The Water Dragon
It's Hong Kong in August and DI John Chambers is feeling the heat. The trail of the murder suspect he followed to Hong Kong has gone cold, his boss wants him back in London and another dead body has turned up in Mong Kok. Meanwhile, his attraction to Detective Lucy Li is not helping his usually impressive powers of deduction.
While a killer documents details of elaborate preparations, murders and subsequent media coverage of several gruesome crimes, DI Chambers, seconded to the Hong Kong police, has teamed up with local Detective Li to search for the prime suspect in London murder case. However, the pair inadvertently discover a link between a seemingly random number of deaths in Hong Kong. These victims include a young man bludgeoned to death in Kowloon Park’s aviary, a minor Triad found drowned in his bathtub in Mong Kok surrounded by dead rats and the body of a retired soldier discovered on a secluded beach in Lantau Island near a herd of feral water buffalo.
Chambers and Li have to find the killer before he strikes again at the celebrations marking the beginning of the forthcoming Chinese New Year – the year of the Water Dragon.
