New Orleans Museum of Art and Antiquities Junior Curator Val St. Charles is excited to learn that Jian-Shan owns an Asian White Tiger Swords collection. Val informs her boss Scribner that she wants to go to Paris to see if she can borrow the collection for display. Instead of supporting her even with her previous success with a Swedish collection, Scribner tells her if she wants to go shopping do it with her money and if she fails to obtain the collection enjoy Paris on an unemployment check.

His staff thwarts Val's efforts to see Jian so she sneaks into the trunk of his limo. She manages to sneak onto his secret complex, but assassins working for his Chinese Tong chief father traced him through her. Val risks her life to save Jian and his daughter, but soon they are on the run with government agents and assassins wanting to kill the two women and capture him.

Though the ending seems rushed, readers will enjoy this taut romantic suspense thriller. The story line grips the audience from the moment Val slips into the trunk until the final scene, but the characters make the tale hum. The audience will admire Val's bravery, Jian's willingness to risk his life for those he loves, and hiss at his father so nasty as to justify the estrangement with his son. The audience will appreciate THE DEEPEST EDGE.
