It's 1929 in Harbin China and Borya Melnikov is a mixed-race patrolman in Harbin’s Special District police force paired with the legendary senior Inspector Chinn to solve a grisly murder. The trail leads through the city’s most upscale boulevards to its seediest boroughs and even to the frontiers of Manchuria. As they unravel the deadly mystery, danger abounds in the form of ethnic prejudices, local power struggles, and a growing Red terror campaign. And with a brewing border war with the Soviet Union fueling the instability of the region, the clock is running out to solve this dark and prominent murder. Can they survive long enough to solve the murder?
