Braced for death, she finds herself instead saving a man’s life—a young Chinese cockle picker, one of the only survivors of a tragic mass drowning. For Wen—now missing, presumed dead—Angie provides an unexpected sanctuary.

They share neither language nor experience, but she agrees to let him stay with her and ‘disappear’. Within a short time their unlikely pairing blossoms into something darkly passionate.But Wen’s past soon catches up with him. He is still in debt to the snakeheads who brought him out of China. And when his sister, Lili, travels to Britain in search of his memory, she unwittingly seals his fate.Crimson China is a novel that traps the reader at the outset, shining a light on a tragic, hidden world that runs in parallel to our own.

It is a story of identity and culture, of the irrepressibility of the human spirit, and the powerful undertow of love.
