Synopsis: The year is 1900 and China is plunged into barbaric chaos. The Boxers, a cult of young peasants who blame the foreign barbarians living in their country – particularly the missionaries – for the nation’s ills, are rampaging through the country, killing foreigners. China’s Dowager Empress – ‘The Dragon Lady’ – secretly encourages them. The new century has begun and former captain and army scout Simon Fonthill, his wife Alice and ‘352’ Jenkins, Fonthill’s former batman and trusted comrade, are caught up in bloody chaos in the Chinese countryside. Into this maelstrom land Simon, Alice and Jenkins, as they are enroute to visit Alice’s uncle, a country missionary. Threatened by the Boxers, the three escort the missionary and his family to the safety of Peking. En route, the party is attacked by the red-bannered Boxers and the missionary is killed. The survivors reach Peking only to find that the capital is no sanctuary. The Legations of the foreign ministers within the city is surrounded and the Siege of Peking begins. Fonthill, Jenkins and Chang, the missionary’s adopted son, volunteer to slip through the enemy lines to bring help. It proves to be Fonthill’s most dangerous mission...

About the Author: According to author JOHN WOLCOX, an inability to do sums and a nascent talent to string words together steered him towards journalism – that and the desire to wear a trench coat, belted with a knot, just like Bogart. After a number of years working as a journalist, he was lured into industry. In the mid-nineties he sold his company in order to devote himself to his first love, writing. His Simon Fonthill novels have been published to high acclaim and he has also published two works of non-fiction.
