Robert Pendleton is a chemical genius with a fertilizer worth a fortune to whoever controls the formula. Not surprisingly, the Bank, his notoriously exclusive backer, wants to keep an eye on its investment. But so does the CIA. And the Chinese government. And a few shadier organizations. So when Pendleton disappears from a conference in San Francisco, along with all of his research, Neal Carey enters the picture.

Neal knows the Bank is calling in its chips in return for paying his grad school bills. He thinks this assignment will be a no-brainer until he meets the beguiling Li Lan and touches off a deadly game of hide-and-seek that will lead him from San Francisco's Chinatown to the lawless back streets of Hong Kong, and finally into the dark heart of China. In a world where no one is what they seem, Neal must unravel the mystery of a beautiful woman and reach the fabled Buddha's Mirror, a mist-shrouded lake where all secrets are revealed.

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Despite Neal’s inveterate habit of wising off in his mind’s mouth, this is a sturdy two evenings’ worth of entertainment.”

    " I just love Winslow's humor. His stories are always so much richer for it. "

    " This was just OK (and some of it was annoying)....but now of course I want to know what happens to the character so I will probably read the next one. Thanks goodness there are only 4 (or maybe 5) in the series.) "

    " Found the resolution a bit far-fetched, and the backdrop of international relations a bit much, too. I prefer a smaller scale kind of story. Still, the Chinese setting was a nice change from my usual urban noir reads, and it kept me reading if not completely engaged. "

    " This adventure takes Neal Carey to Hong Kong and China in pursuit of a beautiful woman and a missing artist. Winslow's work is rich in detail but sometimes falters in plot cohesion. Nevertheless, it is pure delight to revisit these novels. "

    " less light than the other Neal Carey books, a splendid travelogue deftly conjuring up San Francisco and Hong Kong as Neal Carey follows the neat swirling plot.

    very good "
