From the author of Hanging Devils, one of The Guardian's top ten Asian crime novels, comes the long-awaited follow-up.
When Xia Zhe, an ambitious trader at a state-owned securities company, is indicted for corporate fraud, lawyer Hong Jun takes on the case at the request of the young man's father. But as the trial date looms, it becomes clear that this case of avarice and ill-gotten gains is far from black and white.
Hong Jun discovers a web of family secrets and hidden motives leading back to the turbulence of the Cultural Revolution. What he doesn't count on is that, in dredging up these long-dormant histories, he must face the shadows of his own past to get to the truth.
