One day after coming home from a dinner at a local restaurant, Hongmei receives an e-mail from a stranger in which they describe every little detail of this outing: her outfit, behavior, chosen table, atmosphere… Instead of calling the police, Hongmei, bored of her marriage, writes back. She quickly falls into a trap waiting for new messages from “the secret talker” and tells them more about herself than she has ever told anybody.

The Secret Talker is a short thriller that analyzes the history of an unfulfilling marriage, focusing on psychological aspects of the couple who, despite having lived together for a while, can’t communicate What’s interesting, this book is a unique example of a reversed immigrant story, written for readers living in China for whom California, where the action takes place, is a distant, foreign country.

"Qiao Hongmei stood before the mirror, posing the way he'd described her, with her weight on one leg. She tried desperately to remember who'd been in the restaurant the night before. but not a single face remained in her mind. Yet he existed. A stranger's existence, gradually taking on form and substance, a hint of bodily warmth, in their sixteenth-floor apartment with her unwitting husband in the next room."
