4.0 out of 5 stars An Asian Divnci Code, only less predicatble, 3 Oct. 2010
By 
This review is from: The Fan Tan Players (Paperback)
A great book with plenty of cliff hangers at the end of chapters, but you don't role your eyes when you start the next chapter as they are not predictable. Secondary characters such as Costas are well developed and keep the reader interested in the developing fortunes of all the books characters, not just the two main ones: Iain and Nadia.
The first section of the book is somewhat of a detective story with the emerging love story in the background, thereafter the love story gets begins in earnest and the main protagonists 9-5 job takes a back seat and the book starts to get traction. The final chapter covers the period of Japanese occupation in Hong Kong is the high point of the book - the attention to detail of the setting and one assumes the realities of life in a Japanese Internment Camp make it the most compelling section of the book.
The location for the Fan Tan players will provides plenty of landmarks for those who have visited or lived in Maccau and to a lesser extent Hong Kong, but an absence of knowledge of these places does not take away from the book.
