Description
As a lieutenant in the US Marine Corps--as handsome and cocky as Richard Gere--Michael Stuart was once considered an officer and a gentleman. But that's all changed. Now he's seen as a renegade, a traitor and a thief. Stuart is a man without a country . . . and perhaps without a prayer. Why? Because in a daring plot to foil the Japanese puppet regime in China, he set out to reinstate the country's true emperor. Known now as The Red Dragon, Stuart is a soldier of fortune in war-torn Manchuria--and a man of honor in a world of treachery. Stuart's latest adventure takes him from Peking to the Great Wall and beyond. He's in a race against time and against the Japanese super-spy known as the Hell-Cat, both of them in hot pursuit of an elusive black chest. For Stuart, the ultimate prize is one filled with mystery, power, and treasure--not only in the chest itself, but in the love of the beautiful woman who has sent him on this mission. . . . It was on Hubbard's second journey to East Asia that he met British Secret Service agent, Major Ian MacBean, who introduced him to "The Great Game," the geopolitical tug-of-war between China, Japan, and Britain. Hubbard also learned of the trade in stolen Chinese treasures, and was exposed to the secret criminal society known as The Red Dragon--inspiring this story of the same name. He has captured a singular time in this storied land. "Hubbard delivers a tidy finale that shows why he was one of the most popular genre writers of his generation." - Publishers Weekly
