First published in 1972 and now available in eBook for the first time, a dramatic saga from the bestselling author of THE RAPE OF THE FAIR COUNTRY

Orphaned by a tidal wave which claims her parents and her home,
Ming Pei Sha is at the mercy of a world of human squalor and degradation.
Destitute, she sells her body in a loveless match with an old businessman
desperate for a son.

Pei Sha witnesses first-hand the savage contrasts of the teeming city of
Hong Kong, where the affluence and extravagance of the financiers' palaces
cannot hide the appalling poverty of the slums. A city where and ancient and
proud civilisation struggles against the corruption and greed of the modern age.
