Series: Jake Grafton
(From the publisher):
When Jake Grafton is sent to Hong Kong to find out how deeply involved the American consul-general is in a political money-raising scandal, his wife, Callie, accompanies him. The situation they find in Hong Kong is far from relaxing. After the communist government shuts down a faltering foreign bank, the city is on the verge of civil war, and Jake finds that his old friend, the consul-general, is right in the middle of it.
When Grafton's wife is kidnapped by a rebel faction, the battle-tested admiral finds himself at the vortex of a high-tech civil war with the future of China on the line. Drawing on the skills of CIA burglar Tommy Carmellini and aided by a team of Chinese patriots willing to die for their nation's freedom, Jake Grafton proves, once again, why he is today's most popular action-adventure hero.
