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