From semitones to Semillon Blanc, Li-an’s luck changes tune when she bags a job abroad. What’s the catch? She is.

Chicago, 1980. Cold, poor and starving, immigrant Li-an is a bad con artist and a brilliant musician. When she wows a mysterious Italian businessman in the Drake Hotel with her piano-pounding, she’s snapped up to play in the sin city of Macau. In a heartbeat, she’s there. With new killer clothes, her own pavilion in a private estate and a dinner show, she finds easy livin’ not that easy. Trafficking and tongs sure ain’t music to her ears. She’s only just left her life of crime by coming to this beat. When her employer collapses in the pool at a party, Li-an knows it’s no accident.

She’s trapped with no employment and no ticket home. Who is he and is it even a pizza restaurant? When danger comes pounding at the pavilion, Li-an desperately needs to save herself from the island’s dark undercurrents. Will she find a way to escape alive?

Heart of Glass is a standalone and also a sequel to White Crane Strikes. Fans of Lehane, Hammett and Chandler will love this wise-cracking and streetsmart thriller.
