Synopsis of book»

Beijing, People`s Republic of China. Inspector Wang of the Public Security Bureau is expecting a pleasant and well-earned night out at the People`s Opera House. Instead, he finds himself face to face with a murder victim. A victim who has slipped through the hands of even China`s relentless system of mass surveillance.

Wang`s search for answers takes him into the underworld of the Chinese capital, into the secret, sinister world of Communist Party politics, and out to the ancient caves of Huashan, where a killer`s secret awaits discovery.
