I heard the audio book version, some 31 hours while driving the car (I am a busy profssional and dont have time to read). Great story, great historical backdrop and lovely characterisations. The story illustrates the Korean War friendship of Jacko, the Aussie, Negro 'Jim' in a POW camp, and then (post war), of the 'Countess', who has an extraordinary (and otherwise hidden) Russian/Chinese heritage.
