When the crew of a ship carrying hundreds of Chinese refugees is murdered, PI Cape Weathers, a former cop, immediately suspects it's the work of a professional assassin. But Cape's investigation is hampered by the fact that his partner, Sally (who happens to be a trained assassin), is missing. Soon Cape is locked in a deadly battle with the ruthless Chinese organized crime organization, the Triads. It's an intriguing story, marred somewhat by overwriting. Still, there are flashes of flair and inspiration in this promising first novel. David Pitt
