Points the detectives
5 July 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A body burned beyond recognition other than it was a female is found right outside the door of the apartment of the Chinese consul. Even though it's looking like one of those Buddhist suicides reminiscent of Vietnam in the Sixties Jerry Orbach and Jesse Martin have to investigate.

The consul Grant Chang immediately points the detectives in the direction of the Falun Gong people who the Chinese government is cracking down on. They say religion, the government says cult an argument almost old as written history.

An arrest is made and it's the wrong man. Fortunately the right culprit is discovered and the motive is both bizarre and banal at the same time.

What some don't consider a motive for murder.
