AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From Hong Kong's glittering mansions to its shady opium divans, from its wealthy elite to its brutal triad societies, from warrior monks to merciless politicians, Scattered Monkeys is a heart-stopping, exhilarating thriller.

'Hong Kong, 1976. A family at war, an empire the prize . . .

'Brendan Murray arrives in the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong in 1976 to serve in the Royal Hong Kong Police Force. Despite five years' experience as a cop in Australia, he discovers he has much to learn, especially when faced with three formidable women linked by both business and blood . . .

'Jenny Woo, once a street urchin and now the owner of an infamous nightclub, seeks Brendan's friendship – something that does not go unnoticed by his scheming superiors in search of a high-level informant...

'Kwan Su-lin, a dedicated doctor who suffered horrifically at the hands of MaoTse-tung's infamous Red Guard, has allowed her remarkable martial arts skills to lie dormant. Until

now . . .

'Georgina Merchant, CEO of the most powerful company in Asia, a striking beauty, a ruthless adversary, a woman not to be crossed...

'When the mighty Merchant Corporation comes under threat, Brendan and his colleagues in the RHKP are drawn into a web of intrigue, with the stakes climbing higher at every turn.' (Publication summary)
