Summary

"A WINNER." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"FIENDISHLY CLEVER." --THE TIMES
In this heart-stopping installment of Peter May's award-winning China Thrillers, the Beijing Olympics are the setting for fierce competition, national pride--and murder.

THE SUFFERER
A prodigious Chinese swimmer kills himself on the eve of the Beijing Olympics. Days later, a champion weightlifter suffers a fatal heart attack prior to competition.

THE LISTENER

Detective Li Yan senses a conspiracy surrounding the fatalities, and finds a female athlete willing to talk. But she will only trust one person: Li's fiancée, Margaret Campbell.

THE RUNNER

When Campbell's contact herself vanishes, the gun is fired on a race against time. And Li must now outrun--and outwit--an enemy bent on pushing him beyond endurance.
