A Novella by

Lisa Gardner and M.J. Rose - along with their popular characters D.D. Warren and Malachai Samuels - team up for the first time ever in this original short story from the New York Times bestselling anthology Face Off.

Sergeant detective D.D. Warren gets called to a murder scene in Boston's colourful Chinatown neighbourhood. An antiques dealer specializing in ancient Chinese artefacts - ceramics, jade, and stone carvings - is dead from a single gunshot wound. Although he appeared to have no known enemies, Mr. John Wen did have a business card clutched in his cold, dead hand. A card bearing the name Malachai Samuels.

A Jungian therapist specializing in past lives and regression therapy, Samuels has also been named a 'person of interest' in recent criminal cases involving stolen artefacts. And there is an eight-inch, solid jade Buddha statue missing from Wen's office. D.D. Warren will have to pay Malachai Samuels a visit - the question is, is he the killer, or can he simply help her find out who is?
