But following a chance encounter in Hong Kong with fellow American Elizabeth, whose son has disappeared, Paul decides to investigate. Along with a detective friend, he risks everything and crosses the border to mainland China, there descending into the criminal underworld where he must confront the dark secrets and corruption hidden beneath the veneer and wealth of the new China. Whispering Shadows is the absorbing tale of one man's search for redemption in a rapidly changing country where the ghosts of the past threaten to engulf the present.
