This is a clever thriller written by someone with excellent experience of Hongkong and a thorough knowledge of Chinese history. I really enjoyed the story and the depth of the background history enriches it. Some arguments between characters in the story enable a good airing of the issues of past and present. I think that the clarity of the author on China would make the tale accessible even to those without much knowledge of Chinese history.
