In 1972, Richard Nixon travelled to Beijing to meet with Chairman Mao after backchannel communications opened up an opportunity to speak directly with the ailing Communist Party leader. Their meeting changed the balance of power throughout the world, and with it, the course of history.
Now, the Cold War, thought to be over, may have taken a new turn as Arthur Biers, a young historian, discovers a shadow organization has tried to illegally raid the tomb of China’s first emperor. And to complicate matters, Arthur has no proof that he wasn’t part of this organization, and Beijing wants answers.
On a mission to preserve history, Arthur learns he may have forever altered its course. Now he’ll have to convince the American Ambassador to China that there’s someone still at large trying to renew old conflicts.
