A Novella by

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

Sergeant detective D.D. Warren gets called to a murder scene in Boston's colorful Chinatown neighborhood. An antique dealer specializing in ancient Chinese artifacts - 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 artifacts. 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?
