Set in 1380 China, a young bi-racial daughter of a magistrate finds her once safe world turned upside down when her father is falsely accused of treason. She is forced to flee her home and finds herself kidnapped and sold as an indentured servant. o The Judge Lu Ming Dynasty Case Files, is a series of short stories modeled after crime stories traditionally written by Chinese magistrates themselves. Each story highlights a legal system where the magistrates role is multi-faceted; hes the investigator, prosecutor, defense lawyer, judge, and jury.
