The Secret Empress
Frank Heller is not new in the publishing world. He has published biographical and exhibition catalogs, but The Secret Empress is his first-ever novel. This follows Joe Wilder and his adventures in China. Joe Wilder tries to focus his attention on turning his successful bodybuilding career into a billion-dollar international health and fitness conglomerate. However, he might be facing bankruptcy when massive price increases in his supply line from China. Wilder decides to travel to the country to confront the minister of trade regarding this issue. It surprises him that the deputy minister Wen Shu Xian offers him a deal to help her twelve-year-old son Charley travel to America. What seems to be an easy deal turned out to be challenging when the minister was murdered only hours after their deal. And now, Joe becomes the suspect but also the guardian of the boy, who has a secret. Wilder initially thought that his dangerous past was beyond him— being a CIA field agent— well, except for the nightmare about gunfires, screams, and the lifeless body of a boy he could not save. Now, everything seems to be catching up to the present. He must rely on his former life’s skills to stay alive and keep the boy safe. What was the boy’s secret? Why are the gangs of China after this boy? Can Wilder keep the boy from harm’s way? Can he save his reputation? Will he be able to find behind the murder of the minister? Will he be able to get away from powerful criminal gangs? And will he be able to survive it all?
