About this title

Synopsis:

The three short novels in this volume are related not simply by their milieu of Chinese culture but also by how the supernatural world - or our fears of it - can dramatically shape events in our daily lives. In Bones of the Chinamen the hellish world of the Chinese slave trade is recreated; a world of violence, cruelty and sudden death. In Dragon Slayer, an American helicopter crew is suddenly transported from 1968 Vietnam into 1857 China where they find themselves caught up in the midst of yet another war. In Golden Dragon, along the barren coast of Down East Maine, local thugs kill employees of a Chinese restaurant, and believe themselves safe from retribution; until a mysterious and beautiful Chinese woman appears.

About the Author:

Dean Barrett has written several books on Asia, especially on China and Thailand, having first arrived as a Chinese linguist with the American Army Security Agency during the Vietnam War. He specializes in the period of the Late Ch'ing Dynasty and has written on China in plays, a musical, non-fiction and in novels such as the much-acclaimed Hangman's Point.
