    When Leroy "Chinese" Gordon breaks into a professor's lab at the University of Los Angeles, he's after some pharmaceutical cocaine, worth plenty of money. Instead, he finds the papers the professor has compiled for the CIA, which include a blueprint for throwing a large city into chaos. But how is the CIA to be persuaded to pay a suitable ransom, unless of course someone actually uses the plan to throw a large city into chaos - Los Angeles, for instance?

    "Didn't get it."

    Would you try another book from Thomas Perry and/or Michael Kramer?

    This experience leads me to avoid this author in the future. Narrator was ok; it was the story that I didn't get.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Thomas Perry again?

    Nope.


    What aspect of Michael Kramer???s performance would you have changed?

    Nothing in particular.


    Any additional comments?

    I have skipped very few books among hundreds from Audible. This was one of them. If the book doesn't grab me in the first hour, I lose interest.

    Trying to squeeze an entire history of Chinese civilization into a brief, one volume account is a formidable task, but one that has succeeded brilliantly here. Hilda Hookham has provided us with a concise story that, while not getting too entangled with personalities and cultural issues, manages to navigate the swirling passage of events that comprise over 3,000 years of Chinese political history.

    Kimberly says: "Audible Can Do Better Than This"
    "Decent history w/limitations"
    Overall

    Reasonably decent overview of Chinese history. Be aware, she is a total, blind apologist for the Chinese Communist system. Hookham acknowledges NONE of Mao & his party's atrocities -- Mao is one of history's worst mass murderers, but you wouldn't guess it by this book. Mao's true nature, & recent Chinese history's truth is acknowledged in a epilogue (the author of this is not mentioned). Shortly after you hit the 1911 revolution, you can pretty much ignore the rest of Hilda's book as pure Chinese communist propaganda.
