Publisher's summary

Admiral Jake Grafton takes his wife, Callie, along when the U.S. government sends him to Hong Kong to find out how deeply the American consul-general is embedded in political money raising scandal. And why not? Jake and Callie met and fell in love in Hong Kong during the Vietnam War, and the consul-general is a friend from those days.

The Graftons quickly discover, however, that Hong Kong is a powder keg ready to explode. A political muder and the closure of a foreign bank by the communist government are the sparks that light the fuse.

When Callie is kidnapped by a rebel faction, Jake finds himself drawn into the vortex of a high-tech civil war. To save his wife, he must figure out whom he can trust - both among the Western factionsvying for control of the volatile situation, and amoung the Chinese patriots fighting for their nation's future - and make sure the right side wins.

Another Jake Grafton story

What did you like best about Hong Kong? What did you like least?

Love the characters, I've read the entire collection, the audio version makes it even better.

What other book might you compare Hong Kong to and why?

Cuba, because of the characters, and the story. I couldn't stop listening to it.

Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Prichard’s performances?

Not sure, I tried to listen to a Tom Clancy's read by him, and I had to stop. Too bad, it was one of my favorite book :(

Was Hong Kong worth the listening time?

The story is worth it, but the performance by the narrator is so bad, it is not worth listening to it. I switched to kindle version to finish the book.
It may be worth to suggest Brilliance audio or Audible to re-record a new version by Benjamin L. Darcie. It will be totally worth it!

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
