Paul Leibovitz was once an ambitious advisor, dedicated father, and loving husband. But after living for nearly thirty years in Hong Kong, personal tragedy strikes and Paul's marriage unravels in the fallout. When he makes a fleeting connection with Elizabeth, a distressed American woman on the verge of collapse, his life is thrown into turmoil. Less than twenty-four hours later, Elizabeth's son is found dead in Shenzhen, and Paul, invigorated by a newfound purpose, sets out to investigate the murder on his own. As Paul, Elizabeth, and a detective friend descend deeper into the Shenzhen underworld they discover dark secrets hidden beneath China's booming new wealth. In a country where rich businessmen with expensive degrees can corrupt the judicial system, the potential for evil abounds. 'An absorbing mystery set in a Hong Kong tourists only glimpse-the dark underside of a money-making beehive trying to find its place in a cynically corrupt new China. Vivid and knowing' - Joseph Kanon, New York Times bestselling author of Leaving Berlin 'A stunning mystery in which a twisted murder investigation pulls back the curtain on a country whose culture and history have been shaped as much by Western capitalism as its own communism. Whispering Shadows is a thoughtful, moving, and profoundly revelatory read' - Attica Locke, author of Black Water Rising, a finalist for the Orange Prize and Los Angeles Times Book Awards
