About the Book

“Who was that on the telephone, Honey? It sure sounded serious.” Terri Watson said to her husband Rick.

“It is serious. That was John Alworth. He is in China. He desperately needs our help.”

Those five little words will send Rick and Terri 7,812 miles halfway around the world from their home in South Carolina to Shanghai, China to save their best friend from a certain death sentence in a Chinese prison.

Follow Rick and Terri as they search for clues to find John innocent of the crime. Experience Rick and Terri’s despair as each potential clue is discarded and the evidence mounts that John is guilty.

The story spirals deeper and deeper into web after web of Chinese intrigue as Rick and Terri work with Feng Shou, Shanghai Chief Superintendent of Police to determine what fatal flaw in the design will keep the investors from obtaining the riches they had planned.

Who will stop at nothing to assure the product is produced including killing to hide the evidence?

Will the fatal flaw destroy Gregory Brightson’s company? Will he take steps to start production on time, flaw be damned?

John’s life is in Rick and Terri’s hands. Will they find the evidence in time to save him? Will the killer make the fatal mistake and unmask themselves saving untold lives by stopping the production of a killer product?

It is in you, the readers hands to discover!
