A shipping container washed ashore leads Seattle television news anchor Stevie McNeal and reporter friend Melissa on the trail of a scare involving the importation of illegal aliens. A career stepping-stone for McNeal, the investigation puts her at cross-purposes with the 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 offices of the INS.

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 !
