A heart-pounding case from one of crime fiction's most acclaimed series proves once again "there is no thriller writer today like Jeffery Deaver" (San Jose Mercury News).

Forensics expert Lincoln Rhyme and his protegee Amelia Sachs have been recruited by the FBI to capture "the Ghost," a homicidal immigrant smuggler. But when they corner him aboard a cargo ship, the bust goes disastrously wrong and the Ghost escapes. Now, the killer must eliminate the only witnesses--two families who jumped ship and vanished into New York City's Chinatown. Against a ruthless adversary, Rhyme and Sachs race to find the families before the Ghost can silence them. . . .
