In The Last Six Million Seconds, popular thriller author John Burdett creates a hard-hitting tale, bursting with true-to-life urgency and breath-taking suspense. He plunges listeners into Hong Kong where residents uneasily count the hours as they relentlessly speed toward the date when China again rules. After a tourist spots a suspicious package floating in the South China Sea, Chief Inspector Chan Siu-kai, known as Charlie to his friends, commands a police launch to retrieve it. His grisly find-three human heads-shocks even the most callous officials of Hong Kong's Royal police force. As the seconds click away, he feverishly works to solve the case before the Communists take over. But friends and foes are trying anything to stop his investigation. John Burdett dramatically brings to life Hong Kong's teeming streets where humanity and traffic jostle for space, and its turbulent waters where boat people brashly defy national boundaries. With his rich voice and flair for the dramatic, narrator Simon Prebble expertly defines each character.
