A Devil in Hong Kong
by David Harris Lang
On a snowy day in the year 889, Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty had an epiphany: he was not immortal. His jade carver created the most beautiful jade burial suit in history, finishing just three weeks before the Han Emperor died. When the priceless two-thousand-year-old jade burial suit suddenly goes missing in modern Hong Kong, a brutal competition to find it ensues between rival Chinese, Burmese, and Japanese factions. As they battle for the priceless artifact, a psychotic killer with a Maori tattoo on his face surfaces leaving a trail of dismembered corpses strung together like traditional Burmese puppets. Detectives Ian Hamilton and Angela Cheung follow a trail of hacked bodies and terror through contemporary Hong Kong in their search for the killer.
David Harris Lang, a current resident of Hong Kong, has lived and worked in Asia much of his life. Besides being a prolific author of Asian-based thrillers, he is an international architect who brings an indelible sense of place’ to his writing as well as a deep understanding of Asian cultures, locales, and customs. His vivid fight scenes come from a life-long practice of the martial arts. A Devil in Hong Kong is David Lang’s third book.

In my first book, ‘The Journal of Rabbi Levy Wang’, I envisioned Harrison Ford playing the hero, Harry Cohen.
Hmm, who could play Ian Hamilton in ‘The Witch of Wanchai’? Shall we ask Tom Cruise?
In ‘A Devil In Hong Kong’ Liam Neeson would be good for the bad guy, Andy Duggan. He would certainly look scary with a Maori tattoo on his face!
