Journalist and SIS (MI6) contract agent George Quant arrives on the run in Beijing. Estranged from Karen, his Moscow-based handler, George is thrust into Asia's clandestine underworld of gentleman spies, nefarious business people, and murderous Party members. With his past catching up with him, George discovers that not everyone in China can be trusted.
At the centre of George Quant's dilemma lie two men: investor-adventurer Pierce de Havilland, and Karen's trusted contact known only as "Ho". Both successful in their own right, the rivals offer diverging perspectives on China's future. As their intentions grow clearer, George recognises that an important choice looms--adopting the life of a millionaire fugitive, or accepting the call of a higher moral imperative.
From his initial assignment in Cambodia in the late '90s--between the drinks, drugs and dangerous card games--George's high octane adventures spill across London, Moscow, and Beijing, before culminating in Hong Kong. Alarmed by Karen's increasing demands and damaged by her unrequited love, he begins to search for a way to disentangle himself from an expanding web of deception.

A page turning novel full of intrigue, double standards, espionage, having to live on the edge and change not only your game plan but your life as well on a daily basis.
The story covers two seperate continents Europe and Asia. The two dominant forces of Russia and China both want a computer programme that controls all the systems in the world. Meet George Quant the new James Bond who has to work out very quickly who he can and cannot trust He is also haunted by what happened in Russia where he had to flee from very quickly.
A novel which will ask questions about the worlds computer system, can one programme control or corrupt them and whoever has that programme will they then control the world. Alongside this we have George who has the programme but who can he trust and give it to.
The intriguing factor about the book is that two different countries with different cultures and beliefs want the same thing and will use whatever methods necessary to achieve that goal. I think the author has created a character who will be in several more escapades, hopefully!
