When the mutilated and dismembered bodies of eighteen women
are discovered in a mass grave in Shanghai, Li is sent to
establish if the corpses relate to an unsolved murder in
Beijing, and finds the most horrifying catalogue of killings
ever uncovered in the Middle Kingdom.
Once more, Margaret's mercurial relationship with Li
threatens their professional collaboration. Margaret, having
just suffered the heartbreak of burying her father, arrives
in Shanghai to find her partnership with Li threatened by
Born in the Year of the Tiger, Mei-Ling seems to have her
claws firmly fixed in Li. How can Margaret, a mere "foreign
devil," compete with Mei-Ling, deputy head of Shanghai's
serious crime squad? But when it becomes clear that the
murdered women have been subjected to "live" autopsies, the
three realize they are tracking a monster. And the closer
they get to this ruthlessly cold-blooded killer, the closer
they come to realizing their own personal nightmares.
