A vehicle crammed with dozens of dead Chinese immigrants is found in Southern Texas. Pathologist Margaret Campbell must put aside her horror and find out why.

Highly enjoyable

Really enjoyable book and series. The twists and turns, though in places predictable, are fast paced and give the reader new philosophical and scientific avenues to explore and question within themselves. The love story lines are certainly not May's strongest areas of writing and characters are often squarely fixed into their stereotypes, but he provides a great piece of escapism for all to enjoy.

Not as good as his later books

I did enjoy this book, especially the narration. Peter Forbes really is a master of audiobooks. Peter May’s Scottish stories are just much better books. I’m glad to have all of the China Thrillers finally being read by Peter Forbes though.
