Summary from publisher, "The relationship between Peter Caine and Jennifer Sung ("Pai Gow") is heating up, but members of the Sung family object—some violently. And journalist Jennifer is being drawn into a murderous situation between two corrupt businessmen. In the ensuing dual conflict, Peter turns to his father to help save Jennifer...and himself."

Reactions and Reviews

This old-fashioned hurt/comfort story, which takes me right back to the days of my fannish youth, is from a couple of fannish veterans (with their roots in ST fandom in the 70s). It examines some deeper feelings along the way, but the hurt/comfort element is the heart of the story.[1]
