Cases don’t come much colder than this –the year was 1937, and as Japanese forces closed in on what is now Beijing, the teenage daughter of an expatriate Englishman was found, horribly murdered, in a neighborhood abutting the city’s opium dens. War brushed the investigation aside, and Pamela Werner’s killer was never found. Now Paul French picks up the trail in an atmospheric work of history and detection.
