1997. Hong Kong prepares to enter Chinese control. The commercial
empires have already made plans to leave, their vast assets telexed to
safety in a brilliant scheme code-named The Scroll of Benevolence.
But the ambitious General Lo Bing plots for supreme power in China –
and is determined to smash Benevolence.
Racing against time to preserve world peace, Gene Sangster of the CIA
and Konstantin Proshin of the KGB join forces to prove what Lo Bing most
wants to hide: that China possesses unimaginable military might.
Diana, Simon Young’s daughter, is trapped deep in China. Somehow she
must reach Hong Kong before the final countdown to Benevolence. Her only
hope rests with a handsome Chinese youth – but is he friend or enemy…?
