Über diesen Titel

From Publishers Weekly:

British businessman Simon Young and his Eurasian son Matthew return in this sequel to The Mah-Jongg Spies, as two principals in an outsize cast of international characters. All are struggling to possess the Young company's miraculous computer, Apogee, which can ensure its controlling nation domination over the world. With the People's Republic of China planning to invade Taiwan, Qiu Qianwei of the Mainland Intelligence Agency goes after Apogee and narrowly survives deadly attacks in Thailand and Taiwan. In the Soviet Union, discussions on an alliance with Red China are under way; in Taiwan, sadistic Li Lu-tang holds Mat and his lover Mo Mei-Hua hostages to force Simon into surrendering the computer to the Taiwanese. The prisoners suffer in "the gates of exquisite view," where Li forces them to look at depictions of hideous tortures that they are about to undergo. Along with graphic descriptions of the fates that befall others, these scenes test the reader's endurance. There is rarely a moment to pause for breath between the agonizingly suspenseful events in a thriller that is worthy of its genre.

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
