But he grows increasingly frustrated as the Chinese police actively hinder-and the English bureaucrats pointedly ignore-his investigation. As Chan tracks the killers, he discovers cover-ups and conspiracies running deeper than even he had imagined. All the while, in the background, the clock ticks down to the day the British leave...
