Praise
"As a thriller, TYPHOON is easy to like. The plot is tight and complex, and the local details are accurate....I think of spy fiction set in Europe...as being dark in ambiance and mood....Cumming's tone is correspondingly bright, partly thanks to the pep of urban China, partly because the characters are young and on the make."
From the Publisher
Annotation Charles Cumming continues his ascent into the upper echelon of contemporary spy novelists with this thriller which begins in Hong Kong in 1997, as the British prepare to return the region to the Chinese. A young British operative named Joe Lennox is assigned to safeguard a key defector, but eventually discovers that he has been played for a fool by his superiors and the C.I.A. Ten years later, Lennox is determined not to repeat the mistakes of the past, as the principle players in the Hong Kong saga reconvene in China during the frenzied days leading up to the Beijing Olympics.
Editors Note Typhoon, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year a Top Ten Thriller of the Year (London Times), further confirms what all the critics around the world have been saying:  Charles Cumming is a modern master of the classic espionage thriller, heir to le Carre and Deighton.In 1997, a few months before the British government is scheduled to return Hong Kong to Chinese rule, Joe Lennox, a brilliant young operative for SIS (MI6), loses both his girlfriend and his first high profile asset – a prominent defector who disappears from a safe house. The girlfriend, the ravishing Isabella Aubert, he lost to Miles Coolidge, a hard-bitten CIA agent; the asset to collusion between his bosses and the CIA. A decade later, Lennox is back in China, facing his old nemeses. With the CIA plotting to use an Islamic group to destablize China, the SIS seeking to thwart them and his old asset the key to all of this, Lennox, Coolidge, and the girlfriend they shared are hopelessly intertwined in a plot where trust is impossible and truth is unknowable.
