Grace Chu is an American-educated Chinese national now working as a forensic accountant after serving in the Chinese army as an intelligence officer. John Knox is an American who parlayed his military service during the first Iraqi war into a lucrative import/export business, which now provides him the official access he needs to work freelance undercover operations throughout the world. Both are highly skilled operatives capable of deft subterfuge or extreme violence, if circumstances require.

They meet for the first (but not last) time in Shanghai when the security firm they work for is hired to retrieve a kidnapped employee critical to the success of a multi-billion dollar real estate deal. But the stakes are high, and Grace and Knox find themselves at the center of a deadly international imbroglio.

    " Not particularly impressed. Quick read, pulp fiction before nostalgia made pulp fiction an art form. Straight forward story "

    " I forget that Ridley Pearson writes grownup books because I love his series Peter and the Starcatchers so much. But this was really good with lots of action, a cool hero, John Knox, ex-military, and heroine, Grace Chu - who have great chemistry but thankfully do not have sex. Grace is a forensic accountant wo used to be in the Red Army so that gives her a good reason for some of the unusual skills she possesses. Loved the seting of China as I don't see a lot of books set there and it felt realistic and dirty and gritty. I liked that characters have some moral fiber and are loyal to their friends while naviating the murky waters of international intrigue and corporate misbehavior. If there are more of these I will be reading them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie | 1/18/2014

    " I liked the story pretty well, but found myself getting a bit confused and felt that it went on a bit too long. The setting in present day China was quite interesting and the resolution, when it finally came, was satisfying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorraine | 12/25/2013

    " You can't beat Ridley Pearson for his research and unexpected twists. However, I hate to say that this was my least favorite by him. Still a good read, and it perhaps could have been where I was emotionally, that I just didn't connect as well with the characters like I normally do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 8/24/2013

    " A fine thriller, set in Shanghai, involving Western construction and security firms, convoluted Chinese politics on a number of levels and corruption running throughout, thugs, beautiful women, a typhoon, and more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Burt | 7/25/2013

    " This was an interesting tale of how foreigners are kidnapped for ransom in China. It is based on real kidnapping stories but with a fictional twist. "
