Description

From the author of Final Target and Power Blind comes the fourth book in the high stakes thriller series featuring private investigator Graham Gage. For over thirty years Graham Gage has faced down enemies both near and far, but now he faces one from within. Diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, Gage must delay treatment in order to repay the woman who saved his life in San Francisco's Chinatown thirty years earlier when he was homicide detective. She has come out of hiding after her troubled teenage son was ensnared and killed in a multimillion dollar microchip robbery executed by the United Bamboo Triad. With the FBI straight-jacketed and despite his plaguing symptoms, Gage heads to Hong Kong, then on to Thailand, and finally to China to untangle a fast moving and brilliantly orchestrated deal bartering the chips for a billion dollars of China White heroin. Racing ahead of the disease, he puts in place a scheme to tie the conspiracy directly to the US-based godfather behind her son's death. With his plan in place, Gage returns to the US, hands off the case to the FBI and begins a highly toxic treatment, but is soon drawn into a deadly confrontation with the godfather himself.
An electrifying, harrowing thriller, White Ghost, will leave readers hanging in suspense until the final shocking moments.

Back cover copy

For more than thirty years Graham Gage has faced down enemies both near and far.

But now he faces one from within . . .

It has been decades since private investigator Graham Gage worked the neon streets and shadowed alleys of San Francisco's Chinatown. Now the death of a troubled teenager during a multimillion-dollar microchip robbery brings him back to the threshold of the violent underworld of Asian organized crime.

With the FBI straightjacketed and his own body wracked by a life-threatening illness, Gage heads to Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Bangkok to untangle a brilliantly orchestrated and fast-moving conspiracy. The uniqueness of the crime requires Gage to recruit an equally unique group of collaborators--a corrupt People's Liberation Army general, a retired Taiwanese intelligence agent, a Thai-Chinese gangster, and a former Golden Triangle drug trafficker--at least two of whom are treacherous enough to betray the rest and exploit Gage's means for their own ends.

The route to justice is both twisting and perilous, for the mastermind behind the conspiracy has insulated himself with a willingness to murder even those closest to him. It won't be possible for Gage to simply follow a trail, he'll need to blaze one of his own. And the question that remains isn't whether Gage has the skills to do it, but whether he has strength enough--and time.
