Product Description

About the Author

Anthony Grey became a foreign correspondent with Reuters after beginning a career in provincial journalism first in Scotland, then in Norfolk where he was born and educated. He reported on the Cold War from East Berlin, Prague, Warsaw, Budapest, Sophia and Bucharest for two years before being assigned to China in early 1967 to cover the Cultural Revolution. He was then the only British journalist resident in the Chinese capital and in the high summer of that year, through no fault or merit of his own, he became the focus of worldwide headlines when he was seized as a hostage by Mao Tse-tungs's Red Guards. He became the most publicised western prisoner of the Cold War era and the first international political hostage of modern times. Following his release, he went on to establish himself as a radio and television broadcaster and a best-selling international historical novelist, focussing mainly but not exclusively on the Far East.

An excellent novel combining all the appropriate fictional elements with historical details of interest to the student of Vietnam. Highly recommended to anybody who enjoys a blockbuster.
