No Colder Place
His bricklaying is a little rusty, but passable as he checks out the foreman who's under suspicion. A crane operator has disappeared–along with some heavy machinery.
But when a well-orchestrated riot causes the foreman's “accidental” death, Smith plunges into a morass of bribery, blackmail and blood looking for answers.
With the help of his Chinese-American partner Lydia Chin, he follows a trail of twisted loyalties, old-fashioned greed and organized crime to its heart-stopping conclusion.
Murder–with no end in sight.
