(From the publisher):
When a beautiful young Chinese woman living in New York City named Jin Li agrees to take a car ride with two illegal Mexican women to Brooklyn late one night, little does she know that in minutes she will be running for her life.
Thus begins the story that delivers a powerhouse narrative laced with the sexual energy, edgy street mood, criminal intrigue, and juxtapositions of high and low that is New York today. Arcing from $40 million Manhattan apartments to an old-time coffee shop off Fifth Avenue to Yankee Stadium to the dark edges of Brooklyn and onward to the wealthy hideaways of the Hamptons, this novel spins a tale of global intrigue that reveals New York in all its twenty-first century splendor, greed, violence, and desire.
Why is Jin Li running for her life? Because the young woman is not exactly who she claims to be, and knows things she should not. The people desperately interested in her fate soon include a profane and aggressive hedge-fund billionaire; a sadistic goon who likes to spike people's drinks with concoctions of his own devising; an outsized woman of capacious desires who owns a Brooklyn check-cashing operation; a talented, high-powered Manhattan executive with a very expensive problem he needs to hide; a ruthless criminal speculator in the Chinese stock markets; a brilliant NYPD detective lying on his deathbed; and, above all, Jin Li's ex-boyfriend Ray, a quiet man with disturbing scars and a past he won't discuss.
