Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“See paints a fascinating portrait of a complex and enigmatic society, in which nothing is ever quite as it appears, and of the people, peasant and aristocrat alike, who are bound by its subtle strictures.”

-San Diego Union-Tribune

While David Stark is asked to open a law office in Beijing, his lover, detective Liu Hulan, receives an urgent message from an old friend imploring her to investigate the suspicious death of her daughter, who worked for a toy company about to be sold to Davids new client, Tartan Enterprises.

Despite Davids protests, Hulan goes undercover at the toy factory in the rural village of Da Shui, deep in the heart of China. It is a place that forces Hulan to face a past she has long been running from. Once there, rather than finding answers to the girls death, Hulan unearths more questions, all of which point to possible crimes committed by Davids client. Suddenly Hulan and David find themselves on opposing sides: One of them is trying to expose a company and unearth a killer, while the other is ethically bound to protect his client. As pressures mount and danger increases, Hulan and David uncover universal truths about good and evil, right and wrong-and the sometimes subtle lines that distinguish them.

“[See] illuminates tradition and change, Western and Eastern cultural differences. . . . All this in the middle of her thriller which is also about greed, corruption, abuse of the disadvantaged, the desperation of those on the bottom of the food chain, and love.”

-The Tennessean

“Sophisticated . . . graceful . . . Sees picture of contemporary Chinas relationship with the United States is aptly played out through her characters.”

-Los Angeles Times

“Immediate, haunting and exquisitely rendered.”

-San Francisco Chronicle

Synopsis:

It Begins when an old friend from a village deep within China's interior asks Beijing police detective Liu Hulan to find out the truth about her daughter's suspicious suicide. Hulan can't refuse — even though the case will take her deep into her own buried past, and into the heart of a dangerous mystery — and bring her and her American lover, attorney David Stark, closer than they ever imagined. To find the truth and catch a killer, David and Hulan must decide whom to trust and where their greatest duty lies — dangerous decisions that could cost them their love and their lives.
