A Devil in Hong Kong by David Harris Lang
If you could live anywhere else besides your current location, where would it be?
So many places, hard to say! Moving around internationally my whole life, wherever I am, I feel at home. The ideal place to live for me would have unspoiled nature adjacent to a city with fabulous architecture, fascinating history, and a complex and unique culture. Oh yeah, important, it needs to be on an ocean. Also, no pollution please.
Are you currently working on a project, and if so, can you tell us anything about it?
The book that I am working on now begins with a body found in the Museum of Medical Sciences in Hong Kong. The man is a Westerner, Clovis O’Sullivan. He is an Irish Traveler and a prominent bareknuckle fighter in Hong Kong for a fight. He is also in a Celtic headbanger band called Blue Dye. As the story progresses we learn that the Clovis and his band are trying to recover the lost Celtic Ring of Camulus which had turned up on the finger of a three thousand-year old Celtic mummy found in Western China. Clovis will travel the Silk Road into the Tamir Basin of Western China. His journey will also take him to the spooky backside of Mount Fuji in Japan (a popular place for Japanese to go to commit suicide), in search of the ring: before turning up dead, of course. A villain emerges, a Japanese woman named Murasaki. Her diabolical plan for mass murder in Hong Kong is connected to Clovis and the Ring of Camulus.
If you weren’t an author, what other profession would you be in?
I am an architect as well as an author. I had always wanted to be a veterinarian growing up, but then decided that I did not want to see hurt animals every day of my life. Besides, I sucked at science.
