While investigating two bodies found in Chinatown’s historic Tong battleground, NYPD Detective Jack Yu’s pursuit takes him from New York’s Chinatown to Seattle’s Chinatown, tracking a cold-blooded Chinese-American gangster and a mysterious Hong Kong femme fatale
The bodies of a young man and woman are discovered at an address on the Bloody Angle, Chinatown’s historic Tong battleground. NYPD Detective Jack Yu had thought he was done working in Chinatown, but old allegiances pull him back in. Is it a simple murder-suicide? The grieving families want him to keep a lid on any stories that might further tarnish their family names—but the Golden Galaxy club, where the young woman worked, is made for scandal. Drugs, snakeheads, smuggled prostitutes: “Girls don’t last long before getting dirty.”
As a puzzling web of links between the murders and the criminal underworld reveals itself, Yu’s investigation takes him across the country to another Chinatown, this one in Seattle. In the new city, stymied by the uncooperative local cops, he tracks a cold-blooded Chinese American gangster and a mysterious Hong Kong femme fatale.
