    Humphrey Hawksley is an old hand in the Far East He knows his China So we can take the environment and historical background of Red Spirit as being authenticThe problem is with the characters Dr Sally Parsons an eminent archaeologist fluctuates between helpless sobbing and fierce determination the changes seem to be dictated by the needs of the plot rather than any plausible personality Bill Cage conveniently half American half Chinese has an ability to survive violence that might daunt Reacher who never as far as I know went into action with a petrol bomb in each trouser pocket The child Paul is precocious enough to challenge credulity As for the Chinese well this is the inscrutable orient so we must take them at stereotypical face valueUnfortunately the author is not helped by his publisher One has become accustomed in other books to errors that slip past the spell checker but Red Spirit is betrayed by page after page of text that seems not to have been proof read words omitted alternative versions both included sloppy grammar Simply not ggod enough

    Not a five starThe first three uarters of book I was thinking that it would Then there were several pages of an orgy at WU's university office that did nothing for the story It all was some what sketchy put together from there to the end

    I would have rated it a little higher but I was frustrated by the number of typo errors and other errors in the Kindle version of the book uite a good storyline otherwise with several intriguing twists
