Night Heron Lib/E
A lone man, Peanut, escapes a labor camp in the dead of night, fleeing across the winter desert of northwest China.
Two decades earlier, he was a spy for the British; now Peanut must disappear on Beijing's surveillance-blanketed streets. Desperate and ruthless, he reaches out to his one-time MI6 paymasters via crusading journalist Philip Mangan, offering military secrets in return for extraction.
But the secrets prove more valuable than Peanut or Mangan could ever have known-and not only to the British.
