Review quote

As crafted and complex as a set of Chinese boxes.... "Dragon s Eye" is a get-out-of-jail-free card for the imagination. ("The Independent") Gripping... an original in its genre. ("The Observer") Oakes scatters plenty of well-placed cul-de-sacs into his labyrinthine plot . . . there is plenty of meat in Dragon s Eye both literally and metaphorically to satisfy the crime addict. ("Independent on Sunday") Immerses the reader in the strange and wonderfully alien world of modern China. ("Scotland on Sunday")show more
