San Francisco, 1989: Forty years after Mao and his People's Liberation Army set poised to change China forever, Dr. Lili Quan prepares for a journey that will change her life forever. To honor her mother's dying wish that Lili 'return home,' Lili reluctantly sets out for China. For Lili, a passionate idealist, this will be an extraordinary trip filled with remarkable discoveries - from meeting and falling in love with Chi-Wen Zhou, a victim of the Cutural Revolution and zealous Taoist, to finding Dr. Ni-Fu Cheng, the grandfather Lili believed had died years ago. But Dr. Cheng has made the most remarkable discovery of all: he's discovered the secret to long life. As Dr. Cheng's only relative, Lili's life is in jeopardy. As greedy and unscrupulous men vie for control of the most earth-shattering discovery of the century, Lili Quan could become a pawn in a deadly and dangerous international game. Before Lili can hold the key to the future, she must unlock the deadly secrets of the past.

Wasn't crazy bad, having some insight into the student revolutions in the late '80's, but overall not very engaging. I was often wondering if San Francisco was so racist and ugly toward the Chinese community (where all of Lili's angst came from). Read full review

I'm not a fan of thrillers and this book reminded me why. That said, it did mix the political landscape of China in 1989 with the plot in a way that didn't seem forced or false. Read full review
