Description


Aimee Leduc is happy that her long-time business partner Rene has found a girlfriend. Really, she is. It's not her fault if she can t suppress her doubts about the relationship; Rene is moving way too fast, and Aimee's instincts tell her Meizi, this supposed love of Rene's life, isn t trustworthy. And her misgivings may not be far off the mark. Meizi disappears during a Chinatown dinner to take a phone call and never comes back to the restaurant. Minutes later, the body of a young man, a science prodigy and volunteer at the nearby Musee, is found shrink-wrapped in an alley with Meizi's photo in his wallet.

A missing young woman, an illegal immigrant raid in progress, botched affairs of the heart, dirty policemen, the French secret service, cutting-edge science secrets, and a murderer on the loose what has she gotten herself into? And can she get herself and her friends back out of it all alive?
