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.
