Description
"The body of a woman who worked the overnight shift at the factory of a massive American tech company near Hong Kong is found in the marshes, bearing odd markings. Mei, an inspector for the Guangdong Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, is called out in the middle of the night to investigate--only to confront the most shocking discovery imaginable: the dead woman's face is identical to her own. At the same time, a retired American operative is secretly looking into the suicides coming out of the factory. When he and Mei encounter each other, both are surprised to learn they had no idea of the truth. With that begins a full-throttle thriller catalyzed by long-buried secrets rooted in the turbulent history of China--and a stunning and dramatic family story"--
