January, 1937: Peking is a heady mix of privilege and scandal, lavish cocktail bars and opium dens, warlords and corruption, rumours and superstition - and the clock is ticking down on all of it. In the exclusive Legation Quarter, the foreign residents wait nervously for the axe to fall. Japanese troops have already occupied Manchuria and are poised to advance south. Word has it that Chiang Kai-shek and his shaky government, long since moved to Nanking, are ready to cut a deal with Tokyo and leave Peking to its fate.Seventy-five years after these events, Paul French finally gives the case the resolution it was denied at the time. Midnight in Peking is the un put downable true story of a murder that will make you hold your loved ones close, and also a sweepingly evocative account of the end of an era.
