What the reviewers have said about

“A colorful portrayal of the cruelty and deprivation of war, it's 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

“The melodrama pulls readers through the streets of Hong Kong and Macau during a tempestuous period, making this war-time romantic suspenser a pleasant enough escape.” —Publishers Weekly






What reviewers have said about

"When they work ... crime novels that illuminate a historical period are things of beauty. Caroline Petit's first novel falls into that illustrious company: She 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

"Petit gives readers the journey into womanhood as exotic action-adventure."
Publishers Weekly

"The reader will be compelled by the intrigue of the underworld of ancient art dealing."

"A decorative evocation of place and period."

"Under the amazingly sure hand of Petit, an Australian writer of rare abilities, every aspect of this terrific story comes to life."
Chicago Tribune
