Spotlight: A Devil in Hong Kong by David Harris Lang



A Devil in Hong Kong by David Harris Lang
Genre:Thriller
Synopsis: 
What lurks behind the skyscrapers in glittering Hong Kong? David Harris Lang’s latest thriller, A Devil in Hong Kong, shows us the underbelly of modern day Hong Kong at its most dangerous. Although a work of fiction, Lang integrates real historical treasures into his work. When an ancient burial suit has gone missing, three different factions battle each other out to recover it, all while there is a psychotic killer on the loose—Lang's action-packed book details a ferocious battle between Chinese, Japanese and Burmese divisions who are in a brutal competition to retrieve Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty’s missing 2000 year old jade burial suit. Detectives Ian Hamilton and Angela Chung find themselves chasing a deranged serial killer who leaves behind a trail of mutilated bodies, strung together like traditional Burmese puppets.
Weaving history and indelible details of Asian culture into his story, Lang tells a tale like no other. He is a current resident of Hong Kong, has lived and worked in Asia much of his life. Besides being a prolific author of Asian-based thrillers, he is an international architect who brings an indelible ‘sense of place’ to his writing as well as a deep understanding of Asian cultures, locales, and customs. His vivid fight scenes come from a life-long practice of the martial arts. A Devil in Hong Kong is David Lang’s third book.
Author Loren Schechter calls A Devil in Hong Kong “a blood-rousing romp through the Asian underworld in a search for a priceless jade burial suit of a Chinese emperor. Get ready for plenty of action, numerous plot twists, vivid settings, and a psychopathic villain you will long remember.” John Oliver writes that he “had a great ride following this action packed quest for an ancient artifact through 1937 China. Villains include the cruelest of Nazi officers and maniacal Japanese military commanders who were based on historical figures. Opium dealers, crazed priests, bandits, monks intertwine in a saga of pursuit and escape through the Chinese countryside.”
