An electrifying thriller debut set in modern China, in a world of artists, paranoid revolutionaries and government conspiracies...

First she tried to start over. Now she’s just trying to survive.

Ellie Cooper’s tour of duty in Iraq left her with a damaged leg, a faithless husband, and a desperate need to get away. In Beijing, she falls for charismatic Chinese artist Lao Zhang but, after the arrival of a mysterious guest, he disappears...

Now she’s alone, in a country she barely knows, falling down a rabbit hole of conspiracies from which she can’t escape...
