About the Book
Shanghai, 1932

The city is booming. It's the Paris of Asia—wealthy, sophisticated, and fun—the most international city in the Far East. But beneath the surface fear of war is mounting. With spies and counterspies on every side and their masters pressing hard for information, violence is increasing. Jake Greenberg feels the tension growing in the city. Jake, an American expatriate, and his Chinese partner run a popular boutique casino. One night Jake's life is shaken when he gets a desperate phone call from one of his oldest friends, the head of security at the American Consulate. His friend needs help. An American undercover agent, working with the Consulate has been killed. There is a traitor, his friend is sure—a senior American official. He doesn't know who he can trust. That same night his friend is also murdered. Yet the Consulate is unwilling to investigate. Seeking justice for his friend, Jake is drawn into the dark world of espionage, becoming a target himself, as he gets closer to the heart of the conspiracy.
