Publisher’s Synopsis (from its website)
Max, a lawyer for the Canadian Department of Justice, is losing his mind. In one nightmarish week, Max has been shot, punched, stabbed, led on a wild goose chase, and has even seen a ghost. All of this was set in motion by Sylvia, an elusive figure who enters his life and charges Max with the task of finding Tommy Jade, a Chinese immigrant from the 1920s. Dragged further into the history of the Chinese-Canadian struggle for redress and into the lives of those involved, Max discovers that not only is his life in danger, but also his son’s.
