Set in Hong Kong at the beginning of the war, Dominic is the Under-Secretary for Chinese Affairs and a weekend warrior volunteer in HK, traveling in disguise to try and gather information for the government. His work is important, yet extremely dangerous. On one of his missions, he meets Gwen, a British nurse living in HK, and they become close. When the war escalates and Japanese armies take over HK, the Europeans in the area are in danger as the Triads vow to kill them. Gwen gets taken by the Japanese but with her sharp mind and the help of a friend, she is able to get to safety.
Gwen is actually based on Gwen Priestwood, the only female to escape from Japanese captivity in Hong Kong. I would love to learn more about her and her story - it sounds incredible!
The Slightest Chance is a fast-paced, edge of your seat, historical thriller. It is a no-holds-barred account of the horrors of war and I was gripped the entire time!
I am definitely going to pick up his other novel, A Chance Kill, and I can't wait to see what Paul writes next!
The Slightest Chance is getting four and a half stars from me. I would love to read more by Paul Letters in the future. He obviously has great talent on creating an intriguing story.
I received this book the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
