"One of the best adventure writers today. A master storyteller."
- Clive Cussler
The secrecy of a mysterious aerospace laboratory in Hong Kong . . . A daring break from a heavily guarded Chinese prison camp . . . A fierce drama played out on the storm-tossed Pacific Ocean - and in the depths below - where the fate of the world is in the hands of a brave young American couple . . .
When Elizabeth Grayson, the half-Chinese daughter of a U.S. senator, discovers she has unwittingly contributed to a terrible new weapons system while doing medical research in China, she's thrown into a notorious forced labor camp to keep her quiet. Enter Matt Connor, a disgraced ex-submarine officer operating a tramp ocean-salvage ship out of Taiwan, who is hired by her wealthy father to get her out. At the heart of this electrifying novel are a strong-willed pacifist and her reluctant rescuer, two people from vastly different worlds who become bound together in a desperate game of survival, pitted against deadly forces that must be stopped at any cost - even their own lives.
China Star (Simp. Chinese: 中华之星, a.k.a. DJJ2) is an indigenously designed experimental high speed train manufactured in China. It is a EMU train developed from the DJJ1 "Blue Arrow" high speed train by Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Works...
Would have been 5 stars but the ending got slightly hokey. 45
