Mysteries are not the genre I go running to when I am looking for the next book to read. But, I have found I enjoy the work of Lisa See. Lisa See writes with so much knowledge of the workings of the Chinese culture and history that I find myself drawn in to the story. Hulan is a, for the lack of a better word, FBI agent for the government of China. She has been asked by a friend that she has not seen in twenty years to investigate the death of her daughter. The mother has been told that her daughter committed suicide, but she is unconvinced. This death leads Hulan into a world of corporate corruption and danger that endangers her unborn child.
