The story then goes back and forth to pre and post WWII, covering the years 1941 – 1953, As the story unfolds bit by bit, long buried secrets are revealed, including the story surrounding Will’s love affair in the early 40’s with Trudy, a beautiful socialite.

A Book Sanctuary said:

Set in Hong Kong before, during and after the Japanese occupation of the Second World War, this is the story of a local community, a cast of colourful characters, ex-pats, local Chinese, lots of parties, secrets, shady dealings and the hardships and effects of war and occupation.
