9780141391458: In the Dark (Fiction in Translation)

'Cracking another country's cipher is an undercover fight to the death...'

Hidden deep in the mountains, the recruits at 'Unit 701', China's secret services, operate in a dark, shadowy world. There is the 'wind-listener', a blind surveillance officer who can hear sounds from miles away; the beautiful, unstable maths genius who meets a violent end; the old man who deciphers codes in his dreams; the spy who recounts a dangerous mission from beyond the grave.

In this story of conspiracies, geniuses, revolutionaries and terrible moral choices, people sacrifice everything for a world of secrets - until, ultimately, it destroys them.

Review:

In the Dark has all the hallmarks of a thriller... its immense readability derives from the pervading air of mystery, the Orwellian depiction of Chinese state security... A twisting, riddling and compellingly original exploration of thwarted geniuses and restricted lives (Malcolm Forbes National)

A compound of documentary, mystery and folk-tale - an unfamiliar voice from the centre of a world of secrets (The Times)

About the Author:

Mai Jia (the pseudonym of Jiang Benhu) is arguably the most successful writer in China today. His books are constant bestsellers, with total sales over three million copies. He is hailed as the forerunner of Chinese espionage fiction, and has created a unique genre that combines spycraft, code-breaking, crime, human drama, historical fiction, and metafiction. He has won almost every major award in China, including the highest literary honor - the Mao Dun Award.
