Hong Kong in the mid 90s... At the core of this multi-layered thriller is a police investigation into the most daring armed robbery in the colony's history - and the menacing international conspiracies which surround it. A commando-style raid on Shatin Racecourse nets HK $270, 000, 000 and causes the violent deaths of several police guards. A special detective team discovers this was perpetrated by ex-military from mainland China, and funded by local triads. But what significance has the headless corpse of a Westerner dumped among the garbage of a Kowloon alley? With the handover to China only a few years off, nothing must threaten Hong Kong's stability. Though the police task-force works day and night, not even a total security alert can prevent disaster. In a chilling time-race, cops and their shadowy opponents clash in a sequence of explosive engagements throughout Hong Kong, Macao, the Chinese mainland, and even Tokyo.a#39;Spaghetti that might save your si fat, a#39; responded Buchanan testily, keeping his eyes fixed on the screen as he ...
