This novel of suspense takes listeners through a web of lies and treachery in China, where even tomorrow’s weather is a state secret.

David Wang, a Chinese-American art historian, dies shortly after a visit to an ancient tomb housing priceless artifacts. The official diagnosis is death by duck, a fatal confluence of culture shock and rich cuisine. American Tom Stratton, whom Wang mentored, suspects something more sinister, especially after the dead man’s brother, a highly placed Party official, tries to have him kidnapped.

From a nightmarish interrogation to assassination by cobra, A Death in China takes readers on a trip with no rest stops through a world of claustrophobic mistrust and terrifying danger.
