    One thought on “The Hainan Incident”

    1. International intrigue and an American [Mormon] undercover spy.Jason Yi, Chinese name Yi Jichun, is an American attorney who gets tapped for a special undercover mission for the U.S. government, due to his language fluency and professional training. He travels to China to attend a school for judges, with the job of uncovering corruption in the court system there. He uncovers more than that. On a vacation to Hainan Island he stumbles across an unusually high-tech computer set-up, behind the faça [...]

    2. I really enjoyed the history of China/ Taiwan behind the story. The suspense of the story did have me on the "edge on my seat" and I was not able to "quit listening." This is another book I would recommend listening to the audible version.Because of a few comments made I was expecting another book to follow and I was sad to see there was not.

    3. Yi Jichun (aka Jason Yi) is a young American attorney recruited to go under cover as a Chinese judge in order to discover and eliminate corrupt judges in the Chinese system. What Yi ends up discovering is much more than corrupt judges and city officials. If events set in motion are not stopped, countless American lives will be lost.What interested me most in The Hainan Incident was reading about the Chinese culture and geographical locations. There were a few suspenseful scenes that had me holdi [...]

    4. I have always enjoyed books that are based in other parts of the world. This book did a great job describing people and places in China. Although I have never been there, the descriptions were detailed enough that it was obvious the author had spent time there. I felt as if I was walking down the streets and experiencing it all for myself. The story was exciting and kept me entertained and on edge for most the book. The story is about an LDS American judge who under covers a terrorist plot while [...]

    5. Rating 3.5 (Normally I round up but that just did not feel accurate with my perception of the book to rank it four stars.)The setting of the story was interesting and different from what I have been reading. I liked reading things about China and its culture. The characters were interesting.I wish this book had started out differently, and not serially introducing the characters but, instead, letting the story unfold and the characters be introduced as they came up in the story. The story was in [...]

    6. I liked this book, it is a good mix of fiction combined with events that actually occurred in the time frame the book was written for. Not being from China, I liked the way the author incorporated Chinese culture and events into the book yet explained what they were or what they meant. It was a good read all in all, I enjoy a good mystery/suspense novel and I particularly enjoyed this one because it offered reality mixed among fiction, and it took place in a country I am unfamiliar with in both [...]

    7. Once again, the beginning was choppy for me. I didn't like the airplane crash being before you got to know the characters. I know she needed a hook, but I think starting at the beginning is MUCH better! Once all the lengthy description and buildup was done, I really enjoyed the book! I liked the subtle romance. I felt very sorry for Yi! Poor guy! For a lawyer, I would say he did a fantastic job undercover! I also really liked learning more about the Chinese culture and knowing how to pronounce s [...]

    8. **I won this book from as a First Reads giveaway** Thank you to the author for sending me a free copy of this book. Review to follow upon completion. This was a very fascinating book. I've never been to China( would love to go) but reading Ms. Coffman's book made me believe I was actually on the streets of china experiencing everything. A bit too political for me but a beautiful story and very well written.

    9. Having worked in China, I find the characterizations of the people and the country to be accurate and very believable. The action is fast-paced and compelling. The cooperation between the USA and the PRC may be idealistic at the moment but realistic in the sense that terrorism is a common enemy of both.

    10. The love Ms Coffman holds for China comes through in her descriptions. When she describes China or the people, it is just beautiful. As for the story, the info dumps were a little much for me but needed for understanding the how political system works in China.

    11. The Hainan Incident wasexcellent ! It contains just the right mix of fact, fiction, romance and suspense. I listened to the audio CD to and from work each day and found myself taking long detours just so I could keep listening! All I can say is I hope there will be a sequel.

    13. An American attorney, with his Chinese background, is asked to go undercover, with the Chinese governments approval to look into judical corruption. Terrorists, etc in this book. A little thin occasionally but good.

    14. Not being familiar with China and the culture, this was an interesting suspense novel. Much of the story takes place in China and I found the little tidbits about their history and customs very informative and didn't detract too much from the plot. I really liked the book!

    15. I really enjoyed this book. I loved reading about the Chinese culture. It made me want to travel there even more! The story was captivating. I didn't want to stop reading it!

    16. This is one exciting book! This is her first novel, but not her first writing experience. Having lived in China, she has a unique understandingof the culture.

    17. A little different than most of your LDS books. A bit of a spy/suspense novel concerning a terrorist group in China.

    18. A good undercover agent story, but the background was hard to follow and as it was set in China, a lot of the place and people names tripped me up.

    19. This book was hard to put down!! It was a little hard to follow at times because of the Chinese back ground and names.
