Abstract:

A contemporary Washington mystery with a high tech, China twist ... A €brilliantly-conceived spy novel introducing seven engaging characters whose lives are transformed by crisis. € It begins as a drinking club in an academic backwater on the Stanford €University campus of the late 1970s. A post-Nixon/post-Mao generation of China scholars plots to make a better world. Suddenly, the U.S. recognizes the People's Republic of China. Intense demand arises for the unique skills The Mandarin Club members possess. € Now, yesterday's dreamers are today's policy-makers and pundits, patriots and spies. Their intimately intertwined past thrusts them together into an international crisis straight from tomorrow's headlines, as America, China, and Taiwan stumble toward war. € Told sequentially from the perspective of each of the Stanford originals, the fast-paced tale takes us behind the scenes of rogue intelligence operations and high tech smuggling, from Washington and Beijing to the wild coastal towns of California.
