Omtale: Chasing the Dragon
Until it was pulled down, the Walled City was Hong Kong's most foreboding territory. It was a lawless place, dominated by the Triads, and which the police hesitated to enter. Strangers were unwelcome. Drug smuggling and heroin addiction flourished, as did prostitution and pornography, extortion and fear. When Jackie Pullinger set sail from England in 1966 she had no idea that God was calling her to the Walled City. Yet, as she spoke her message of love and hope, brutal Triad gangsters were converted, prostitutes quit, and Jackie discovered a miraculous new treatment for drug addiction...This classic true story has been a bestseller for almost thirty years, inspiring and thrilling generation after generation. Now it has been re-released as a graphic novel, in cutting edge Manga style - perfect for capturing the dark, claustrophobic atmosphere of the Walled City, the grittiness of the Triad world and the high adventure and emotional rollercoaster that took Jackie from innocent young stranger to one of Hong Kong's most celebrated and respected citizens.
