9780008101664: Jian

From the author of THE NINJA comes the first book in Eric Van Lustbader's CHINA MAROC series. Jian is the Champion, the Man who Excels. His arts are martial and philosophic, terrifyingly physical, cruelly cerebral. Who is he? What are his aims? Is he Jake Maroc: a man haunted by his past, threatened by his present, careless for his future - except to exact the vengeance which is his? Is he Nichiren, Jake's deadly adversary, as skilled in the arts of survival as Maroc himself? Four pieces of jade hold the answer: like pieces in wei qi, the Chinese game of strategy, they are to be used as part of a Grand Game. Honk Kong is part of the prize - but only part. As violence breeds violence, deception breeds chaos and the great nations of the world manoeuvre for position, one man and his secret strategy could destroy them all...

From the Inside Flap:

"Brilliant...Perhaps no other piece of fiction since SHOGUN illuminates the mind, machinations, and mores of Eastern peoles with the style and intensity of JIAN."
THE MIAMI HERALD
Jake Maroc is the top agent for the Quarry, the secretive government agency. Nichiren, Jake's sworn enemy, is a cold killer with a deadly secret. Shi Zilin is a wily Communist minister, a survivor of eras in turmoil. Which one of them will emerge the true Jian--the consummate warrior, the man who excels, the supreme master of the arts of love and combat, strength and wisdom?
Four ancient pieces of jade are the key to unlocking the grand scheme of the Jian. The price is Hong Kong--glittering jewel that sets the KGB, the Communist Chinese, and the Americans in a deadly battle.

About the Author:

In addition to writing numerous bestselling novels, Lustbader spent fifteen years in the music industry. He travels worldwide researching his novels, and lives in New York with his wife Victoria.
