Publisher's Summary

Summoned late at night to the bureau, Quiller attends a secret conference with the foreign secretary and a surprise defector: the Chinese ambassador to Britain. Minutes later, shots ring out and the ambassador's body is flung out onto the sidewalk of a deserted London street, riddled with bullets.

Searching for clues, Quiller flies to Calcutta to meet Sojourner, a key ally in the plan to bring democracy to China. But Sojourner is killed - thus, two men, both dedicated to bringing freedom to their country, are dead. No wonder Quiller is skeptical about his next mission: to smuggle a Chinese dissident into Tibet.

    "Stupidity unbound"

    Well written, and beautifully narrated, the plot seemed to be an exercise in stupidity. One has to worry about the intelligence of an intelligence agent giving the full details of a mission to the idiot he is supposed to be protecting, especially when the so-called "messiah" of the masses appears to have the survival instincts of a mayfly. Perhaps due to my age and gender, I am of the mind that it is very hard to continue to be interested in both subject and agent when both are determined to screw up at every available opportunity.
