Summary
" 'Two tigers cannot live on one mountain'- Chinese proverb. There can only be one winner in a battle. A truce, the Chinese say, merely delays the inevitable. In Korea, two brothers fight on opposing sides in a war where black market profiteering is rife, and patriotism and honour have lost their meanings. When they depart the battlefield, one is a hero, the other a traitor. One brother, General Lee Kwan Man-hop, returns to the volatile political climate of Beijing and an uncertain future in the communist People's Republic of China. The other, Wing Commander James Merchant RAF, goes home to Hong Kong to restore a family business. A house plagued with treachery and haunted by tales of a long lost fortune in gold, supposedly the bequest of an illegal, secret, triad society. From the Korean War to the Cultural Revolution, TWO TIGERS, ONE MOUNTAIN is the long-awaited sequel to THE TIME OF THE DRAGONS and a dramatic story of a family dynasty on a violent course to destruction. ."--Provided by publisher
