Typhoon by Charles Cumming

A seriously mediocre suspense story about a hard-drinking, chain-smoking, young Mi-6 Agent doing secret agent stuff for God and Country in the waning days before Hong Kong is returned to China.  Joe Lennox, his heart-of-gold broken by the only woman he could ever love returns to China just before the 2008 Olympics to try to prevent a terrorist bombing organized by Uigher separatists under CIA sponsorship.  The plot is more credible than the main characters.  March 2009
