Publisher's Summary

The "Chinaman" understood death. Jungle-skilled, silent, and lethal, he had killed for the Viet Cong and then for the Americans. He had watched helpless as his two eldest daughters were raped and killed by Thai pirates. Now, all that was behind him. Quiet, hard-working, and unassuming, he was building up his South London take-away business - until the day his wife and youngest daughter were murdered by an IRA bomb. Then he began to ask the authorities who were the men responsible, what was being done - and was turned away, fobbed off, treated as a nuisance. That was when the Chinaman, denied justice, decided on revenge...and went back to war.


What the Critics Say

" The Chinaman is a gem of a thriller, perfectly constructed and full of the unexpected." ( Library Journal)

New to Stephen Leather

Well I first read the Solitary Man and now went back to this one and found it more gripping. I gave The Solitary Man 5 out of 5 before reading this one and actually found it better. wish audible would allow me to go back to rate this one as 5 and the previous as 4 but actually both deserve 5s! Heartbreaking in parts but stirring in others this book reinforces my thoughts to go through all the stephen leather books on audible.

At last Stephen Leather on audio!

I have read nearly every Stephen Leather book as they have been published and have constantly scoured the net for them on audio.
The Chinaman is in my opinion one of his best and the audio version certainly doesn't disappoint with Russell Boulters narration being a very pleasent surprise. He does it at just the right pace and carries off all the various accents extremely well.
Although a relatively easy listen this story contains enough twists and detail in the characters to keep the interest going.
I look forward to more of his books on audio soon.
