In this gripping novel, Lou Boldt is back and entering dark territory.

A shipping container washed ashore leads Seattle television news anchor Stevie McNeal and reporter friend Melissa on the trail of a scam involving the importation of illegal aliens. A career stepping-stone for McNeal, the investigation puts her at cross-purposes with the Seattle Police Department's Lou Boldt and Sergeant John LaMoia.

When Melissa disappears, perhaps at the hands of the Chinese Triad, McNeal turns from foe to ally and teams up with the detectives on an investigation that takes them from Seattle's docklands to the offices of the Immigration and Naturalization Service. Download and start listening now!

    " Exciting and unusual mystery. Sometimes stretched the boundaries of what is reasonable even in light fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darla | 11/14/2013

    " Not my favorite of the Boldt books. Slow moving to start, taking me about half way through the book before it started picking up steam. It was sort of like a movie that you are half way through but not sure if it's worth your time to keep watching? Glad I hung in there for the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 7/14/2013

    " Pearson's police novels are some of the best in the genre. Lou Boldt is such a believable character, and Pearson's plots are tightly woven. I read as many of his books as I can get my hands on and time allows! "
