The China Card
by Donald Freed
ISBN: 978-0-917990-20-5

In this far-seeing novel, the nations of the near future come to 1984—and a world in crisis:

For the United States, Wolf Manheim, survivor of Buchenwald, the president's chief national security advisor, disciple of Adlai Stevenson . . .

For the Soviet Union, Georgi Arbatov, Kremlin man of letters, a lesser hawk playing a two-faced game . . .

For the People's Republic of China, Hu Ziping, a diminutive man of giant powers, waiting, waiting ever so patiently to play his own final China Card . . .

And surpassing them all—a woman of celebrity, using weapons more powerful than the world's arsenals.

Set against the backdrops of Washington, Peking, Moscow and a top secret retreat for the nation's movers and shakers, THE CHINA CARD is a riveting, prophetic novel of obsessive love and shocking international intrigue.

Cover art by Joel Barr.
