In 1912, John Wade and his brother, William—children of the American consul—were kidnapped off the street in Chungking, China, and raised in the house of Eunuch Chang, the city’s master criminal. Twenty-five years later, John is the eunuch’s most valuable ward, a trained assassin and swindler, and William has become a talented forger. On the brink of World War II, China is in chaos. When William betrays Eunuch Chang and escapes to central China, a place of ferocious warlords and bandits, John begins a desperate search to save his brother, while Eunuch Chang hunts them both.

Review:

“Thayer limns a vivid picture of a tumultuous time in Chinese history.” —Booklist

“James Thayer delivers a vivid and compelling thriller...Thayer has created a gripping portrayal of loyalty and treachery in a rarely seen world of China at war.” —Associated Press

“Complex and detail-rich adventure story.” —The Seattle Times

“With every turn of the page, the reader feels transported to another time and country.” —Hartford Books Examiner

“The mastery of characters and the ability to bring to life locations that most have never seen, so vividly that they almost seem to be the view out your own window, is incredible. Readers and fans will love this new dose of Thayer’s talent.” —Suspense Magazine
