Admiral Jake Grafton takes his wife, Callie, along when the U.S. government sends him to Hong Kong to find out how deeply the American consul-general is embedded in a political money-raising scandal. And why not? Jake and Callie met and fell in love in Hong Kong during the Vietnam War, and the consul-general is a friend from those days.

The Graftons quickly discover, however, that Hong Kong is a powder keg ready to explode. A political murder and the closure of a foreign bank by the communist government are the sparks that light the fuse.

When Callie is kidnapped by a rebel faction, Jake finds himself drawn into the vortex of a high-tech civil war. To save his wife, he must figure out whom he can trust, both among the Western factions vying for control of the volatile situation, and among the Chinese patriots fighting for their nation's future, and make sure the right side wins.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paul | 12/22/2013

    " interesting take on what would happen to Hong Kong after the handover. Even though its a novel, the book focuses more on the political aspects than actual mystery / suspense. would be good to see what would happen next to one of the main characters (Cole). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve | 12/18/2013

    " I could not actually finish this book. There were just too many places that required suspension of reality and I could not get past that. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bernadette | 1/9/2013

    " I learned about a little about Hong Kong, plus enjoyed a pretty good story, but there was too much macho guns, military technology, etc. One robot fight scene went on for several pages! It's a guys' book. "

    " This book gave me the smell of Hong Kong, which I really enjoyed. While I was reading I really had the feeling of being there. That my friends is the mark of a remarkable writer. "
