Description
In this sequel to the wonderfully atmospheric novel The Fat Man's Daughter ("catches the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of Hong Kong, China and Manchuria in 1937 as they filter through the senses of a fascinating young woman," Chicago Tribune), Leah Kolbe has inherited her father's Hong Kong antiques business just as the Japanese are swarming over mainland China. When they invade the city, her fiancé Jonathan is swept up with other prisoners of war, while Leah escapes to Macau. There she receives a perilous proposition from the British consulate: seduce and obtain strategic secrets from the son of a Japanese arms manufacturer.

"A colorful portrayal of the cruelty and deprivation of war, [the novel is] peppered with vividly portrayed historical personages (among them newly married Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gellhorn), and it stars a plucky protagonist who continues to land on her feet."—Booklist
