How could this have happened? Amidst the trauma of this new discovery, Yu Ching-Yang does his best to help the police by looking back through his mother and father’s early history. But some of what he finds does not want to be uncovered – secrets of the Sino-Japanese War and the Chinese Civil War, dark connections to Wang Jing-Wei and the Japanese puppet government in Shanghai, eerie coincidences that somehow brought the young man and young woman together. But, as Yu Ching-Yang has found out, bodies never stay buried…
