I was skeptical at first, but the story drew me in.  Actually, it's 2 stories - one historically correct, and the other is speculation, though artfully crafted.  Even if you don't care about HK or Chinese-related history, you still may enjoy this fast-pace book.

Very interesting premise: the idea that HK could have stayed a Brit. Colony if just one or two small things had differed in the lead-up to the hand-over.  The well-crafted way that Albertsen makes his case, it's entirely plausible.  The book is actually in two parts.  The first is the author's telling (non-fictional) of how events unfolded leading up to the HK hand-over.  The second half of the book is fictional, yet still highly plausible and thought-provoking, detailing one compelling scenario of how things might have transpired if the British had put up some resistance to a Chinese take-over. Recommended reading for anyone who gives a hoot about Hong Kong.
