Randy Michael SignorPearson’s Seattle police detective Lou Boldt is rapidly growing into one of the better fictional detectives ever penned. Boldt cares about the victims of the crimes he investigates. The victims in this case are Chinese women who pay brokers in order to come to the United States, are smuggled into the Seattle area inside shipping containers and forced to work in sweatshops, literally chained to their sewing machines. One such container ends up in Puget Sound, and one of the women is dead, thus starting a homicide investigation.
But it’s a whole lot more complicated than that. The Immigration and Naturalization Service is involved; a powerful local Chinese power broker floats on the periphery; a television reporter goes underground and disappears; and her half-sister—the star news anchor—takes it on herself to pursue her own investigation. Corruption is everywhere. This effort treats Pearson’s fans to another engaging story and another visit with their favorite detective.
