If you haven’t figured it out yet, I was really hooked on Eric Van Lustbader. I kept them all and reread them occasionally. Is he a traitor or are our U. This was sitting on my parents’ bookshelf so I decided to give it a go. I didn’t want to give up. Sban second we’re in Hong Kong with the Chinese mafia and somehow the Japanese yakuza is involved and there’s some kind of gang war.
Then we’re in Russia lusbader a woman who turns out to be a spy. Then in China where something spi DNF. Then in China where something shaj and mystical seems to be going on. Everything was all over the place and takes place all over the world apparently. I just couldn’t follow any of it. Oct 06, For the love of books rated lystbader really lustbadrr it Shelves: Bel seguito, forse anche migliore del primo nonostante ci sia meno azione. Nov 29, Judi rated it liked it. I was not able to finish this book as I became disgusted with all the gratuitous sex and violence.
This was a continuation of another book by this author. This book is decently written, but the story line was not as interesting as that of the previous book. It was disappointing after the first book. It was a very superficial and inaccurate portrayal of the Communist takeover of China with a very simplistic view of Mao Zhi Dong. I only read about pages of the book before lstbader it aside.
Jan 16, Tessa Small rated it it was amazing. I Love these books on the Eastern Cultures. This like Jian is a mix of international espionage, intrigue, fast past chases and politics all thrown together in a fascinating read than takes you around the world and back in time all in a logical and structured order to keep you guessing.
It has some extremely poignant moments and some finger biting cant put the book down moments. Great read, and I’m looking forward lustbadfr reading more from this author. Lustbadre 05, Dimitko rated it it was amazing. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The continuation of “Jian” this book made me really sad.
The general fabula direction was to be expected if you read the first part, but the way the author serves is, and the details around it, surely make it worth reading!
Even though it doesnt have a “happy ending”, it again shows some lessons in hardcore strategy and tactics which one can only respect. I found the book very educating, amongst all the small pleasures of reading it. Dec 05, Rhod rated it really liked it.
Shxn story is fast paced, dealing with Lusbtader intrigue, double agents, treachery, double cross. The author includes a rich dose of Chinese culture and the rise of Communism in China including the roles of the United States and Russia.
The book is steamy and characters get involved in some brutal fights. I look forward to sampling some other books by this author.
Sep 19, David rated it it was ok Shelves: The book lhstbader about spys, mafia and power.

May 12, Tyson rated it liked it Shelves: The second book in the series, this one is just as strong as the first book in the series. Might even be a little stronger as they background is already set.
