    A classic spy yarn. They don't write 'em like this anymore. Reed

    A classic spy yarn. They don't write 'em like this anymore. Reed's best since Dark Thirty. A perilous journey over the old Silk Road through Burma into western China--and into the heart of Chinese Intelligence. There's even a love story thrown in.
