Really liked it, worth the read.

I put off downloading this one based on the description. Once I got into it I thought it was very imaginative. This is the kind of story that is truly fiction, but based on a possible reality. I thouroughly enjoyed and recommend it. If you like Coonts, you'll like this one.

Americans, including our hero Jake Grafton, in Hong Kong at the time of China's revolution. This book is full of twisty turns that keep one's interest. I've never been to Hong Kong and never wanted to go, but the book is a good read/listen because the interaction of really, really bad dudes who eventually get their due. Show me the next Grafton novel.
