Shanghai - 1940s - World War II - a great port and international city occupied by the Japanese Army - a fabled mecca steeped in its vast complex history and overflowing with colorful exiles and conspirators and native Chinese and foreign patriotsMoreShanghai - 1940s - World War II - a great port and international city occupied by the Japanese Army - a fabled mecca steeped in its vast complex history and overflowing with colorful exiles and conspirators and native Chinese and foreign patriots and traitors.

An exciting metropolis teeming with lethal intrigue and overrun by danger- where double-dealing and treachery was the given and taken for granted... yet where a small group of brave and courageous men and women still dared to put their lives and fortunes at risk for the cause of freedom and liberty by defying their Japanese oppressors. This was wartime Shanghai, a city with little conscience where only a handful of men and women actually knew of the espionage ring operating in their midst since the war first began.

One who knew was the very man responsible for organizing the Shanghai Ring - its cunning leader, Maximov Dallin, a shrewd hard-fisted White Russian exile and daring smuggler and masterful black marketeer, as adept at bartering food and luxury goods for gold, as he was trading the gold for valuable information vital to the Allied cause while managing to survive the daily perils of wartime Shanghai.

Another was Dominique Torg, the spirited and beautiful blonde-haired daughter of a rich Norwegian shipping tycoon who discovered the bitter truth after her father had been executed by the Japanese Secret Police. Someone else who knew was Dominiques old flame, Robert Salat, Shanghais stylish and incredibly handsome all powerful gangster boss. A legendary gunman and gambler who willingly ignored the odds and sacrificed everything to save the woman he still loved. And, finally, there was Colonel Hata, Dallins notorious blackmarket partner and arch-foe.

The tradition bound Japanese aristocrat and ruthless chief of the Kempetai (the Japanese Secret Police) who never suspecting how close he was to the Shanghai Rings mastermind, In his fanatical and zealous determination to fulfill his duty to his Emperor waged a merciless investigation to uncover the Shanghai Ring until the final moment... when he was confronted by the undeniable dark reality of Japans surrender and being condemned as a war criminal, Hata decided to make a fatal run for it - to escape by ship to South America with a cargo of precious rare Chinese antiquities aboard worth millions.

This was the great port city of wartime Shanghai!
