Book Description

In 1849, when Macau’s governor is murdered, Vicente Mesquita, a lieutenant in Macau’s small battalion is ordered to attack a Chinese fort, an action considered to be a suicide mission. Mesquita is trapped in conflict between two fading empires, China and Portugal. With a foot in each culture, he is torn between which masters to follow. Lobo’s novel is based on this tragic historical character, and has all the richness and intrigue of his first book, award-winning The Witch Hunter s Amulet.
