Duration: 6 hours 50 minutes

Summary:

Modern, independent Mei Wang runs her own PI business in Beijing; she even has that most modern of commodities, a male secretary. When a family friend asks her to locate a Han dynasty jade of great value that was taken from its museum during the years of the Cultural Revolution when Red Guards seized many relics, her investigation reveals a story that has more to do with the past and her own family history than she ever expected. To solve the case, Mei must delve into that dark, brutal part of China’s history, Mao’s labor camps, and the countless deaths for which no one was ever held responsible. It exposes the agonizing choices made during the Revolution, to kill or be killed, to love or to live.

“Diane Wei Liang takes what seems to be a clever gimmick—the first female private investigator in Beijing—and infuses it with a poignant mediation on being an outsider who suddenly wants to find her way back in…Liang’s clear, inviting prose already portends a strong future in the genre.”--Baltimore Sun
