Présentation de l'éditeur
THE EXPLOSIVE FINAL CHAPTER IN THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED CHINA SERIES, FROM THE BESTSELLING RICHARD AND JUDY AUTHOR OF THE BLACKHOUSE.
His victims are young, beautiful and coldly mutilated. He calls himself the Beijing Ripper. Li Yan, head of Beijing's serious crime squad, must stop him.
Just as pathologist Margaret Campbell finds an insight into the killer's sick signature, Li receives a letter from the killer, betraying his cruel intentions.
There's no way Li can misinterpret the Ripper's motives: he wants to tear Li and Campbell's lives apart, and write the darkest chapter in Beijing's history.
