Book Description

"The Chinese Woman: The Barbados Conspiracy" is the first of a series of spy-suspense-thriller novels about a Chinese woman using the name, Li Mei, who is an intelligence officer (secret agent) for the Chinese Ministry of State Security.

In "The Barbados Conspiracy", Li Mei is sent to Seattle to abduct a powerful Triad boss, Wu Xing, and return him to China to stand trial. This is an assignment she eagerly accepts as she has a personal motive to see Wu Xing brought to justice. Her assignment is interrupted when she is reassigned to the Caribbean island of Barbados where an American general has arrived using a fake passport. Her investigation reveals a conspiracy that could change the course of history. She joins forces with FBI agent, Sean McNamara, who is in Barbados tracking a large drug shipment destined for the USA. The drug shipment becomes of secondary importance when a terrorist arrives in Barbados to meet with the conspirators. It soon becomes apparent to both Li Mei and McNamara that their lives are in danger when assassins arrive on the island to stop their investigation. Interwoven into the events in Seattle and Barbados is the dreaded Mei Hua Triad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Richly detailed, thrilling and loaded with suspense 17 Oct. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was thrilled. I admit, I'm not the biggest fan of crime novels. That said, I really enjoyed the book - especially the scenes that took place in China (which I am a big fan of :)...

I also got hooked into the plot - I certainly didn't "see it coming" and enjoyed how the story unfolded. It wasn't an easy book to put down. Very suspenseful, intriguing and I loved all the "true-life" details that make it believable.

I assumed that the Chinese woman would be a victim, love interest or a side-kick. What a refreshing surprise (without giving away the plot) to see that she's clearly the star of the story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story although the grammar could be improved 2 Sept. 2011
By ESS Mom - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the story-line and characters, but felt the writing was somewhat stilted, and at times improper grammar was used. I think this will improve in future books, and would certainly purchase the next in the series, as the characters are interesting and the plot held together well. I really liked the ending.
4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Li Mei our beautiful new 21st Century Female secret agent! 7 May 2014
By Frank E. Babb - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm addicted to detective and spy thriller stories and Brian Cox's new series involving Li Mei, a beautiful and deadly agent of the Chinese Ministry of State Security, is a heroine I love. This fast moving story takes place in China, Seattle, and the Barbados. Li Mei is sent to Seattle posing as a graduate student with the task of bringing back clandestinely to China for punishment a leader of the International criminal Mei Hua Triad organization. She soon meets socially Sean McNamara, an FBI agent, who has been assigned to investigate the Triad. Although they are immediately attracted to each other, they cannot let their personal feelings interfere with their official duties. As a former Royal Canadian Mounted Policeman, the author worked in the Major Crime section, Drug Squad and National Crime Intelligence Section (responsible for organized crime and terrorism). With this experience he informs the reader of the latest developments in organized crime, weaponry, technology, and espionage techniques. I'm about to start the next Chinese Woman book to see where Li Mei takes me this time.
5.0 out of 5 stars A great crime drama with a twist 22 Jan. 2014

Format:Kindle Edition
A great read that shows the interesting, but positive, interaction between the Chinese intelligence sevice, the FBI and the RCMP. Well written and tough to put down. Difficult to keep track of the Chinese names initially but that soon passed.
