'Adam Williams has written a true epic, spanning many decades and incorporating real events of magnitude. It is not easy to explain historical context entertainingly, but Williams pulls it off.' -- The Times on THE DRAGON'S TAIL 'This is a magnificent climax to Adam Williams' epic trilogy covering the history of modern China ... An extremely well plotted spy novel ... it is a great read with strong and sympathetic characters struggling to maintain their humanity in the midst of the terrible events which engulfed China after 1949. The sections relating to the Chinese labour camps and the bitter betrayals of the survivors ... raise the novel into the realm of high literature. Many people will read this for many years to come to understand China better.' -- Jasper Becker, author of The Chinese on THE DRAGON'S TAIL 'A bewitching, unpredictable spy thriller. A harrowing but noble love story. A mirror onto half a century of Chinese history - I have no doubt that this will become a classic.' -- James Kynge, author of China Shakes the World on THE DRAGON'S TAIL 'This book is poetic and romantic in parts, harrowing and tragic in others ... Persevere when the going gets tough and you'll be richly rewarded.' **** -- Heat on THE EMPEROR'S BONES 'Epic ... a story that suggests history is repeated not as farce, but as adventure and romance.' -- Financial Times on THE EMPEROR'S BONES 'An epic historical and romantic story as well as an impressive first novel.' -- Sunday Mirror on THE PALACE OF HEAVENLY PLEASURE
