  1. Bolt Action

    Posted Sep 19th 2010, 12:00am by James Kidd

    ... James Kidd Bolt Action by Charlie Charters Hodder and Stoughton, HK$91 Bolt Action is a thriller that cliches seemed to be made for: high-octane, high concept, explosive action.

In The Venetian Betrayal, this research leads to the final resting place of Alexander the Great. This brings together plots involving ...

    Posted Mar 29th 2009, 12:00am by Staff Reporter

    ... Rosanne Barrett Tai-Pan James Clavell (Hodder) James Clavell's epic elicits a love-hate response from most Hongkongers. The fast-paced best-selling historical novel, set during the colonisation of Hong Kong in 1841, tells the story of the rivalry between tai-pan (supreme leader) Dirk Straun and his enemy Tyler Brock. Red-haired Straun runs trading company The Noble House, ...
