U.S. District Attorney David Stark is sent to Beijing to work with Liu Hulan, a police detective whose disdain for the Chinese system is tolerated only because of her spectacular crime-solving skills. Their investigation takes them into every corner of today's China -- from glitzy karaoke bars, where government leaders and mafia kingpins make their most unsavory deals, to Beijing's labyrinthine hutongs, where working-class Chinese have eked out their livings for centuries. Lisa See shows readers a glimpse of China as few have seen it before, a surpassingly strange nation, at once admirable and frightening.
