New York: Vantage Press, 2005. ix+225p., author's note, very good first edition inscribed and signed by the San Francisco author, in pictorial wraps. Novel of love, high-technology and murder set in modern China, and a better-than-average Vantage offering. "Despite the fictitious names, characters, firms and organizations, over half of this story is true. This book would have been written as a memoir had I not considered the risk of being blocked from entering my motherland again."
