Instead he is ordered to lead the investigation into the kidnapping of Amy Tang - the illegitimate daughter of a major player in the skin trade, CK Leung.

Nine-year-old Amy is the third child to be kidnapped and held for a vast sum of money, but while the other two children were released after the vast ransom was paid, Amy is still being held captive.
Mann's investigation takes him to London, where he teams up with DC Becky Stamp.
Within days of his arrival, an arson attack kills twelve women and children.
The charred bodies of the victims are found chained to their beds - their injuries rendering them identifiable...What is the link between the kidnapping of Amy in Hong Kong and the deaths of these women and children and can Mann discover the truth before it's too late.
Prepare to be terrorised all over again with this disturbingly addictive thriller from the writer hailed as the female James Patterson.

Review by LustyRebel
A terrible book.The subject matter is exploitative but can be forgiven if the book is well written and makes you think about the subject.This book does neither. It is badly written with cardboard characters you cannot empathise with and so care little for their fate.I finished the book to the end, not from desire but more from curiosity to see if thw situations could become even more hackeyed. They did.
