The one thing Josephine “Jo” Bradley (27) knows for certain is that she’s a good cop. She’s ambitious and tough (or thinks she is) and has just been assigned her first case as lead Detective following her recent promotion to Vancouver’s Homicide Division. But Jo doesn’t truly feel Chinese. Born in China, abandoned by a family she never knew, Jo was adopted as a toddler from an orphanage in Fujian and relocated to Vancouver.
When Charles Xie goes missing and his body is found ritualistically buried, Jo is assigned the case. Though the Xies appear to be a simple, working class Chinese family, Jo will be forced to tear the family apart and reveal a long held secret in order to solve the murder of their troubled middle son. The cat-and-mouse game she plays to fracture the Xie family will also leave Jo broken and searching for her own identity and the meaning of family.
