Most Immoral Woman/Jaivin, Linda/Trade/0732282764/S026-F
It is 1904. At the age of forty-twoé the handsome and influential Australian George Ernest Morrisoné Peking correspondent for The Times of Londoné is considered the most eligible Western bachelor in China. But Morrison has yet to meet his match -- until one nighté where the Great Wall meets the seaé he encounters Mae Perkinsé the ravishing and?free-spirited daughter of a California millionaireé and a turbulent affair begins.
Waré meanwhileé has broken out between Russia and Japan for domination over northeast China. Morrison's colleague Lionel James has an idea that will revolutionise war correspondence. But the Russiansé the Japaneseé and even The Times's own editoré it seemsé would rather see James hung from the nearest yardarm. James believes that only Morrison can help. Just as Mae seems to be slipping away from himé James's quest propels Morrison into her magnetic orbit once more.
Inspired by a true storyé A Most Immoral Woman is a surprisingé witty and erotic tale of sexual and other obsessions set in the 'floating world' of Westerners in China and Japan at the turn of the twentieth century. At its heart stands an original and devastatingly honest womané as seen from the perspective of the extraordinary man who was drawn to love her.
