Book 2 of the Charles Townsend Reed Saga is nearly written. It’s a sweeping story that moves from the Barbary Coast of San Francisco to Japan and Hong Kong. Along the way, Charles Reed and Willis Connelly will encounter thieves and cutthroats, Robber Barons and English aristocrats, traders and diplomats. It’s an adventure that will test the courage of both men. But it’s Reed’s high stakes play that will prove all important, bold wagers and inescapable risks that lead to a singular prize – reunification with his beloved Chan.
