When your enemy is your best friend...

In war, you can pretend to be someone you’re not. Yet, in war, people find out who you really are. Hong Kong, 1941.

Anglo-Australian civil servant Dominic Sotherly’s colonial sojourn in Hong Kong becomes complicated by his double life in both war and love. Enigmatic Englishwoman Gwen Harmison possesses secrets of her own — plus an unrelenting desire for liberty. From gaiety at the Peninsula Hotel to persecution both inside and outside of internment, the story journeys from war-ravaged Hong Kong to war-weary China.

From real history, meet the Chinese admiral who led Hong Kong’s daring ‘Great Escape’ and the Japanese Christian soldier who risked his life for the enemy. And, uniquely during the occupation of Hong Kong, discover how one Englishwoman made history in her defiance of Imperial Japan.

About the Author

Paul Letters is a novelist, journalist, broadcaster and part-time teacher of history and politics. He moved from London to the jungled fringes of Hong Kong in 2001. His earlier World War II novel, A Chance Kill, topped the South China Morning Post book charts. In addition to historical features, he writes opinion pieces and magazine articles.

Paul also broadcasts on Radio Television Hong Kong. His 'This Month in History' segment can be found as a podcast. Paul and his son James also present the chart-topping history podcast for kids and adults, 'Dad and Me Love History'. His website, and his daily on-this-day-in-World-War-Two twitter feed, can be found at paulletters.com. Previous book: A Chance Kill, ISBN 9781781323137
