Product Description

From the Back Cover

Beneath passion and purifying fire is . . . The Red Heart of Jade

Dean Campbell can see and sense things that others cannot—an extraordinary ability that drew the ex-cop to the Dirk & Steele Detective Agency, a global association of more-than-human men and women. Dean and his peers—shapeshifters, psychics, and other paranormals—are dedicated to protecting life. But there are those who live for destruction.

Now Dean's investigation into a series of unthinkable killings is calling him to Taipei, where a pattern is emerging that is more deadly than anything he could have foreseen. At the center is a power that could change the world . . . and the woman who can truly complete him: Mirabelle Lee, the girl Dean loved in his youth, the childhood sweetheart he once believed dead. Now that his heart has been reawakened, he will not lose her again—even as the forces of an immortal evil gather to destroy them and everything they love.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
"The Red Heart of Jade" is the 3rd instalment in MML's paranormal romance series; "Dirk & Steele", a detective agency which employs very unusual people to tackle even more unusual crimes. Dean Campbell, a clairvoyant who has cropped up in both "Tiger Eye" and "Shadow Touch" finally takes a leading role in "The Red Heart of Jade" and finds himself drawn into a world of magic whilst investigating gruesome murders occurring in Taiwan.

We learn the Dean grew up with a close friend, Mirabelle (Miri) Lee, a young woman he fell in love with, only to watch her die from a gunshot wound at the age of 16. Badly hurt himself in the attack, for many years after the incident Dean found himself using his gift to try and track Mirabelle; only to find no trace of her. Now chasing a psychopathic murderer, a being who just happens to be a shape shifting dragon, he finds a photo of the killer's next target; Dr Mirabelle Lee.

Discovering Mirabelle is alive proves shattering for Dean, a woman he believed died in his arms 20 years ago, yet for the first time he momentarily finds a trace of her and is just in time to stop her being snatched by Robert, an immortal being hired to kidnap her. Only that morning Mirabelle extracted a mysterious piece of red jade from the mummified remains of a woman, yet it appears this gem houses significant power, a power someone is willing to kill for.

On the run from the dragon shape shifter and Robert, Miri too tries to comprehend that Dean is alive.

I recently had the opportunity to review Marjorie's new book that is being released on the 4 July 2006 here in the UK and wow...

Dean Campbell currently works for the Dirk & Steele Detective Agency. With his abilities he is the perfect man to investigate several murders in Taipei.

While searching for a murderer Dean finds the photo of his Childhood sweetheart.

A Childhood sweetheart who is dead or is she really?

What happened so many years ago?

To find out you need to read the book!

When reading The Red Heart of Jade you have hit the jackpot, the third book in the series has romance, suspense and so much more and true to form Marjorie is magnificent, the plots is ingenious, fresh, spellbinding and the characters are well developed.

I could not put the book down as it has everything you want.

I rate The Red Heart of Jade as five stars.

I highly recommend this book - it is money well spent.

As children Dean and Miri were best friends, they told each other everything and had no secrets and even their own form of language. When they were 16 they decided to take that friendship to the next level, but was interupted when a man tried to steal their and shot Miri. Dean left thinking that Miri was dead, unable to 'find' her using his special abilty.
Now, years later, Dean is a member of Dirk and Steele and is known for his humour and his fondness for women. What they don't know is that he has never been able to forget his first love.
Imagine his suprise when, after waking up by someone clawing a hole in his chest, he sees a picture of a beautiful woman with an uncanny resemblence to the one woman he's never been able to forget.
Dean's even more suprised when he realises that the woman IS Miri. She's been alive all these years, believing that he had died.
Now they have bigger problems as bad guys are chasing them, after the Jade that Miri has while Miri tries to find her friend and get her head around the fact that the boy she has always loved is very much alive and is now one sexy man.

This is my favourite out of the series. The big reveal as to what's going on is amazing and well thought out and Dean and Miri's love story will make even the hardest of heart's melt. Especially, when you find out Dean's secret and his 'magic fingers'.
An amazing read and id reccomend it to anyone interested in Marjorie M Liu's work.
