RED DRAGON RISING: SHADOWS OF WAR by Larry Bond - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK
See all titles by Larry Bond.
With Red Dragon, bestselling authors Larry Bond and Jim DeFelice launch an exciting new four-book series in which global warming results in a series of wars that sweep over Asia, pitting the United States against China, North Korea against South Korea, and with Japan, Vietnam, India, and Pakistan joining in, the world will never be the same.
Building off the World War III premise Larry Bond helped Tom Clancy to establish (Red Storm Rising), this new series looks at the world under an omnipresent Chinese superpower. When rapid climate change leads to mass riots in China, a new Communist premier seeks to relieve pressure by marching on traditional Chinese enemies in Southeast Asia. Desperately coping with its own problems, the US wants to avoid nuclear war at all costs - but ultimately must fight to preserve world peace.
In 2014, China must cope with widespread riots and a devastating drought; the U.S., where gas costs $14.39 a gallon, is suffering through a recession and a housing crisis; Europe has problems just as serious. When China decides to invade Vietnam in an effort to save its starving populace, the U.S. determines to aid Vietnam to insure the world order. Compelling characters include CIA operative Mara Duncan, who's based in Bangkok, Thailand; Maj. Zeus Murphy, who simulates a war game called Red Dragon (which pits China against the U.S. under code names) and proudly drives a gas-guzzling Corvette; and American scientist Josh MacArthur, who's on the run in Vietnam from a Chinese commando and martial arts master, Lt. Jing Yo. Constant action makes this a must read for military adventure fans!
