Read by Laurence Bouvard.
Originally from Massachusetts, Laurence Bouvard trained at LAMDA and made her professional debut in the West End. Her TV appearances include The Tomorrow People and EastEnders. Laurence has recently recorded The Dud Avocado for BBC Radio 4.
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.
Beijing detective Li Yan, now based at the Chinese Embassy in Washington, is dispatched to find out how his fellow countrymen suffocated in a sealed refrigeration unit in southern Texas - only to find himself face to face with the woman who walked out of China, and his life, to return to the US.
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.
