Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 750710351X, Paperback)

Author Lin Xi describes the chaotic and dark social reality of Tianjin at the turn of the twentieth century, a turbulent period in Chinese history.

The Magician, or King of the Wizards, is the most famous fortune-teller in Tianjin at that time. He impresses people as being a gentleman and a learned scholar, though he is actually as sly as a fox. Always able to turn defeat into victory at the last minute, he manages to persuade even those who have been fooled by him to believe he is a living immortal.

Chen San is the Master of Thieves in Tianjin. He has superb skills yet maintains a high sense of justice, abiding by the code of ethics of his profession. He experiences the highlight of his life when he succeeds in preventing a national treasure from being smuggled out of the country at a critical moment.
