Product Description

1937 China; the Japanese Imperial Army is chewing up China. Three middle-aged friends, Westerners, who have lived in China for decades, are about to lose everything to the onslaught. Leave China or die. As their world collapses around them, a fur trader from New York, a Russian, and a Rabbi from Germany, learn that a race of Chinese Jews is about to become victims of a German and Japanese alliance to acquire a valuable ruby, supposedly hidden in their village of Kaifeng.

The three friends embark on one last adventure before leaving China, to save the Jews of Kaifeng and the jewel. Can they reach Kaifeng before the alliance bent on the destruction of the village gets to them? It’s a deadly pursuit across 1937 China, through Japanese controlled territory, Chinese bandits, and countless dangers and obstacles.The only clues to its location are written in a cryptic, twenty-year-old diary of a disillusioned Chinese Rabbi; the Journal of Rabbi Levy Wang. The three friends are tested to the extreme in a desperate attempt to warn their friends and find the jewel.

5.0 out of 5 stars An action/thriller historical fiction set in Japanese occupied China, 1937 18 February 2015

An action/thriller historical fiction set in Japanese occupied China, 1937

I 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.

The author has spent a great deal of his life in Asia, and describes the different settings of his story as someone deeply familiar with the everyday Chinese life. His own father and grandfather were successful fur traders in 1930's China, and their own escape from the coming Japanese occupation was the obvious starting point of his tale.

Good read. I finished off in two days,

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful first novel! 31 July 2014

A wonderful story of the history of China, Germans, Japanese, and a group of Jews during the WWII. Interesting characters; colorful word pictures of the landscape. What makes this novel of particular interest is the author's connection to the very real men who inspired this telling.
