It is the morning of April 12, 1927 and China's Nationalist Party Leader Chiang Kaishek has decided to end his shaky alliance with the Chinese Communist Party in the most bloody and horrific fashion imaginable. Thousands perish in what historians would ultimately chronicle as The Feast of Heads. What few escape the massacre make their way to the wastelands of Jingxai Province where Mao Tse Tung's infamous Red Army is to be birthed.
Among the survivors of that fateful day is a fearsome, yet resilient and determined young man named Enlai Chiang. An eyewitness to the beheading of both his parents as well as the destruction of all else he holds dear, Enlai Chiang survives the massacre and willfully succumbs as the rigors of time and chance transform him from frightened child to fearless foot soldier and ultimately, into one of the most revered figures in Chairman Mao's regime; a pedestal from which he mentors with diabolical precision the young man who would ultimately grow to be international crime icon William Chiang, the shadowy villain ALH first introduced to readers in, The Whisper of Serpents.
