SNAKEHEAD
Li and Campbell will soon find that the crime scene hides another secret: a biological time bomb linking traffickers, politicians, and migrants in Beijing, Washington, and Texas—posing multiple countries one very singular threat.

    " This fourth book in May's China series switches the setting to the USA, causing the book to lose some of its appeal for me. It was very consistent w/earlier books in the series as far as plot development and figuring out who the bad guys were and as usual w/May the coincidences certainly pile up. "
