Publisher's Summary

Eighteen mutilated women in a Shanghai mass grave. But this is only the beginning of a horrific case for Investigator Li Yan and Mei Ling, head of Shanghai's serious crime squad. Ling is a formidable woman, and she appears to threaten Li Yan's relationship with pathologist Margaret Campbell. But when Campbell discovers that the victims were subjected to live autopsies, she knows she'll need all the help she can get. The Killing Room is the third in the acclaimed China series from Peter May, author of Runaway, Entry Island and the internationally bestselling Lewis Trilogy.

Biology is information, information is a commodity

One more good instalment in the China thrillers now we are in a different city with a different woman; plus Margaret, making this investigation that is a political hot potato even hotter, Li Yan has many problems to resolve in his personal life and his political acumen has to be sharper than ever. The discovery of eighteen bodies and the mysteries they hold make for interesting dilemmas about societies and cultures, money and political power, in a country where the party and the oligarchs are closely related.
Entertaining and thoughtful, gruesome and unflinching stories of culture clashes of our time.
