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

an American law firm to handle his US interests prior to his own relocation

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

client, or of the unwitting role played by his own father, a former CIA

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
