For Neville 'Bunt' Mullard and his mother, Betty, Hong Kong is part of Britain; it is home. But now ninety-nine years of colonial rule are about to end... When Bunt first meets Mr Hung, a well-spoken gentleman from the Chinese mainland, he pays him little heed. And when Mr Hung offers him a handsome sum for the family business, Bunt refuses him out of hand. Yet it soon grows clear that Mr Hung will accept no refusals. Then a young woman from Bunt's factory vanishes, and he is forced for the first time in his life to make decisions that matter. But against Bunt's new good intentions are pitted the will of Mr Hung and the looming threat of the ultimate betrayal.
Very good condition, with some light tanning to the pages.
