'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:
