Mayhem and mirth in the daily running of a pool hall, the trials of a police team targeting brothels, plus adventures with triads, murderers and rioters… Tales from a Barren Rock contains more than thirty Hong Kong stories from long-time foreign residents of this enclave on the South China coast. What was it really like inside Government House during the closing decades of the British era? What stories does St John’s Cathedral hold? And what of Cathay Pacific and Cable & Wireless? The writers regale us with tales from their own lives in their home away from home, the place they loved and still love, that jewel on the China coast, Hong Kong.
