I Recommend This Book

Strongly

This book takes place while Hong Kong is still part of the British Empire. It starts of with two women being exchanged from Russia to Vienna by the British. Though at the time it is hard to tell what this has to do with anything, it is important to the story. 
Southeast Asia is a powder keg of espionage and intrigue. Something is happening and it involves the Russians. The British are trying to follow those involved but some misleads are involved and this story takes you from Vienna to London to Hong Kong to the coast of Japan. You have to stay on the move or you are left behind. 
Benjamin Foo has an interesting past but with the help of the triad is helping the secret British agents to find out what Ling is up to but can they find out what is happening in time.
