Red Oblivion

When sisters Jill & Celeste Lau return to Hong Kong, they find their ailing father a shadow of his old self. According to his housekeeper, a couple of mysterious photos, anonymously mailed, led to his collapse. These pictures are only the first link in a chain of events that begin to reveal the truth about their father’s past. Someone from the old days has returned to haunt him. Can Jill piece together the story of her family’s past without sacrificing her father’s love and reputation? (Dundurn)
