"Another fabulous Dirk and Steele story!"

Ever since I read TIGER EYE, I've eagerly awaited each and every Dirk and Steele book and each and every one has not only lived up to my expectations but far exceeded them in what I believe a good read is. Of course, this one is no exception. Be forewarned, if you are expecting a hard edged thrill a minute roller coaster ride of action and adventure, then this is definitely the book for you.

Dean and Miri were best friends when they were young but when they were fifteen, they saw each other murdered. They both assumed each had died but now twenty years later they finally meet again. Neither can believe their own eyes when they recognize each other. It's not possible they believe but there they are. Now they are caught up in a game complete with ancient artifacts, two pieces of jade, shape-shifting dragons and a whole slew of villains. Now all they have to do is find the clues and then piece them together like a puzzle. Only this is one puzzle they must solve in a matter of life or death. Who and how many will pay the ultimate price before the puzzle is finally solved?

Wow, what a story! I was on pins and needles page after page. This book is one of the most riveting I've ever had the opportunity to read. I believe Marjorie M. Liu gets better and better with every Dirk and Steele story. Bring on another one, Marjorie. I'm ready!

Imagine a world where magic rubs elbows with science, where men and women with supernatural powers secretly risk their lives to help others. It is a world where one right turn can deliver a mystery that will change your life forever, a world of shape-shifters, immortal magicians, criminal underworlds run by powerful psychics -- intrigue, mystery, and romance.

The saga continues in THE RED HEART OF JADE as Dean Campbell -- clairvoyant, dangerous, and irreverent -- finds himself hot on the trail of a murderer who is part of an ancient hunt for power, a hunt that has only one outcome: death or destruction. And at the heart of that hunt -- both prize and mystery -- is a women who died in Dean's arms twenty years earlier: Mirabelle Lee, childhood sweetheart and the love of his life. Together, alive and reunited, Dean and Miri are forced to rely on each other -- and the strength of their enduring love -- as they race to unravel the mystery that threatens not only their lives, but the entire world.
