Summary
"The system has no place for a cop who puts justice above the interests of the Party. It's a miracle that I survived as long as I did." *** For years, Chen Cao managed to balance the interests of the Communist Party and the promises made by his job. He was both a Chief Inspector of Special Investigations of the Shanghai Police Department and the deputy party secretary of the bureau. He was considered a potential rising star in the Party until, after one too many controversial cases that embarrassed powerful elements in the Party, Chen Cao found himself neutralized. Under the guise of a brilliant promotion, to a new position with no power, he's stripped of his titles and his job duties, discredited and isolated. But that's still not enough, as it becomes increasingly clear that someone is attempting to have him killed--and quietly. Chen Cao is technically in charge of the corruption case of a "Red Prince"--a powerful, high Party figure who embodies the ruthless ambition, greed, and corruption that is increasingly evident in the new China. With no power, few allies, and with his own reputation and life on the line, the former Inspector Chen is facing the most dangerous case of his career"--
