Made, Laid and Betrayed in Hong Kong: The Scandalous Tales of Two Young Colonial Policemen


Add your own review!

Overview

Need cheering up? How about a nostalgic trip back to the 1970s with a different perspective? Follow the true story of two young yet disparate Brits as they venture east to Hong Kong to join the colonial police out there. Initially bought-in to the adventure, bright lights and the hedonistic pleasures of the Exotic East, Alan and Bob are thrown into a world somewhat divergent to the picture painted whilst under training. They begin to butt heads with corruption, colonial excess, privilege and protectionism and run into connivers, skivers and survivors. The story follows the two young, relatively naive men along their journey from their eight-month police training to their posts as policemen. It is filled with colourful incidents and exotic tales, with liberal doses of tongue in cheek humour and literary licence thrown in, you'll scarcely believe what they encountered.

Author Information

Victor Blair is a well-travelled, humorous, rather free spirit, adopting multiple personas in banking and overseas appointments, including ten years in the colonial Hong Kong Police, the tourism sector in Asia and subsequently worldwide oil and gas exploration and logistics. An unappreciated comedic wit and poet, with a bright, if latent, creative spark.
