With her mastery of police procedure and unflinching take on race relations, Leslie Glass is one of today’s most original female suspense writers. April Woo’s investigation of a child’s disappearance in New York’s Chinatown takes a nasty turn when suspicion falls on the wealthy parents. The father is hostile, the mother is unconscious, the police are without a lead, and all the pressure is on April. The facts don’t add up and April’s only hope of cracking the case is to find the child’s real mother. Everyone involved is clearly hiding something, but is bound to silence by fear or guilt or both. With the reporters, her superior officers, and her own mother pressuring her, April is stuck in the middle of the kind of high-profile case most cops despise– the kind of case perfect for cool-headed Sergeant Woo.
