About this Item: London 2001, Headline hard bound w/dj, first UK edition , FINE/FINE CONDITION, 6x9, 343 pages. Second in this new series. AUTOGRAPHED EDITION - signed by the author on a custom book plate on front free end paper. .1849, SOUTH CHINA SEA. The sight that confronts the crew of HMS Tisipbone can only be the work of Zhai Jing-mu, China's most feared and ruthless pirate. The burning clipper and her slaughtered crew bear all the hallmarks of one of the pirate's savage attacks. Kit Killigrew, the Tisiphone's second lieutenant, captures Zhai Jing-mu after a bloody chase and rescues Peri Dadabhoy, a beautiful young Indian woman.After handing Zhai Jing-mu over to the police, Killigrew is free to enjoy the many pleasures Hong Kong has to offer. Not least of these is Peri, now safely returned to her father. But beneath the opulent surface the fledgling colony seethes with tensions: the Triads are rapidly gaining influence and the hostilities that started the Opium War are all too easily revived. Then Zhai Jing-mu escapes.As Killigrew races to recapture Zhai Jing-mu before the pirate can wreak vengeance on those responsible for his imprisonment, he finds treachery and murder waiting around every corner. And somewhere in this tangled web of intrigue lurks the fabulously wealthy Blase Bannatyne, tai-pan of the leading company importing opium into China.This is the second in a new series featuring the unconventional naval hero Kit Killigrew. Set in the early days of the British colony on Hong Kong, where fortunes could be made or lost overnight, Killigrew and the Golden Dragon is as alive with the sights, sounds and smells of the Far East as it is packed with action and adventure.

About this Item: London 2002, Headline, First UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 6x9, 374 pages. Third in this series. . AUTOGRAPHED EDITION - signed by the author on a custom book plate on front free end paper. .SOUTH SEAS, 1850. 'Wyatt's out.' These two words alone are enough to strike fear and trepidation into every warder and prisoner on Norfolk Island. No-one, not even the most hardened of criminals, has ever survived the water pit - seven days standing in the brackish water, too scared to sleep lest you drown. Officially it's a punishment that doesn't exist but Price, the new commandant, will go to any lengths to stamp his authority on the prisoners.It is towards this savage penal colony that Kit Killigrew and the crew of the Tisiphone are bound, ostensibly to drop off Price's new governess, and a reporter bent on interviewing Devin Cusack - an Irish political prisoner. But, when an unknown party tries to rescue Cusack, seven of the island's most ruthless prisoners escape, including Wyatt.What ensues is a deadly game of cat and mouse among the New Hebrides, where Killigrew unearths a series of illegal trades in a deadly business. It is a task which needs Killigrew's utmost concentration if he is to succeed, but the last thing Killigrew feels is heroic: foolhardy, reckless, indifferent to whether he lives or dies, maybe, but definitely not heroic. He is tormented by thoughts of a personal tragedy that he failed to avert. Ultimately, it is Killigrew's state of mind which threatens to achieve what a tribe of cannibals, a band of desperate criminals on the run and a vicious trader - hell bent on profit at any cost cannot, as he places himself in the line of danger once too often.
