The main events of "The Handover Murders" are set against the volatile political situation in 1997 Hong Kong, immediately before, the same day as and shortly after the handover of sovereignty of the British colony to the Peoples' Republic of China. Intertwined with this, a story from the past unrolls against a changing the Japanese invasion and occupation of Hong Kong during WWII, the influx of refugees from mainland China, and 1960s and 1970s corruption in the Hong Kong Civil Service.“Fans of Detective fiction are in for a treat with this well-written, classically structured, and superbly characterised narrative. There are few novels that one can say are hard to put down, but this is one of them.” Lawrence Gray, Founding President, Hong Kong Writers’ Circle;Author of the novels, "Cop Show Heaven" and "Adam’s Franchise"; and the short story collection, "Odds and Sods".
