BOOK REVIEW

THE NINE DRAGONS by Justin Scott
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 15, 1991

"Scott is a pedestrian stylist at best, butwhile some of the early going seems padded and slowthere's no letup in tension once the story gets rolling, with enough twists and surprises in the closing pages to satisfy all who persevere."
More solid storytelling from Scott (Rampage, 1986, etc.), now with an exciting, albeit uneven, novel detailing a young woman's desperate efforts to salvage her family's storied trading firmall amidst the turmoil and violence surrounding the surrender of British Hong Kong to the People's Republic of China in 1997. ``The Turnover'' is an event with enormous implications not only for China but for the entire international business community, and Scott does a good job of filling in American readers unfamiliar with the situation as he recounts how Victoria Mackintosh, returned to Hong Kong after the failure of the New York hotel in which she had persuaded her father to invest, is thrust into the role of taipan of Mackintosh Farquhar at a crucial point in the company'sand the city'shistory.
