Eventually Ellie accompanied Trey on his new job in Beijing. There, the relationship falls apart and Ellie, the broken shell of the girl she was must make a life for herself in a land very foreign to her. I'm still not sure exactly what she did to wind up in such a spot with every kind of faction out to get something from her. She's not easy to like and it seems that not many people like her very much.
This book got some pretty good reviews, including from the New York Times. I need to be able to like a character and there weren't any likable characters for me in this one.
