    Peking in 1937 is a heady mix of privilege and scandal, opulence and opium dens, rumors and superstition. The Japanese are encircling the city, and the discovery of Pamela Werner's body sends a shiver through already nervous Peking. Is it the work of a madman? One of the ruthless Japanese soldiers now surrounding the city? With the suspect list growing and clues sparse, two detectives - one British and one Chinese - race against the clock to solve the crime before the Japanese invade and Peking as they know it is gone forever.

    Jeremy says: "When history can be stranger than fiction"
    "Fascinating, a total winner"

    Story
    What did you love best about Midnight in Peking?

    A fascinating blend of history, murder and the dogged determination of one man to find his daughter's killers. Told against the backdrop of the fall of Peking to the Japanese and replete with British diplomats, white Russians, drug dealers and brothels.

  • All Cry Chaos: The Henri Poincaré Series, Book 1

    All Cry Chaos is a masterful and gripping tale that literally reaches for the heavens. The action begins when mathematician James Fenster is assassinated on the eve of a long-scheduled speech at a World Trade Organization meeting. The hit is as elegant as it is bizarre. Fenster’s Amsterdam hotel room is incinerated, yet the rest of the building remains intact. The murder trail leads veteran Interpol agent Henri Poincaré on a high-stakes, world-crossing quest for answers.

    Sandy says: "Not bad."
    "not a book for the faint of heart."

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I personally abandoned the book early in the story. Just too violent for my taste. I was looking for a John Le Carre type of story and clearly should have read critiques that might have alerted me as to its content.


    Any additional comments?

    Just too much violence for me.
