The Dragon Riders

A novel by

Spanning forty turbulent years from the defeat of the French to the arrival of the Americans - an extraordinary saga of passion and violence set in Saigon, the most exotic, most seductive city on earth. Typical of the time and place is the fateful marriage of Ariane and Luoc. She, the innocent french girl sent East to satisfy her adolescent restlessness. He already a killer, executioner of the man who had killed his own father. Nina, beautiful and determined, is the offspring of this heady alliance. A woman with the blood of two races running in her veins, will triumph over every obstacle to keep the man she loves and to win control of a business - am empire of opium-trading - that symbolizes the violence and dreams of a city in turmoil. "Finding a new writer of such power is tremendously exciting. Christie Dickson's Nina is a fascinating woman and her struggle for life, identity and love is much more than an ordinary love story". The Times, Philippa Toomey "A rich and very enjoyable novel, so evocative of the East. I thoroughly enjoyed it". Noel Barber
