Publisher's Summary

Li Yan and Margaret Campbell return in a new story, years after the dramatic conclusion of Chinese Whispers.
'I saw your missing girl at a ghost wedding last week. She was the bride.'
It has been a whirlwind few years for Li Yan and Margaret Campbell. Nowadays, both are busy juggling their huge professional workloads - Li as the newly promoted chief of Beijing's serious crime squad and Campbell as lecturer at the University of Public Security - with the day-to-day raising of their young son, Li Jon.
When a desperate mother appeals to Campbell's own maternal instincts, Li agrees to look into the disappearance of a 17-year-old Beijing girl, Jiang Meilin. Yet Li's investigation soon turns from a favour into a full-scale murder enquiry. And when he receives an anonymous note, he learns Jiang Meilin's death is tied to a dangerous underground trade and a dark marital rite from China's past.

Too short

Pity so short and no further development of key characters. Really enjoyed the background info on Chinese history, culture and belief systems in the series.
