An “exciting and absorbing” mystery about an NYPD homicide detective following leads that stretch from Chinatown to the Bronx and beyond (The Wall Street Journal). When the body of an unidentified Asian man surfaces in the Harlem River, Det. Jack Yu leaves his downtown precinct to investigate. The trail leads him to the Gee family, noodle manufacturers who on the surface look like the ideal immigrant success story—but Jack needs to dig deeper. Following leads from the benevolent associations of Chinatown to the take-out restaurants, strip clubs, and underground gambling establishments of the Bronx, to a wealthy, exclusive corner of New Jersey, he plunges into a world of secrets and unclear allegiances, of Chinatown street gangs and major Triad players. With the help of an elderly fortune-teller and an old friend, the unpredictable Billy Bow, he is faced with solving his most difficult case yet, in this crime thriller that “takes the reader on a tour through the Chinese communities in New York’s five boroughs that is frightening, fascinating and not a little enlightening” (The Toronto Star).
