A vehicle crammed with dozens of dead Chinese immigrants is found in Southern Texas. Pathologist Margaret Campbell must put aside her horror and find out why.
Detective Li Yan - an even more unwelcome memory for Campbell - has arrived stateside to investigate a link in the case to a lucrative trade in illegal labourers.
Yan and Campbell will soon find that the crime scene hides another secret: a biological time bomb linking traffickers, politicians and migrants in Beijing, Washington and Texas - posing multiple countries one very singular threat.

Really enjoyable book and series. The twists and turns, though in places predictable, are fast paced and give the reader new philosophical and scientific avenues to explore and question within themselves. The love story lines are certainly not May's strongest areas of writing and characters are often squarely fixed into their stereotypes, but he provides a great piece of escapism for all to enjoy.

okay, just confirmed my view of the China series
A very boring and predictable story. The character of Margaret has become rather pathetic and unbelievable, an insult to professional women working in male-dominated work environments. The relationship between Margaret and Lee is unrealistic and the sexual encounter using the horse analogy was cringeworthy.
I've listened to the early China stories and as they have progressed I've become more and more irritated by the characters and their unbelievable behavioural characteristics and stupidity.
