The Chinaman understood death.

Jungle-skilled, silent, and lethal, he had killed for the Viet Cong and then for the Americans. He had watched helpless as his two eldest daughters were raped and killed by Thai pirates. Now, all that was behind him. Quiet, hard-working, and unassuming, he was building up his South London take-away business - until the day his wife and youngest daughter were murdered by an IRA bomb. Then he began to ask the authorities who were the men responsible, what was being done - and was turned away, fobbed off, treated as a nuisance. That was when the Chinaman, denied justice, decided on revenge...and went back to war.

    " Interesting mix of Viet and IRA guerilla/terrorist methods and the influence of Libya on the IRA. Learned some things about bomb making. Good story. "

    " IRA terrorists in the 1990's bomb London and kill the wife and daughter of a Vietnamese immigrant. He sets out for revenge. In contrast to the author's many fans, I thought the plot was predictable and boring. Just not my cup of tea. "

    " one of my Favourite Stephen Leather books! The first one I've read of Stephen Leather but worth the while "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian T | 3/10/2011

    " Lent to me again by my neighbour. A great book if now after 230 years a bit politically dated. I don't think the IRA or the government would like this now although at the time of release would have been really current. "

    " Crazy Vietnamese veteran tries to get revenge on the IRA. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caz | 12/13/2010

    " Great story but weird that it is just one long chapter - made putting it down very difficult! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex | 12/5/2010

    " Quite entertaining but predictable. With an intriguing beginning but with a lame end. Easy to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jess | 3/26/2009

    " Took me two weeks to get through the first hundred pages but after that I couldn't put it down. I love the swapping between characters at the end. Also, nice mix of action and storyline - if there was a bit more romance I would be backing it 100%. Nice easy read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skip | 3/14/2009

    " Dan "Spider" Shepherd is back to try to stop terrorists from a major London disaster. He gets a new boss. Fast paced. "
