Summary

"A WINNER." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY


"FIENDISHLY CLEVER." --THE TIMES


In this heart-stopping installment of Peter May's award-winning China Thrillers, the Beijing Olympics are the setting for fierce competition, national pride--and murder.


THE SUFFERER


A prodigious Chinese swimmer kills himself on the eve of the Beijing Olympics. Days later, a champion weightlifter suffers a fatal heart attack prior to competition.

THE LISTENER

Detective Li Yan senses a conspiracy surrounding the fatalities, and finds a female athlete willing to talk. But she will only trust one person: Li's fiancée, Margaret Campbell.

THE RUNNER

When Campbell's contact herself vanishes, the gun is fired on a race against time. And Li must now outrun--and outwit--an enemy bent on pushing him beyond endurance.

Author Bio: Peter May

Author Bio: Peter May

Peter May, born and raised in Scotland, was an award-winning journalist at the age of twenty-one and a published novelist at twenty-six. When his first book was adapted as a major drama series for the BBC, he quit journalism and during the high-octane fifteen years that followed, became one of Scotland’s most successful television dramatists. He created three prime-time drama series, presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland as script editor and producer, and worked on more than 1,000 episodes of ratings-topping drama before deciding to leave television to return to his first love, writing novels. He has won several literature awards in France, received the USA’s Barry Award for The Blackhouse, the first in his internationally bestselling Lewis Trilogy; and in 2014 Entry Island won the Deanston’s Scottish Crime Novel of the Year and the ITV Specsavers Crime Thriller Book Club Best Read of the Year Award.
