Whisper the Guns Summary

When Merritt Fury, a fiercely independent American entrepreneur, returns to Hong Kong on business, little does he know that he has become enmeshed in a conspiracy to confiscate his investment and render the Crown colony a dependency on the Mainland dictatorship to the north. While he suspects foul play by some of his business partners in Bluelist TungstenTrading, he also learns that he is the object of scrutiny by an underground group combating the conspiracy. He meets Amber Lee, a Eurasian beauty and government economist - and also a pistol-packing spy. As Fury fights for his life and pieces together the paradoxical conflict, he grasps that he is the linchpin of the schemes of conspirators and plotters alike, and that it is precisely his independence that is the key factor in their plans.

This novel, the first of the Merritt Fury series, was completed in 1977, but only first published in 1992. It is up on Kindle and Nook as an ebook with the other two titles in the series, We Three Kings and Run From Judgment. What I forecast in 1977 about the fate of Hong Kong has come about. Mainland China is now governed by a fascist regime that has retained the trappings of Communism and is Communist in name only. It is certainly not "capitalist" as pundits like to claim.

    We Three Kings is about how a single man, moved by the moral principle that one's life and property are one's own, can foil the faceless enablers and defeat a vicious conspiracy to deny him his property and his life. At issue is the possession of a rare gold coin, a British £5 Queen Una, given to Fury by a man whose life he saved.

    Merritt Fury is the unconquerable American entrepreneur who, in Whisper the Guns, foiled a Red Chinese conspiracy in Hong Kong and in We Three Kings gave a Saudi sheik his just desserts. Now, in Run from Judgment, he finds himself the target of a mysterious assassin who is eliminating, one by one, the financial enablers of the world's terrorists. He is also the object of another entrepreneur's malice and finally the subject of a captivating portrait painter.
