SHANGHAI 1928Wes Ford, a young newspaperman, has come to the Shanghai in search of his sister and her husband who have been kidnapped. The summer of 1928 is a time of turbulence and ferment in China, as Chiang Kai-shek moves with his troops on the capital of China. It is a time when the Azure Dragon dominates the land. China is a country in which the nationalists, communists, warlords, missionaries, and reformers vie with one another for the hearts of its people. In the midst of this turmoil, Wes proceeds to mount a rescue operation. He is aided in this endeavor by a number of people many of whom have their own secret and sometimes sinister reasons for helping. Those offering to aid him range from members of Shanghai's elite society to members of Shanghai's vicious underworld. Among these would-be helpers are Ian Royal, an American movie producer and wealthy scion of an oil company, and his mistress Valerie Atwood, Detective Sergeant Shen Ming-dao, a member of the Shanghai Metropolitan police, and his young and spirited sister Yu-yan, who brings romance into the life of Wes. While attempting the rescue Wes also crosses the path of Shanghai's gangster, Tu Yueh-sen, head of the infamous Green Gang. An expertly written historical adventure story.
