Jennifer Hastings lives in London. She has not seen or heard from her father for sixteen years. Then she receives word that he is dead, and that his body is being returned from Hong Kong.
On the way to the funeral, Jennifer notices she is being followed by two black limousines. As the service ends, the occupants of the black limousines claim to be working for the government and snatch away the body. Jennifer is devastated and can't understand why anyone would do such a thing.
After visiting the police, her Member of Parliament, and Whitehall, she still has no answers. Everyone is in denial that such a thing could happen. With nowhere else to go, Jennifer believes the answers must lie in Hong Kong.
On the flight there, she meets Reg, a young police officer on his way to begin a position with Hong Kong government. Reg is captivated by Jennifer and asks her out, and the two become romantically involved. Reg wants to help Jennifer but she declines.
Her investigation leaves her physically assaulted, robbed, shot at and nearly drowned. Jennifer finally accepts Reg's offer of help, but will the answers bring comfort or make things worse?
