This artifact is not only an object of great monetary value but one that is emblematic of the very soul of China. Everyonefrom the Chinese government, to a religious cult, to an unscrupulous American art collectorwants this relic, and some, it seems, may be willing to kill to get it. At stake in this investigation is control of Chinas history and national pride, and even stability between China and the United States.The troubled Hulan must overcome her own fears of failure, while David tries desperately to break through the shell that has built up around his wife.
