Publisher Description

Set in China, and ripped from today's headlines, comes a pulse-pounding debut that reinvents the spy thriller for the 21st century.
A lone man, Peanut, escapes a labor camp in the dead of night, fleeing across the winter desert of north-west China.
Two decades earlier, he was a spy for the British; now Peanut must disappear on Beijing's surveillance-blanketed streets. Desperate and ruthless, he reaches out to his one-time MI6 paymasters via crusading journalist Philip Mangan, offering military secrets in return for extraction.
But the secrets prove more valuable than Peanut or Mangan could ever have known... and not only to the British.

Not Bad...Not Bad At All

Kind of a different read after all the special op's butt kicking characters I have subjected myself to

Jqltr ,

Exciting read

Well drawn characters. Plot a little predictable. I hope his other books come out in English soon.

Deacon Dukes ,

Excellent book!

Unlike John le Carre's novels, which I enjoy, this realistic spy thriller ends with something more than disappointment and emptiness. It is very well written, very realistic and also very satisfying.
