"Rozan again proves that the private detective novel thrives in the 21st century." -- Oline Cogdill, The Sun-Sentinel on On the Line

American-Born Chinese PI Lydia Chinnbsp;is called in on whatnbsp;appears to be anbsp;simple case. nbsp;Jeff Dunbar, art world insider, wants her to track down a rumor.nbsp; Contemporary Chinese painting is sizzling hot on the art scene and no one is hotter than Chau Chun, known as the Ghost Hero. nbsp;A talented and celebrated ink painter, Chau's highly-prized work mixes classical forms and modern political commentary.nbsp; The rumor of new paintings by Chau is shaking up the art world. nbsp;There's only one problem - Ghost Hero Chau has been dead for twenty years, killed in the 1989 Tianamen Square uprising.

But not only is Ghost Hero Chau long dead, but Lydia's client isn'tnbsp;who he claims to be either. And she's not the only PI hired to look for these paintings.nbsp; Lydia and her partner, Bill Smith, soon learn that someone else - Jack Lee: PI, art expert, and, like Lydia, American Born Chinesenbsp;- is also on the case.nbsp;nbsp;What starts as rumors over new paintings by a dead artist quickly becomes something farnbsp;more desperatenbsp;- a high-stakesnbsp;crisis the PI's will find themselves risking everything to resolve.
