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.

    "Cultural practices Investigated"

    A good novella that lives you wanting more, and amuse-bouche, with no main course a good story with and abrupt ending.

    "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.

    Story
    "1hour 9mins - feels like I've been cheated!"

    Have enjoyed listening to others in the series, but couldn't believe it when this one ended. Thought there must have been a mistake, but no, it really is that short!
