The Spy Who Came in From the East Coast

A Bai Hsu short story, available as part of a thriller anthology called Close to the Bones.

In this story, CIA case officer Bai Hsu, who hasn’t been home to visit his disapproving family in seven years, braves their wrath and comes home for a four-day trip. When he arrives, he’s subjected to wall-to-wall guilt trips until his parents come to him with an unusual request: They need him to help his cousin escape the gang that’s been extorting her and her husband.

“…really enjoyed new author Erika Mitchell The Spy Who Came in from the East Coast for humorous passages like ‘I survived three weeks in a North Korean detention facility, I can handle a little quality time with my parents’…” – Don Kidwell, Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer
