Description

New mother Heather Rose Popescu had been found battered and unconscious on the kitchen floor of her luxurious Central Park South apartment. Her newborn son is missing, and Anton Popescu, her high-profile attorney husband, seems determined to control the inquiry - and his Chinese wife.For newly appointed Detective Supervisor April Woo, it's a case of potential political dynamite. An outraged community is demanding answers. The mayor is pressuring the department to step up the investigation. April's hostile boss is just waiting for her to fail. And now an examination of the traumatized mother reveals an astonishing fact: Heather Rose never gave birth.If Heather Rose is not the baby's mother, where did the infant come from - and disappear to? April's search for the truth leads her from the high-rent districts of Manhattan to the sweatshops and tenements of Chinatown. Here, back in her old precinct, she will be drawn into a maze of deception and violence as she probes the lives of the mysterious Popescu family and Heather Rose's Chinese kin. But for April the case has yet another layer of significance as it forces her to face the varying degrees of abuse against women, and examine her own role as a Chinese-American female in a white male world.show more
