About Black Jade – A Daiyu Wu Mystery
British elites, American snobs, and a murder. Can a blind Chinese young woman and her friends ferret out the killer?
Dallas 1930. Daiyu Wu never hungered for justice. Blind since birth she’s frustrated at her parents’ overprotectiveness, so when she realizes there’s been a murder she keeps them in the dark. The police are unaware of the misdeed, so she feels compelled to find proof and drag the evil act into the light.
Worrying her parents will figure out what she’s up to, Dai continues to dig for clues as to the victim’s identity. But dread cloaks her when she’s targeted by a spoiled rich girl whose actions might allow the killer to slither away scot-free.
Can Dai safely navigate the pitfalls as she unearths the name of the deceased and hunts those involved, or will she take a misstep and expose herself and her family to deadly retaliation?
