Sinopse

From Manhattan to the Florida Keys back-country: the Chinese hunt for Sally Luck. Finally, the Coast Guard cutter Thetis is underway. Jillian orders Captain Becker to anchor the yacht in the Johnson Key Channel. Higgins will be coming up the Cudjoe Channel. The waterways will seem almost to join, but midway, the sea floor rises enough to trap his boat upon the rocks.Cai Ling Luk was raised a princess by Chinese aristocrats whose fathers fled when Mao Zedong defeated the nationalists in 1949. Her aloof parents allow her to choose her college. She moves to America and changes her name to Sally Luck.Jillian de Guerre lost her father when she was five. He was a professor at Syracuse University bringing his 35 undergrads back from Britain aboard Pan Am Flight 103 when the Arabs blew it up over Lockerbie.Two women, each nursing only a grudge, are thrown together by events on the other side of the globe. Two trains and a private jet later and they are hiding out in the back country of the Florida Keys.The population imbalance of Mao’s one-child policy has caused 130 million men to live celibate lives as bare branches. China waits only for the spark.Their scientists have answered the riddle of cloning. This is their Manhattan Project and their agents search for female cells to harvest, even in Taiwan and in America. They have no wish for one of our Marilyn Monroe’s. They will find one of their own. Their leaders borrow the idea of “comfort women” from the hated Japanese. Time is of the essence. It will take fifteen years to grow them. So now, the Chinese hunt for Sally Luck
