Operating from his headquarters in Hong Kong, Deng seems a pillar of society and one of the Crown Colony’s most influential Chinese businessmen, yet beneath the facade he is a man whose shadowy past conceals a life of revenge and murder. Because of the imminent takeover of Hong Kong by Red China, Deng has begun a search for an American law firm to handle his US interests prior to his own relocation there.

Eager to net Deng as a client, and learning that recruiting young Tom MacLean will give them the inside track, the New York law firm of Needham & Lewis persuades the brilliant prosecutor to leave the US attorney’s office and join them. When MacLean becomes Deng’s lawyer, he has no idea of the truth about his wealthy client, or of the unwitting role played by his own father, a former CIA officer, in Deng’s rise to power.

As Deng masterminds a daring plan to transfer the assets of the Hong Kong crime syndicates to the United States with a huge shipment of the finest pure heroin, “China white,” MacLean finds himself caught up in a tangled web of conspiracy and deceit, torn between his duty as Deng’s lawyer to protect his client’s interests, and his deepening love for Shannon O’Shea, an FBI agent specializing in Chinese organized crime and heroin trafficking. O’Shea becomes Deng’s nemesis, dogging his every step, risking not only her relationship with MacLean but both their very lives in a spell-binding conclusion that takes the reader from the innermost secrets of the CIA to the hidden Chinatown world of the new Mafia.
