Product Description

About the Author

Andrew Woodward was born in London to Scottish parents. He travelled extensively before settling down to reside in Sydney, Australia for over a decade. However, his desire to seek new challenges led him to a short sojourn in the deserts of the Middle East before finding his true calling as an author in Hong Kong. That fascinating city is also the location for his debut novel, The Water Dragon featuring DI Chambers. Andrew released the sequel, The Fire Walker, set in Scotland in mid-2012. The third installment of the DI Chambers series - The Silverbird's Sign, set in Hong Kong and sub-Saharan Africa (released Jan 2013), is a continuation of the author's split narrative approach. His writing style in the first two novels encompassed the traditional thriller and detective mode of writing, while his third novel saw him switch to the classic whodunnit plot line. The combination of murder-mystery with a rich and evocative travel writing style help to bring the settings to the fore, making the locations an integral part of the narrative that add a depth and reality rarely found in the genre.

I've just finished this book and feel I have to put in my two penneth. This was a thriller which kept me entertained and an impressively well researched book of the area (I lived in Hong Kong for 2 years). Clever and gripping, would recommend to anyone, especially if they've been or are thinking of going to Hong Kong.
The start of a series? Enjoy.

after no1 finishes it leaves you a bit in the hanging what are the consequences of his not doing what he is supposed to do in Hongkong...so you get no2....and again cannot put the book down...but to start with this is a very good start to a crime novel series! Start it and you will not be disappointed! Loved them all.

A fairly laboured story that I managed to work out about halfway through. Plenty of references to locations in Hong Kong that will be familiar to anyone who has visited, but I was disappointed with the ending and the relationship between the two central characters which didn't really go anywhere.

i was introduced to this book by a neighbour.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommended it to anyone who enjoys murder mysteries. The author cleverly takes you around Hong Kong as if you were actually there. Guessing to the end who the murderer is. Cant wait for the follow on books. well done to the author.

A fast-paced, page-turning thriller that cleverly weaves suspense and gory visions of the fruits of a serial killer's labors with a sweet and hopeful romance. I found myself certain at many times of who the killer was throughout the book, only to change my mind as the latest clues were revealed. The ending not only kept me speeding through to the end to uncover the identity of the killer, but also kept me up late at night as I could not put it down. Recommend this read for when you have some quality, uninterrupted time to lose yourself in the world woven by Woodward's characters.

A really enjoyable charge around Hong Kong and its islands. Well thought out, well written, lots of interesting details and locations. Chambers and Li are thrown together and do their best to out-guess a murderer on a mission. I bought the pc edition, and got so engrossed the batteries on my laptop ran out. Looking forward to the sequel, 4 stars for The Water Dragon.
