Book Description
 

YEAR OF THE WOMAN, THE by Jonathan Gash - SIGNED FIRST EDITION UK BOOK

See all titles by Jonathan Gash

KwayFay was once a "Cockroach Child", a homeless scavenger on Hong Kong's waterfronts. Now grown, she lives in a squatter shack on the mountain slopes, and commutes each day to her job as a lowly office clerk. She survives by paying bribes if she has to, and keeping silent when abused. Her only ally is Grandmother's Ghost.

Hong Kong is in ferment, for this is the time just before the Handover, when the Peoples Republic of China will repossess the Crown Colony. Hongs and Triads, underworld organisations above the law, are concerned, for China's policy is to eliminate criminal cliques.

The head of a Triad learns of the impoverished "no-family" girl who talks to ghosts, and wonders if she is a way out of his dilemma - but superstition is also forbidden by the incoming regime. It seems the girl might be the last chance for his Triad's survival.
