The Spy Who Came in From the East Coast

A short story I wrote for the Close to the Bones anthology (available now! Click here to shop).

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.

Pick up a copy of Close to the Bones to read this story, which takes place between the events of Take the Bai Road (Book 2 of the Bai Hsu series) and Bai Treason (Book 3 of the Bai Hsu series)!
