eBook Description: Although it's the twenty-first century, millennia-old tensions are again tearing China apart. The Mandarin-speaking northern Chinese are seen by the Cantonese-speaking southern Chinese as robbing them of their money, power and culture. And they have had enough. A cabal of rich Hong Kong businessmen have set up a plan to free them from the northern Chinese by treating to use a weapon so terrible as to frighten those ruling in Beijing into submission. That weapon is Dragon Fire, a man-made virus so virulent that it would kill every man, woman and child in Beijing in days and all of northern China in a week. The north replies with a threat of their own--retaliatory nuclear annihilation. Glen Martin, a leading biotechnologist from Silicon Valley, inadvertently becomes involved and is soon recruited by Beijing to help find a counter to this terrible threat. Together with Jennifer Liang, a beautiful and brilliant virologist, he races against the clock to in an apparently hopeless quest. Yet there can be no question of failure--they must succeed or there will be no China. This is a techno-thriller filled with suspense, intrigue, lust and passion.
