The son of the American Ambassador to China is found buried in the ice, and, at the same time, the son of a powerful Chinese businessman, a “Red Prince,” is found dead in an immigrant-smuggling freighter. Unbeknownst to the investigators, both died from the same drug. Who is behind the murders? How were they connected? In precise detail, Lisa See unfolds the flower net and captures all who are involved. Liza Ross follows the intricate investigation with precise words, pausing frequently within sentences to enunciate and perhaps imitate inflections of English-speaking Chinese. This stilted pronunciation is reflected in both the narration and dialogue. Nothing is what is seems, even the conclusion. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
