Lydia Chin and Bill Smith have been hired by one of the most respected figures in New York City's Chinatown, for what appears to be a simple task - deliver a family heirloom to the young grandson of the recently deceased business colleague of Grandfather Gao. Before they can deliver the heirloom, the grandson is kidnapped and two separate ransom demands are made. While the family of the kidnapped boy tries to freeze them out, Lydia and Bill must quickly learn their way around a city where the rules are different, the stakes are high, and the cost of failure is too dire to imagine. Note: this title is originally published as "Reflecting the Sky" in the US.

"I've loved Lydia Chin and Bill Smith for years." -- Val McDermid "This is a beautifully written book with a sophisticated plot, rich in both action and atmosphere ... this could well be Rozan's break-out book" Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A tremendously satisfying book" Chicago Tribune "A reader would be hard-pressed to find a more likable or more disparate duo than the middle-aged, rawboned, moody and sarcastic Smith and the 20-something, small, agile and quick-witted Chin" Los Angeles Times "As usual, it's a fast-paced, rip-roaring ride. Great characters, intricate plotting, and an exotic locale, beautifully described - Who could ask for anything more? This is definitely a don't-miss book in a don't miss series" Booklist (starred review)
