AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Shortly after arriving in Sydney, Australia, a brilliant heart surgeon visiting from China is drawn into a deadly game whereby he must kill a stranger or lose somebody close to him. Our hero unexpectedly finds himself at the centre of a deadly, complex game when he is delivered a box with a murderous message. As a doctor dedicated to preserving life, he refuses to play - he refuses to kill. Then those he loves most, his family, come under threat. Kidnap and murder are just the start. This is the thrilling story of a man fighting against impossible odds to bring his family to safety, using everything at his disposal to outwit his unknown opponents amidst terrible danger.'
