The Beijing Ripper makes a personal vendetta against Detective Li Yan in the sixth and final episode in the China series

GRUESOME MURDERS

His victims are young, beautiful and coldly mutilated. He calls himself the Beijing Ripper. Li Yan, head of Beijing's serious crime squad, must stop him.

FEARSOME LETTERS

Just as pathologist Margaret Campbell finds an insight into the killer's sick signature, Li receives a letter from the killer, betraying his cruel intentions.

CHINESE WHISPERS

There's no way Li can misinterpret the Ripper's motives: he wants to tear Li and Campbell's lives apart, and write the darkest chapter in Beijing's history.
