Summary

In 1912, John Wade and his brother, William - children of the American consul - were kidnapped off the street in Chungking, China, and raised in the house of Eunuch Chang, the city's master criminal. Twenty-five years later, John is the eunuch's most valuable ward, a trained assassin and swindler, and William has become a talented forger.
On the brink of World War II, China is in chaos. When William betrays Eunuch Chang and escapes to central China, a place of ferocious warlords and bandits, John begins a desperate search to save his brother, while Eunuch Chang hunts them both.

What a ride!

Listening to this story reminded me of being read to by Mrs. Little, my 5th grade teacher. I was mesmerized. The story was set in China and had a cast of characters that boggles the mind. The plot raced along at break-neck speed and it was hard to shut it off. I was sorry when it was over. Have a listen and be transported to another time and place and feel like a kid again.

Thanks for remembering the dog

The story was good but I got lost with so much details about all the blood and guts.
