"The best spy novel Dan Sherman has ever written." -- New York Daily NewsHarry Rose, last of the great American spymasters, has stepped to the helm of the Berlin station in the wake of the Second World War. From deep within a pulverized Germany, he launches his own renegade operation to avert World War III. But there are some within his camp who claim that Harry has finally gone too far, playing the game of nations from the bottom of the deck. Here is an inside story of the nuclear arms race -- the politics, the passion and the sheer lust for power. In short, here is a tale of elite Cold Warriors who lived and died by a dictum that reads: He who deploys a thermonuclear weapon is tantamount to God.This is the novel that elevated Dan Sherman to that "exalted plateau occupied by John LeCarre and Graham Greene." This is also the novel that inspired a whole new wave of espionage thrillers that will live in spy fiction forever.Other Dan Sherman thrillers from E-Reads: The Traitor, The Man Who Loved Mata Hari, The White Mandarin

John Polly enters Shanghai in 1948 on a muggy, velvet evening, just in time for the Communist takeover of China. It marks only his fourth month in America's newly-formed Central Intelligence Agency. Over the next two decades Polly will become THE WHITE MANDARIN, a double agent buried so deep within the inner circle of the People's Republic as to shape the futures of both that nation and his own. Dan Sherman's intricate, superbly crafted spy thriller follows Polly as he walks a dangerous tightrope of intrigue and suspense. As China rebuilds itself, Polly attempts to start a family in the intersection between the American intelligence system and the Asian drug trade. Can Polly keep his wife and daughter safe? Can he keep track of the shifting stories and changing allegiances in the CIA? Will his emotion get in the way of his mission?Only pages into this stunning novel, readers will easily understand why Sherman has earned comparison to the great John le Carre and Graham Greene. It is both a story of very personal love and loss and an insightful history of China between the rise of Chairman Mao and the 1972 visit by President Nixon. Anyone looking to understand China of yesterday and today -- its power, its flaws, its beauty -- need look no further than THE WHITE MANDARIN
