Theft of weapons and nuclear devices bring the Chinese Spymaster and various leaders of the Chinese government together to solve the theft, and where the most likely targets are.
A great story with good character interaction. The descriptions and details are amazing, and let the reader develop a clear picture as to what is occurring and when.
There is more detail than is necessary for the storyline, and a few minor grammatical errors that in no way detract from the story.
