Stephen Leather's BESTSELLING breakthrough thriller. The Chinaman understood death. Jungle-skilled, silent and lethal, he had killed for the Viet Cong and then for the Americans. He had watched helpless when his two eldest daughters had been raped and killed by Thai pirates. Now all that was behind him. Quiet, hard-working and unassuming, he was building up his South London take-away business. Until the day his wife and youngest daughter were destroyed by an IRA bomb in a Knightsbridge department store. Then, simply but persistently, he began to ask the authorities who were the men responsible, what was being done. And was turned away, fobbed off, treated as a nuisance. Which was when the Chinaman, denied justice, decided on revenge. And went back to war.

About the Author:

Stephen Leather is a former journalist for the Times. He is the author of the Dan Shepherd Mystery series and several other thrillers.

From AudioFile:

A horrific series of IRA bombings in London sets up this revenge story in which a highly trained Vietnamese assassin seeks justice for the loss of his wife and daughter. Narrator Russell Boulter deftly navigates numerous accents as the patient reluctant hero, Nguyen Ngoc Minh, plies his skills in a series of bloody attacks. He hopes to force politicians to crack down on the more militant elements of the cause. BoulterÕs deliberate pacing and flawless timing heighten the emotional confrontations, graphic sex, tense showdowns, and heartbreaking conclusion. Fans of thrillers on both sides of the Pond will find entertainment and enlightenment in this wise assassin. R.O. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
