    The Dragon’s Threat is an absorbing mystery novel that follows Peter Holroyd, a professor of Maritime History who specializes in Ming and Qing Dynasty voyages. An international dispute erupts over Dejection Island, a small piece of land in the South China Sea. Britain owns the land, but Chinese ships arrive with the intention of taking the island and the Americans refuse to let them have it. Peter gets invited to investigate and establish who owns Dejection Island. He finds himself in a difficult situation when he realizes that digging into the island’s history is not as easy as he thought and he soon becomes a target. Peter is forced to choose between his own life and those of the Dejection Island’s residents. Peter king has written an intellectually invigorating mystery novel that is a must read for anyone looking for a captivating mystery that is steeped in history. The author blends history, mystery and action in a unique way that feels authentic and fascinating. This was a book that was hard for me put down because I was always wondering what Peter was going to find next. Peter’s character is well developed and he is fun to follow. He is an intelligent but lonely person and the author is able to convey his emotions so well that I found myself easily empathizing with him. I felt his loneliness and that was because of the sharp writing and the surprising focus on the emotional aspects of the story. I enjoyed the mix of political and historical aspects in the story. This novel feels like a blend of Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne novels and Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon’s series. With vivid details throughout the story readers will be immersed in this intriguing world and feel like they are right alongside Peter as he travels. The story progresses at a steady pace, but once we get past Peter landing in China the tension and drama really pick up. The Dragon’s Threat is one book that I highly recommend to readers who are looking for an entertaining read that is filled with mystery, action and history.

    Thanks for your feedback!
