Summary

Cisco Sanchez is the self-proclaimed "best detective in New York"-better even than Brian McKenna, whom Cisco considers the luckiest detective.Like McKenna, Cisco solves cases while occasionally driving his NYPD bosses crazy. Then he meets his match in Sue Hsu, an airline stewardess who caught Cisco's eye after providing evidence in a murder investigation.To everyone's amazement, the two are engaged to be married.But while celebrating their future over dinner in Toronto's Chinatown, Sue is murdered by members of the street gang Born to Kill.Cisco vows revenge, and throws himself into the case of his life.Pursuing one of the killers, he begins to uncover the dangerous underworld of gangs in the two Chinatowns of Toronto and New York.A history emerges of kidnapping, extortion, drug smuggling, contract killing, and the transport of human cargo between China and North America....a criminal network more powerful than the Mafia and virtually unknown to all but the silent businessmen and frightened workers in Asian communities.Following a trail that leads from Toronto to New York and finally to Singapore and Hong Kong, Cisco relentlessly closes in on the man ultimately responsible not only for his fiance's death, but the fates of thousands of others.Drawing on inside knowledge from NYPD and FBI sources, The Two Chinatowns offers terrific suspense, unparalleled investigative detail, and a look into the most secretive criminal organization in the world.AUTHORBIO: Dan Mahoney was born and raised in New York City.
