About the Book
See how the writer in THE CHINA AFFAIR leads the reader from Chinese romantic encounters, attempted rape, defiance of Chinese courts, the smuggling of a woman OUT of China, to an illegal entry into the United States, to a Chicago Police Department “”sting”” operation, to joint Chinese-American cooperation, and, oh, yes, to what happens with the Willis Tower bomb. Along this journey from China to Chicago, there are many human interest events, funny stories, and enough twists and turns to cause the reader to wonder just what the hell is happening next.
PACIFIC BOOK REVIEW
J. T. Gooch takes the reader into the lives of two people, an American named Jack and a Chinese woman named Angela. After Angela teaches a few months, the headmaster charges her with subversive activities and causes her to be placed on trial. The Chief Investigator realizes she and Jack are two love birds from different countries. This amazing book shows there is no depths or bounds with love.
