Product Description

Warlord China, 1927. Seconded to China by a vengeful Indian Army high command, Gurkha Captain John Caspasian finds Shanghai a cesspit of despair and corruption as refugees pour into the violent, disease-ridden city. He escapes on a solo mission to contact a general whom the British see as a bulwark against the revolutionary leader Chiang Kai-shek.
Once he has left the relative safety of the International Settlement for a gunboat on the Yangtze though, Caspasian smells danger. The supposedly friendly General Mok turns out to be a bloodthirsty sadist whose armoured train has struck terror into the Chinese countryside.
And Caspasian has made two implacable enemies. One is a Chinese criminal who first clashed with him over a rescued bar girl. The other is a former British officer who once saved Caspasian's life...

Format: Paperback
Very much in the tradition of Boy's Own literature, espiced a la Indiana Jones, with touches of Buchan's Hannay, and a lot of influence from comics like CORTO MALTESE or TINTIN...
Really a must of entertainment (a la Ian Fleming and if you really think it over the hero is a very well placed candidate as prospective father (legitim or not) for James Bond...
Enough said, if you like an uncomplicated very good action&adventure novel get this one...

I had just downloaded the Kindle app and I was looking for something to read. I picked out two books and there they were. I knew nothing about either one of them but they looked like action/adventure novels. I chose to read The General's Envoy first. It had all I was looking for. It takes place after the fall of Imperial China when the country is overrun by warlords, foreigners, communist, and gangs. It is a non-stop action, intrigue, loyalty, betrayal, thriller. I liked it and would recommend it to anyone who likes a little violence, close calls, and a hard look at the British Empire. I was happy to find out it is only one of a series of books 1to 5. I read 2 first. I will read 1,3,4,&5 as soon as I read the other book I downloaded.
