About this product
- DescriptionThe Hippocratic Denial is the continuing story of two young recruits who join the Hong Kong Police force during the Cultural Revolution that Chairman Mao Tse Tung attempted to inflict on the colony of Hong Kong during the years of 1967 and 1968. This took place following the success of his so-called 'Red Guards', a mix of students and peasants who were responsible for the purging and arrest of thousands of doctors, lawyers, professional businessmen, and the Bourgeoisie on the mainland of China and the Portuguese colony of Macau. Immediately after completing their training, the young recruits found themselves confronting Chinese Communist union workers and a number of Communist-leaning businessmen. The businessmen funded and organized the demonstrations and riots on the streets while the general population remained loyal and supportive of the British authorities. After a year of riots, while the police were slowly clearing the streets of the Chicoms, the two young Inspectors found themselves having to solve a particularly disturbing murder. A visiting European businesswoman had been brutally murdered and there had also been an attempted assassination of a United States government official. While these events were an important part of their daily duties, they also had to fight the Chinese Triad Societies who were involved in the drug trade, prostitution, corruption, and other criminal activities.
