    This is the kind of book from the era of Ludlum and reminiscent of the book James Clavell wrote, like Taipan Shogun Oriental based tales of adventure and complex thrillers.The book has several tracks it is running on one of them being Jake Maroc special agent of an American spy department by the name of Quarry The book is advertised as a Jake Maroc story but his story is the closing part of the whole story set up in the book While he is hunting an elusive assassin who did take kidnap his wi This is the kind of book from the era of Ludlum and reminiscent of the book James Clavell wrote, like Taipan Shogun Oriental based tales of adventure and complex thrillers.The book has several tracks it is running on one of them being Jake Maroc special agent of an American spy department by the name of Quarry The book is advertised as a Jake Maroc story but his story is the closing part of the whole story set up in the book While he is hunting an elusive assassin who did take kidnap his wife to Japan he and his squad lose their live in a clear ambush he never saw coming He then alone starts tracking the man who took his wife and with the next confrontation he ends up on the hitlist of his own company.The there is the story of the Russian female director who tries to mark out her own fiefdom among the power hungry elite of the Russian government, her story is one of a smart and beautiful woman who is underestimated by her male superiors They will pay a price for their shortsightedness.Then there is the story of a Chinese man who wants to save the Chinese from themselves and is involved in the creation of the modern China with an endgame that is rather grand and has to do with the safety of China and Hong Kong, he is the puppet master called the JIAN This whole book is well written and feels at the end the prologue of the story that continues in the next book of this series You will want to rad the next installment to find out what is is that created such a frantic murder mayhem in the first book and what the endgame is actually about.A tour the force of writing by a writer that in my teens blew me away and the sex stuff kinda was over my head anyhow As an older person I read a very different novel than in my teens This writer now does the new Bourne books but I actually prefer his earlier work like this one I am still looking for a hardcover version of black Heart to reread it and exchange my old paperback copy While I always enjoyed the oriental adventure books like nobody did better than Lustbader I never eased in the martial arts movies, the books always feltgrown up.Anyhow I really enjoyed a reread of an old friend that pleasantly surprised me in its intricacy of plotting a tale

    One of my favourite all time authors surely know how to spin a suspense action novel with some historical facts and an array of fictional and factual characters intertwining in his stories Of course I used to love these sorts of booksas a teen for their sex and action themes but ,now I find myself also very much enticed by plot s developement and background stories, and to top it all of ,secret societies works and goals.Interesting and pretty captivating to the last page.

    Brilliant web of intrigue and spy fast action carrying you all across the globe and back in time giving one an inkling of how things worked in China in the early 1900 s Definitely an author to look out for Busy with the next book in the Maroc series and it is just as brilliant.

    An all around blockbusterAs in his famous Ninja novels, this first installment in the China Maroc series was an absolute blockbuster Filled with sprawling characters, a seamless kaleidoscope of storylines come together to give us an action saga fit for tv screens Typically rich in substance set against the backdrop of communist China and the later years of the Cold War, it is filled with all the cool elements of an action thriller action, violence, intrigue and a lot of sex

    Typical Asian based spy thriller that Van Lustbader has written This particular one bounces around between China, Hong Kong, Japan, Russia and the U.S The ending I found a little disappointing The most interesting parts were his incorporating Chinese history into the story This indicates I probably should read an actual history book on the subject I read several of his previous books shortly after graduating college maybe I ve outgrown these An entertaining read though if this is your gen Typical Asian based spy thriller that Van Lustbader has written This particular one bounces around between China, Hong Kong, Japan, Russia and the U.S The ending I found a little disappointing The most interesting parts were his incorporating Chinese history into the story This indicates I probably should read an actual history book on the subject I read several of his previous books shortly after graduating college maybe I ve outgrown these An entertaining read though if this is your genre

    Non siamo all altezza del grande Nicholas Linnear, ma anche Jake Maroc e le sue avventure sanno come emozionare il lettore.Ottime le digressioni, soprattutto per comprendere personaggi altrimenti criptici come Nichiren, Shi Zilin e Tre Giuramenti Tsun.Sinceramente, non avevo ancora letto il secondo volume, mi domando se tutta l ingerenza dei russi proposta da Lustbader trover poi una sua collocazione finale nella storia perch al momento ha solo rallentato la narrazione.

  7. Luca Cozzi says:

    Trama troppo intricata che costringe spesso tornare indietro nella lettura Lo stile non fluido e scorrevole anche se nel complesso ben scritto Appaiono inesatte alcune situazioni ipotizzate dall autore per esempio a met degli anni Ottanta l Unione Sovietica non era pi in grado di nuocere a nessuno, tanto meno alla Cina Tutto sommato un buon romanzo ma la differenza tra l autore e fuoriclasse del calibro di Ken Follett evidente.

    Ho iniziato a capire qualcosa degli intrighi che si celano in Jian solo dopo la pagina 360 Dopo tutto in discesa Bella la rappresentazione storica e filosofica delle tre nazioni protagoniste Ti lascia un po con un e ora Ma so che c un seguito.Nichiren protagonista indiscusso per me del libro e che bello leggere tecniche con nome giapponese dell aikido

    If you like the book, you need to read the second one in the series, Shan.

    Amazing spy thriller book A bit too romantic for my taste, but the rest of it is hard to beat It might be a bit confusing at start, but if the reader is sharp, he she will notice the main fabula elements and will start feeling excited and anxious about what might happen next.I loved reading it, even read it like 10 times over the course of several years I am happy I never met in real people like the Jian character, it would make me feel way too much insignificant.
