The Hong Kong Trilogy Bundle (PAPERBACK)
The Hong Kong Trilogy Bundle (PAPERBACK)
In 2019 millions of people took to the streets of Hong Kong to protest an unjust Government law.
This is the story of three of them:
Book 1 - Disruption
Career and wealth, or democracy?
Young Australian ex-pat Jacob Watson is on the fast track.
Two years after arriving in Hong Kong the young man is already managing a large property portfolio for one of the city’s biggest tycoons, networking with captains of industry, and living a life he could never have dreamed of back home.
But then life in Hong Kong changes.
Millions of people take to the streets to protest increasing interference from China, turning Jacob’s world upside down.
What should he do? Ignore everything happening around him to focus on his career and building his fortune? Or join the increasingly violent fight for democracy in the city he now calls home?
Book 2 - Conflict
What do you do when two million people hate your guts?
Sergeant Andy Wong, of Hong Kong’s famed Police Tactical Unit (PTU), Bravo Company is an honourable man who loves his job.
When the people of Hong Kong take to the streets to voice their displeasure against government policies, it’s Andy and his fellow colleagues who are tasked with maintaining law and order and putting an end to the riots and disruption that begin to plague the city.
But after months of constant duty, days and nights on the streets enduring verbal and physical abuse from the public, ostracised by his friends, and a deteriorating relationship with his family, the cracks begin to show.
When the lines between truth and falsehood, good and bad, become increasingly blurred, and faced with a wife who barely speaks to him, and a daughter he never sees, Andy becomes increasingly conflicted.
Who really are the bad guys?
Where should his loyalty lie?
Who is helping the rioters disappear from right under the noses of the PTU patrols?
Book 3 - Freedom
A conflicted father…
After discovering his daughter is supporting the rioters, a furious Sergeant Andy Wong of the Police Tactical Unit, begins to question his own motivation for enforcing laws hated by the public.
A daughter exposed…
Alice’s secret is out…
Her father knows she’s helping the protestors…and her friends now know her dad's a cop.
A helpless young man…
When bullets are fired on the streets of Hong Kong, Jacob Watson must sit on the sidelines, and watch while his friends and fellow protestors take on the might of the Chinese Communist Party. Thousands arrested, bullets fired, lives destroyed. When will it end?
In the action-packed final instalment of the Hong Kong Series, Jacob Watson, Sergeant Andy Wong, and his daughter Alice, are finally brought together by the one thing they all have in common.
A love for the city they call home.

Sucking in another lungful of air, he willed himself to push on.
His chest heaved, and vision starred.
He pressed the button on the side of his watch and collapsed to the floor, rolling onto his back, ignoring the pool of sweat as he gasped for breath. His eyes closed, he sucked in air as his chest heaved up and down, and his pulse hammered away in his temples. He slowly became aware of noises around him—the clank of iron plates and the rhythmic pounding of the Rage Against the Machine track playing over the gym sound system. Opening his eyes, he blinked away the sweat that ran into his eyes, stinging his eyeballs. Raising his wrist, he glanced at his wristwatch, narrowing his eyes to see the time—eight minutes, forty-five seconds. A new personal record, ten seconds faster than his previous best. One hundred burpees for time. It was a workout he dreaded, but perversely, also his favorite. Just him against the clock, no equipment needed, yet he had seen tremendous results. Rolling over to his side, Jacob Watson pushed himself up and glanced around the gym.
This early in the morning, it was still quite empty. Just Tom over in the squat rack, and the Hong Kong guy, whose name he had never bothered to ask, on the stair climber.
Jacob liked to work out early. Despite the extreme physical effort, it set him up for the day. He had found if he completed his most difficult task first thing in the morning, then nothing else in the day could affect him and slow him down. He glanced again at his watch, changing the display from stopwatch to time. Seven a.m. Time he got showered and changed.
Jacob stood, mopped up the pool of sweat with his hand towel, and with a nod at Tom, headed for the changing rooms.
Tom’s Gym was basic and small, tucked away on the fifteenth floor of an old office building on the edge of Hong Kong’s Central District. Jacob had been going there since he had moved to Hong Kong two years previously. It was cheap, but more importantly, it was no-frills, and the people who trained there were serious about fitness. Jacob’s colleagues frequented the fancier modern fitness centers in Central, but that was mainly to see and be seen.
Jacob stripped and showered, finishing with thirty seconds of cold water before stepping out and toweling himself dry.
He glanced toward the TV screen on the wall. The sound was on mute, but a ticker tape of news scrolled across the bottom of the screen. Markets were slightly down across the region, the U.S. and China becoming embroiled in a trade war. Jacob shrugged. It wasn’t really going to affect him much. Jacob worked in real estate, helping manage shopping malls and office buildings for one of Hong Kong’s biggest property investment companies. Whatever happened in the world, everyone knew Hong Kong property would always be a safe bet. Since leaving his native Australia two years ago, Jacob had only seen the market go up, his employer’s fortunes increasing beyond comprehension. The figures were staggering, the work extremely challenging, but Jacob couldn’t imagine doing anything else. He loved his job, and he loved this city. It was exciting, and he was master of his universe. He exchanged his G-Shock for his Omega Speedmaster, fastened the French cuffs of his tailored shirt with a pair of gold cufflinks, but left his tie in his bag, and slung his suit jacket over his shoulder. He would put those on once he had completely cooled down. He glanced at his watch again—on schedule. Time to grab a coffee, have a quick read of the papers, and still be the first one in the office.
