return for paying his grad school bills. He thinks this assignment will be a no-brainer—until he meets the beguiling Li Lan and touches off a deadly game of hide-and-seek that will lead him from San Francisco’s Chinatown to the lawless back streets of Hong Kong, and finally into the dark heart of China. In a world where no one is what they seem, Neal must unravel the mystery of a beautiful woman and reach the fabled Buddha’s Mirror, a mist-shrouded lake where all secrets are revealed.

Tremendous novel of East & West
I had listened to an earlier Neil Carey novel read by another narrator. I didn’t care for it much, but I love most of Winslow’s work and Joe Barrett is one of the best narrators in the business. Barrett is strongest on irony and sarcasm, both of which are prominent in this series. The combination of Barrett and Winslow make Trail To Buddha’s Mirror a 5 star experience.

Winslow's Terrific But...
Lemme warn ya... Winslow does a LOT OF RESEARCH, this time on China, and has an obsession to use it all. That sometimes snarls the story's momentum. He's also a craftsman who digs into the successful bag-O-tools, including clchés and stereotypes that advance the story. Once upon a time heroes would get knocked senseless in one chapter then pop-back vigorous as an 18 year old at a rave. Mistaken identity's another easy cliché to leap a sharky plot problem.
Do I wish he wouldn't do stuff like that? Well duh. But, y'gotta' get from point A to point Z and a commercial writer makes that happen. Winslow's commercial, he sells to me... And I will buy the next Neal Carey novel... Especially if it''s read by Joe Barett.
