The China Paradox is a timely, relevant, and must-read thriller by Gerard Shirar. The story starts in Kuala Lumpur International Airport, with Walter J. Lummis, a freelance reporter covering Asian news for most of his life, witnessing the assassination of Kim Jong-Nam, the half-brother of the present dictator of North Korea. They were supposed to meet to talk about a clandestine plot in which North Korea plays a part. Masterminded by China, the two countries want to change the world order by ending the economic and political dominance of the US. Hunted by the MSS, the Ministry of State Security of North Korea, the news reporter is risking his life in trying to expose this story by having it published in a major newspaper. Time is running out and the MSS assassins are closing in.
