Overview

Noah Potter has come to Hong Kong to find his missing sister, Lianne, who disappeared after leaving him a voice mail pleading for his help. Unfortunately the Hong Kong police are unwilling to help him, so Noah has to find her himself.

Noah's search for his sister brings him across Wei Tseng, leader of the Dragons, a group of dedicated men and women willing to do whatever it takes to keep their district safe from the violence and triads that plague the rest of the city's underworld. Wei is a man of violence but also one of incredible compassion, and his history is one that resonates with Noah, igniting a passion neither man expects.

Together they search for Lianne, a search that will lead right into a conflict with the Dragons' greatest rivals in the city.

A Matter of Duty (Hong Kong Nights #1) by J.C. Long Noah Potter receives a stress call from his sister, Lianne Maureen Potter. She had gone to Hong-Kong in search of an adventure. Upon his arrival, Noah gets little help from the police. But while at the police station, Noah meets Wei Tseng, leader of the Dragons gang. Their attraction is strong, fast, and mutual. Disappointed with the police's response -- or lack thereof -- Noah seeks comfort and help from the Dragons. It turns out that the Dragons, led by Wei, have eliminated the Nine Stars gang and have ruled the Hong-Kong's Eastern District for five years. A series of girls have disappeared and have died of tainted drug overdoses. Later it's revealed that they were made sex slaves as part of the process. And, just like with Lianne, they are associated with the popular Club K. Wei clearly realizes that Lianne is another of the victims and takes Noah under his wing. But their sexual attraction gets a better part of them as they move to solve the crimes that are affecting the Eastern District. The book is narrated from the third person point of view of the protagonists. The character development needs some work. I didn't identify with the main characters as much as I would have liked to. They seemed to be cliches rather than real people. The sex scenes are good, and most of the writing is as well. The story itself was not believable but the book makes for a quick, easy, and interesting read.
