"Rozan again proves that the private detective novel thrives in the 21st century." -- Oline Cogdill, The Sun-Sentinel on On the Line American-Born Chinese PI Lydia Chin is called in on what appears to be a simple case.  Jeff Dunbar, art world insider, wants her to track down a rumor.  Contemporary Chinese painting is sizzling hot on the art scene and no one is hotter than Chau Chun, known as the Ghost Hero.  A talented and celebrated ink painter, Chau's highly-prized work mixes classical forms and modern political commentary.  The rumor of new paintings by Chau is shaking up the art world.  There's only one problem -- Ghost Hero Chau has been dead for twenty years, killed in the 1989 Tianamen Square uprising.

But not only is Ghost Hero Chau long dead, but Lydia's client isn't who he claims to be either. And she's not the only PI hired to look for these paintings.  Lydia and her partner, Bill Smith, soon learn that someone else -- Jack Lee: PI, art expert, and, like Lydia, American Born Chinese -- is also on the case.  What starts as rumors over new paintings by a dead artist quickly becomes something far more desperate -- a high-stakes crisis the PI's will find themselves risking everything to resolve.
