Two Tigers, One Mountain: Bruce
Venables: fabulous tale/Orient Lge TPB
The long-awaited sequel to THE TIME OF
'Two tigers cannot live on one
mountain' - Chinese proverb.
There can only be one winner in a
battle. A truce, the Chinese say, merely delays the inevitable. In Korea, two
brothers fight on opposing sides in a war where black market profiteering is
rife, and patriotism and honour have lost their meanings. When they depart the
battlefield, one is a hero, the other a traitor. One brother, General Lee Kwan
Man-hop, returns to the volatile political climate of Beijing and an uncertain
future in the communist Peoples Republic of China. The other, Wing Commander
James Merchant RAF, goes home to Hong Kong to restore a family business.
Through China's turbulent years of the
1950s and '60s, Lee Kwan fights to protect his family from brutal oppression,
while in Hong Kong, James Merchant's family empire is in danger of
Strong women, the lovers of powerful
men, join in the fight for its preservation, and indeed their own, as the Noble
House of Merchant becomes a house divided. A house plagued with treachery and
haunted by tales of a long lost fortune in gold, supposedly the bequest of an
illegal, secret, triad society.
From the Korean War to the Cultural
Revolution, Two Tigers, One Mountain is the long-awaited sequel to The Time Of
The Dragons and a dramatic story of a family dynasty on a violent course to
destruction. From Hong Kong to London; from the foreign embassies of war torn
Seoul to the far-east elegance of Singapore; from the narrow lanes of Bejing
slums, to the famous banking houses of Geneva, Two Tigers, One Mountain, like
an opiate dream, is a fabulous tale of the Orient.
