As Hong Kong readies itself for return to China in 1997, powerful business interest, including the Mafia, brace for the ramifications ... and are prepared to do anything to stop the lease to England from expiring. In London, Brigadier General Charles Ferguson has learned of the existence of the Chungking Covenant, a secret document that was negotiated in China in 1944 by Lord Mountbatten with Mao Tse-tung. In Hong Kong, sinister business interests have also learned of the document's existence. With the delicate balance of Sino-British-American relations at risk, Sean Dillon, the brilliant former terrorist turned hero of Thunder Point, and Ferguson are under direct orders from the prime minister to stop the document from coming to light ... at all costs
