The splendour, the violence and the passion of Post-Imperial Chine brought to life in
A land freed of centuries of Imperial rule, now in the hands of petty tyrants and their bands of military adventurers.
Into this wild land come not only the traders, British and French, American and Japanese, but the gun runners, the missionaries and above all, representatives from another revolution, the newly successful Bolsheviks.
When the train on which the young missionary is travelling is hijacked by the bandits, Philip Embree’s life changes immediately. His future becomes inextricably involved with General Tang, a great Warlord. He becomes a member of his elite bodyguard and also the lover of Tang’s Russian mistress.
Superb history, powerful drama, spectacular scenes, an outstanding story.
Paperback, 736 pages. In very good preloved condition with the exception of light fading and creasing to the spine and cover.
