About this title

Synopsis:

Typhoon Season is a fast-paced thriller set in Hong Kong. A body floating in the South China Sea, a missing heroin stash, a doomed love affair, corruption in high places...David Baird's latest novel has all the ingredients to grip your attention.
Sinister forces are at work in this British colony living on borrowed time. Triad gangsters, crooked policemen, sophisticated socialites with secrets to hide, a kung-fu film star with lethal fists, all have their secret agendas. As an inquisitive gwei-lo (foreign devil), an American reporter, discovers when he has to run for his life.
Anything can happen in the Typhoon Season. As one Chinese resident tells the reporter: "This is a harlot city. All it's interested in is those who pay cash. Those who can afford the dues get their way. Those who can't get kicked into the gutter.
"Yesterday you were a valued client, a foreign devil with all the privileges. You could buy survival. But not any more. There's no place for Lancelot here. He's sealed into his suit of armour. What can he do for a harlot?"

From the Author:

All characters in this book are fictitious. But anybody who has worked in Hong Kong will recognise certain characteristics of the main players. Hong Kong is one of the world's most fascinating cities with its full share of heroes and villains, of all nationalities. It was exciting to live there. I hope this book captures something of the former colony's essence.
