Adventure and Intrigue in early
20th Century China
James Brian King
Tony Tornado here, presenting this snazzy four-part tale
about an American adventurer set about a hundred years ago. William
Kirsch has got a job working for the Chinese government as a kind of
trouble-shooter -- with a capital T and a capital S. Ah, the Orient. I
remember it well. Paling around with my war buddies. Getting into games
of Russian Roulette with the friendly locals. Hanging out with
Christopher Walken. Yeah, those were the days. Or, hmmm, am I just remembering The
Deer Hunter? Ahem, well, never mind.
Anyways... Tough guy Kirsch is handy with his trusty six-guns...and
that can make all the difference when he and his aide Ping are up
against lethal Mongol bandits, corrupt European overseers, and a lot of
bad blood between a lot of people. But will it be enough when the
trouble strikes a little too close to home?
And just so's ya know, this story previously saw life at Lisner's Adventure Fiction On-Line...
