the firemaker
audio book - buy now from Isis Publishing

Three murders. Two lovers. One burning truth.
Margaret Campbell is a forensic pathologist from Chicago. Li Yan is a Beijing detective with a horribly burned corpse on his hands.
She has a broken life behind her and a lonely future, dedicated to her profession, ahead. He has survived two decades of violent change by marrying himself to a career, which now promises, at last, to bring him the respected place in Chinese society that his family lost in the Cultural Revolution.
Neither of them is ready for the consequences of asking the wrong questions about the dead man; the ones that lead to the terrifying truth.

the fourth sacrifice
audio book - buy now from Isis Publishing


The first three victims were drugged, tied, labelled with a single word and a single number - then expertly beheaded. The fourth victim was dispatched the same way but unlike the others he was an American diplomat. No one knows why Yuan Tao returned to Beijing after a lifetime in America, why he took a lowly job at the American embassy, nor why he died in the same bizarre way as three very different Chinese men.
 Compelled to work together, Margaret Campbell and Li Yan feel the overwhelming attraction that nearly destroyed them both when they first met. But now Margaret has another admirer and Li has a family tragedy that demands all his heart.
 Reluctantly, they tease out the killer's secrets. But the closer they come to the truth, the closer they come to a killer who is prepared to sacrifice anyone to conceal it.

Unabridged:12 Cassettes Running Time: approx. 13 hrs 30 mins

When the mutilated and dismembered bodies of eighteen women are discovered in a mass grave in Shanghai, detective Li Yan is sent to establish if the corpses relate to an unsolved murder in Beijing.
Once more, American pathologist Margaret Campbell finds her personal relationship with Li compromising their professional collaboration. She arrives in Shanghai to find her partnership with Li threatened by another woman - the deputy head of Shanghai's serious crime squad. Faced with the grisly proposition that the murdered women have been subjected to 'live' autopsies, the three realise they are tracking a monster of inhuman capacity. And the closer they get to the killer, the closer they come to realising their own personal nightmares.

American pathologist Margaret Campbell returns from China to her home soil only to be faced with a truck full of dead Chinese and an inevitable confrontation with her past.

Working together again and wrestling with the demons of their past, Li and Margaret discover that the immigrants were unwitting carriers of a deadly cargo. They must race against time to defuse a biological time-bomb that threatens to wipe out not only their future but that of mankind.

the runner
audio book - buy now from Isis Publishing

A top Chinese swimmer kills himself on the eve of an international event. An Olympic weightlifter dies in the arms of his Beijing mistress. Both men's deaths are connected to an inexplicable series of "accidents" that have taken the lives of some of China's best athletes.
Detective Li Yan finds himself in charge of what could be his last investigation for the Beijing police. Hampered by uncooperative officials, dogged by a vindictive rival for his job, his only hope of a breakthrough is a champion runner, the sole member of the Chinese athletics team who seems willing to talk. But she will only talk to American psychologist Margaret Campbell ­ and now the runner has disappeared.
