In a tale played out during the last days of pre-World War II China and the rise of Communism, Jim Dahlgren, representative of the Amalgamated Aeronautical Company, has had enough of the fatalistic brand of diplomacy from other nations that claim to want a united China, one that can resist invasion from without and treason within? but which refuses to intervene and prevent it's demise... And the damage is just too costly when lives are at stake, especially when a villain known as """"""""The Butcher"""""""" is allowed to rise up with fire and sword carving the way on his warpath for complete control of the nation. When Dahlgren disappears? purportedly to find a mysterious aviator, the man called """"""""Wind-Gone-Mad"""""""" who has always fought against the province warlords? he ignites a series of actions which just may spell disaster.

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.From AudioFile:
The outstanding Hubbard Golden Age sci-fi series continues with this compilation of tales set in pre-WWII China. The central story focuses on one man's search for a mysterious aviator known only as "Wind-Gone-Mad," who may be able to save the country from total destruction. The production quality of this entry in the series continues to be top-notch, with realistic sound effects that take listeners to a new time and place. The cast of narrators is stellar, with each performer deserving praise. A subtle musical score creates a stirring atmosphere of foreboding that draws listeners into each story from the start. In particular, R.F. Daley, the omniscient storyteller, delivers a pitch-perfect reading that sets the tone of each story. L.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
