About the Author

Andy Adam read history at Oxford, began as a journalist, changed horses in his mid-twenties and paid his way through medical school by "an unholy mixture" of freelance writing, male modelling and cabaret. He joined the RAF as a medical officer, saw the world with his family and finished his medical career as a consultant pathologist in Somerset. Thomas Cochrane was his maternal grandmother’s second husband and an important figure in Andy's life; he died in 1953 when Andy was fourteen. His life as a medical missionary in Imperial China fascinated Andy even before he inherited his papers.
