Publication: Macmillan, 2007, London
First edition. Fine in fine dust jacket. Ex-cop Bierce has been in prison for over twenty years following his conviction for the brutal murders of his wife and son. He has no memory of the tragedy and has never been able to say with certainty that he didn't do it - except he cannot imagine why on earth he would have killed them. Inexplicably moments before his execution, he is released. He meets the beautiful, feisty, half-Chinese Alice Loong, who is seeking answers to her own troubled past. Alice guides Bierce through the strange new world of the twenty-first century, but what secrets is she hiding? Pursued by mysterious enemies who are convinced that Bierce knows more than he is telling about his wife's death, the pair embark on a dangerous race against time to uncover the real truth about the events of that fateful day.
