As the clock winds down on British Hong Kong, three heads are found floating in the water of the harbor, and Chief of Police Chan Siu-kai embarks on a search for the killer and uncovers the truth about a possible British cover-up

Blackwell North Amer
In shops throughout Hong Kong, clocks are ticking down the seconds before control passes from the British back to the Chinese on June 30, 1997. In his explosive new thriller, John Burdett captures the excitement and unease felt throughout the world on the eve of the changeover.
When Royal Hong Kong Police Chief Inspector Chan Siu-Kai ("Charlie") is called to the harbor at the South China Sea, he discovers three heads floating in the water. The rest of the remains are found at the bottom of a commercial meat grinder in an abandoned warehouse.
Confronted with a case of triple homicide, Chan has to find out why the coast guard and an outside agency are opposed to his investigation. Chan, a determined policeman who is half Chinese, half Irish, goes in search of the killer and the truth behind the British government's attempts at a cover-up.

this book was merely okay. It had none of the drama and draw of Burdett's Bangkok novels. I was very disappointed. Having said that, Burdett cannot write a bad novel (in my opinion) so this was acceptable, but not terrific. I think I'll stick to the Bangkok books.
