Greater Kinmen, the final battlefront in the Chinese Civil War between the Nationalist Kuomintang and the Communist People's Liberation Army in 1949. Now belonging to Taiwan, the island sits just kilometers offshore of China, the hulking giant threatening to take the “renegade state” back into the fold of the motherland by any means necessary, including all-out invasion. And yet, the state of affairs between the two nations seems peaceful, for the time being. But when the body of a businessman mysteriously washes up alongside a Taiwanese naval vessel docked at Kinmen, it sets in motion a series of shocking revelations which prove that when it comes to Sino-Taiwanese relations, all is definitely not what it seems. Jason Su, a young Taiwanese businessman raised overseas in the United States, finds himself swept up in a plot involving the Chinese Ministry of State Security, Taiwan's National Security Bureau, and the highest levels of power within the Chinese and Taiwanese governments. Together with his partner, Private Investigator Li-Yang Wang, Jason is forced into a role he never imagined he would have to play—that of Taiwan's last hope in what could be the final chapter written in the Taiwan-China conflict.

About the Author:

J.W. Henley is a freelance writer and musician originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, now based out of Taipei, Taiwan. After obtaining Bachelor's of Journalism from the University of King's College in the spring of 2005, he skipped his graduation ceremony and traveled to Taiwan on a whim with a few hundred dollars in his pocket and no plan whatsoever. That flight of fancy has now extended into the better part of a decade spent in Taiwan's capital city, during which he has kept busy writing and performing as a vocalist in various punk and metal bands. An avid traveler, his personal journeys and touring schedule have taken him around Asia and all over the world, spanning as far as the Caribbean, North Africa, the South Pacific and Northern Europe. Literary heroes include the greats of true grit, such as Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, William S. Burroughs, Charles Bukowski, and Lester Bangs. He shares a home with his wife, Jill, and their three cats. He and Jill are constantly cooking up some sort of travel scheme to take them far, far away from the mundane. But until the next trip comes along, there is always another story to get lost in.
