(From the publisher):
The Chinaman understood death.
Jungle-skilled, silent and lethal, he had killed for the Viet-Cong and then for the Americans.
Now all that was behind him. Quiet, hard working and unassuming, he was building up his South London take-away business.
Until the day his wife and youngest daughter were destroyed by an IRA bomb in a Knightsbridge department store.
Then, simply but persistently, he began to ask the authorities who were the men responsible, what was being done. And was turned away, fobbed off, treated as a nuisance.
Which was when the Chinaman, denied justice, decided on revenge. And went back to war.
