Travel writer/novelist Paul Theroux lends his unique perspective from having spent many years in Asia to a story that takes place during the transition of Hong Kong from British to Chinese rule. Dukes is a perceptive reader, as well as a fine actor, who has done considerable homework to keep his accents free of degrading stereotypes. He gives the listener sharp, multidimensional characterizations and full expression of narrative subtext. Unfortunately, his many virtues, which include a strong, sinewy voice, are slightly tarnished by disjointed cadences, which some listeners will have difficulty enduring over long stretches.
