"In this gripping novel, homicide detective Lou Boldt is back and entering dark new territory. A shipping container washed ashore leads Seattle television new anchor Stevie McNeal and her reporter friend, Melissa, on the trail of a scam involving the importation of illegal aliens. A career stepping-stone for McNeal, the investigation puts her at cross-purposes with Seattle Police Department's Lou Boldt and Sergeant John LaMoia. When Melissa disappears, perhaps at the hands of the Chinese Triad, McNeal turns from foe to ally and teams up with the detectives on an investigation that takes them from Seattle's docklands to the horrifying setting of a sweatshop employing slaves." -- Back cover.

Entertaining and well-written. The subject matter didn't quite appeal to me but it was still a decent book to read

Fast-paced Seattle-based police procedural. Have enjoyed Pearson's incorporation of multifaceted Seattle society and economy, e.g., human trafficking in this one. Maybe he will write something about Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos next !
