An American archaeologist is dead. Was it a simple accident or part of a series of events that implicates a growing political movement? Lui Hulan, an inspector for the Ministry of Public Security, and her husband, an American lawyer, are each investigating events at the archaeological site, but with different perspectives and purposes. Liza Ross uses the differences in speech patterns and tones of the various American and Chinese characters without falling into stereotypes. Her presentation of Hulan draws out the nuances of her dealings with her superiors, both those intimidated by her position and those with whom she has a more personal relationship.
