Duration: 9 hours 30 minutes
Edgar and Macavity Award–nominated author Timothy Hallinan throws his erudite Los Angeles private eye into the middle of a global human-trafficking operation in this fifth book in the series. Simeon Grist does a favor for the family of his sometimes-girlfriend, Eleanor Chan, and goes looking for two children who vanished in Chinatown. He quickly learns that he’s gone straight through the looking glass and into a world where grieving parents are afraid to contact the police, where fear is the teacher and power is the law, and where helpless people are shipped from China to America and forced into lives of toil and submission.
“Spenser’s met his match…Some of the best mystery reading of the year. Hallinan’s story is sheer genius, with a highly original plot, snappy dialogue, mind-boggling menace, memorable characters, plenty of nightmare-producing violence, and enough thrills and chills to catch the attention of the most jaded reader…This book should move him into the upper echelon of hard-boiled detective fiction writers.”—Booklist (starred review)
