Summary
Nestles on a remote hilltop on an outlying island in Hong Kong lives Paul Leibovitz, a once ambitous adviser and devoted family man. The isolation suits his mood, now forever dampened by the devastating breakdown of his family. A chance encounter iwth a distressed American woman ,Elizabeth, whose son has gone missing in mainland China, threatens to upend his solitude. Yet he feels compelled to help her solve the mystery behind his disappearance. As Paul, Elizabeth, and a detective friend descend deeper in the Shenzhen underwold, against the wishes of a woman with whom Paul has had a growing emotional connection, they discover dark secrets-- vestiges of the Cultural Revolution, which lie hidden beneath China's booming new wealth. In a country where power can be bought and it seems as if some will stop at nothing to put the past behind them, Paul learns that the potential for evil abounds. Part love story, part crime thriller, Whispering Shadows is the captivating tale of one man's desperate search for redemption within the vise of a world superpower."--back cover
