Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Wang, a Chinese-American art historian, dies shortly after a visit to an ancient tomb housing priceless artifacts. Officials diagnose death by duck, a fatal confluence of culture shock and rich cuisine. But Wang's friend Tom Stratton suspects something more sinister, especially after the dead man's brother, a highly placed Party official tries to have him kidnapped. From a nightmarish interrogation to assasination by cobra, A Death in China takes readers on a trip with no rest stops through a world of claustrophobic mistrust and terrifying danger.

From a nightmarish interrogation to assassination by cobra, A Death in China takes readers on a trip with no rest stops through a world of claustrophobic mistrust and terrifying danger.
