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.
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.
Just too much violence for me.
