1997: Hong Kong, China.  No longer a prize of British colonialism, Hong Kong will enter a new realm of history as China reclaims what she sees as her most wayward child.  No one knows what this change will bring.  Will this become a new era of peace and prosperity for the city, uniting the people with a common goal and vision, all working for the glory of China?

Or will this mean the destruction of Hong Kong's way of life, a withdrawal of all the liberties enjoyed by the island's residents by a mainland government that views all trade as state secrets and the press as an enemy of the People's Republic?
 
Change can bring joy--but more often it brings fear.  Among the varied individuals confronting this historic change:
 
Brandon Poole: One of Hong Kong's richest industrialists, he is a British aristocrat whose family helped colonize the city and whose love for it will keep him there...perhaps long past the time of safety.
 
Lacy Lock: A New York investment banker who comes to Hong Kong to make her mark and winds up with much more than she ever bargained for.
 
Cloud Van Hooten: A Dutch businessman hungry for success, whose dreams have drawn him to this city and whose love for one woman may doom them both.
 
Moia Hsu: A beautiful Chinese intellectual with ties to Beijing, whose love for Van Hooten and her country are tearing her apart.
 
These four people--and all the teeming masses of this wondrous place--will face the destiny of Hong Kong together.  And the question all will seek the answer to is...Will the dragon destroy it's most precious treasure?

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Hong Kong China
1Davy Wong crouched low in the reeds. It was daybreak on the Sham Chun River, the natural boundary separating New Territories, the northernmost district of Hong Kong, from the People's Republic of China. During the night he had spent in the swamp, he had heard four distinct shots fired nearby, and once he had heard voices he estimated to be only a few hundred feet away. The past few hours he had heard nothing. He was shivering. His arm ached from a gash he had given himself while crawling under the razor wire fence near Man Kam To.
