John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger 2014


Adam Brookes

Night Heron

Published by: Sphere

A British journalist in Peking is approached by a dissident on the run from a labour camp with the promise of valuable military information. If John Le Carre in his younger diplomatic years had ever been posted to China, this is the gripping spy novel he could have written. Fascinating insights into modern Chinese society and politics go hand in hand with totally believable, and hence fallible, characters and the pace never slows until a climax that grips like a vice. A modern thriller with an edge that takes the reader through a frantic race behind the bamboo curtain.
