Lovejoy in Hong Kong
Hong Kong - one of the world's most exciting and colourful cities.
The Triads - violent, secretive and totally ruthless, their Hong Kong is a city no tourist dare visit.
The Jade Women - famed for their beauty, they possess charms few men can resist...
Which proves to be a highly combustible mix for Lovejoy - East Anglia's hottest antique dealer - on the run from some sticky problems back home. But for someone with no money and no passport, Hong Kong can be an alarmingly dangerous place. Especially when the Triads get involved and Lovejoy finds himself up against murder - oriental style.
