Quinn lives alone, scarred by personal tragedy and recollections of a wartime massacre near a remote monastery in China, the Retreat of Radiance. After thirty years of indecision he plots revenge against the perpetrator, Keh, a former Chinese Civil War general who has made millions from heroin. Quinn takes the dangerous road back into his past through Hong Kong, China and Taiwan. Waiting for him - fearful, malicious - are the aging villains and heroes of his youth. Quinn tracks them down before his bitter return to the Retreat of Radiance, and the end of his journey in Keh's bizarre mountain amusement park. First published in 1982, The Retreat Of Radiance was four months on the bestseller list, six weeks at number one.
