Publisher’s description: “Retired cop Robert ‘Lucky’ Lucas’ relaxation is put on hold when his girlfriend Mona’s eighteen-year-old son is critically wounded on the streets of San Francisco in a drive-by shooting. When no arrests are made and there are no suspects, a frustrated Mona asks Lucky to ‘get the people who hurt my son.’ Lucas quickly finds himself an undesirable visitor in the secretive and insulated world of organized crime in San Francisco’s historic Chinatown—a world where extortion, murder, and prostitution are part of daily life and where family secrets reach all the way back to mainland China.”
Setting: San Francisco (Chinatown)
