From the Publisher
Annotation The titular figure of this well-crafted mystery is a deceased Chinese dissident who was killed at Tiananmen Square. Chau Chun, who was known as "Ghost Hero," used artistry to disguise political messages. Now, years later, rumors are tearing through the art world regarding some long-lost Chau pieces that have supposedly resurfaced. Collector Jeff Dunbar remains very skeptical, but he hires Lydia Chin and Bill Smith to find out everything they can about these works. As their investigation unfolds, Lydia and Bill connect with another PI, who was hired to do the same job for someone else. Things just don't add up. Is Dunbar really who he says he is? What will Lydia and Bill really discover during unpacking this case? With art prices what they are, the stakes are certainly very high for someone. GHOST HERO is the award-winning author S.J. Rozan's 11th novel starring these charming Chinatown investigators, and things just get better and better with each installment.
Editors Note After a dry spell and verging on desperate for work, Chinese- American P.I. Lydia Chin agrees to take a case different from her usual fare. A man calling himself Jeff Dunbar hires her to track down a rumor about a very unusual Chinese painter. Contemporary Chinese painting is blazing hot in the art world and no one is hotter than Chau Chun ? Ghost Hero Chau. A brilliant and widely-recognized artist, known for mixing classical forms and contemporary political comment, his works are highly prized. The rumor of new paintings by Chau is racing through the Manhattan art world. There's only one problem ? Ghost Hero Chau has been dead for twenty years. Something is clearly amiss. Not only is the Ghost Hero dead, but Lydia's client isn't who he claims to be. And she's not the only PI looking into the case?Bill Smith and Lydia discover that Jack Lee, also Chinese-American, a PI and an art expert as well ?has been hired to chase down the same rumors. What starts as buzz over new paintings by a dead artist quickly becomes something far more complex and dangerous, involving secrets that more than one person seems willing to go to extremes to protect.
