About the Series: The Handover Mysteries
A suspenseful and vivid trilogy capturing the mood of China's periphery during the years of the handover of Hong Kong to the mainland. Three full-length mystery novels take journalist Claire Raymond from the HK of departing British colonials to the coastal factories of early foreign joint ventures in Guangdong Province to a Tibet coping with the construction of a highspeed rail exploiting local labor under slave conditions. The Handover Mysteries feature an authentic feeling for the sights, smells and conflicts of Asia two decades ago—with resonance for issues that continue to this day.
