Description

Two dead bodies lead an NYPD detective all the way to Seattle's Chinatown, in this "gripping police procedural full of surprising twists" (The Kansas City Star). The corpses of a young man and woman are discovered at an address on the Bloody Angle, the historic Tong battleground in New York's Chinatown. Is it a simple murder-suicide? The grieving families want Detective Jack Yu to keep a lid on any stories that might further tarnish their family names—but the Golden Galaxy karaoke bar, where the young woman worked, is made for scandal, a hotbed of drugs, snakeheads, and smuggled prostitutes. As puzzling links between the murders and the criminal underworld emerge, Yu's investigation takes him across the country to another Chinatown, this one's in Seattle. In the new city, stymied by the uncooperative local cops, he needs answers from a cold-blooded gangster and a mysterious Hong Kong femme fatale . . .
