A Chinese National working for an American-owned construction company is grabbed off the streets of Shanghai in broad daylight. His one-man security detail goes missing as well. Rutherford Risk, the company's international security contractor, is a firm specializing in extraction: the negotiation for, and the recovery of hostages. Private investigation is illegal in today's China. Operating within her borders will be difficult at best: complex political situations and corrupt individuals combined with the intricacies of Chinese culture make such work anything but straightforward.The security company recruits two unique outsiders to do their bidding. Grace Chu is a forensic accountant hired to follow the money; John Knox is a civilian with unparalleled training in both combat and culture brought in to support Chu. Grace�s top-notch American education, as well as her Chinese military service, make her an unassuming, but effective, operative, while Knox�s take-no-prisoners attitude brings them perilously close to harm. Following the money leads to more complex � and dangerous � consequences than either anticipated. Who is actually behind the kidnapping? And more importantly, can Knox and Grace locate the two hostages ahead of the deadline?Rich with the atmosphere of Shanghai in all its contradictory beauty and crackling with tension-filled suspense, Extraction introduces us to two brilliant and compelling new characters�and heralds in the start of a brilliant new series.
