Description
Information
'Hong Kong in 1996. Here, as the days tick away towards "the Handover" to China, two last-ditch Brits existing in a fusty time-warp - Betty Mullard from Balham, who has been in the colony for almost half a century, and Bunt (short for "Baby Bunting"), her 43-year-old son who still lives with her - become belatedly aware that their time is running out... Theroux's taut tale about this quivers with resonance, menace and suspense... The work of one of our most compulsive story-tellers on peak form.'
Sunday Times

'A writer at the height of his powers... long after the book is finished, the taste of Hong Kong is vivid in the reader's mouth.'
