Book Nook: Three Gorges Dam

The newly released international thriller, Three Gorges Dam by debut fiction author Thomas V. Harris, takes readers through real-life China as Buddhist and Muslim freedom fighters expose the country’s fatal flaws.
Three Gorges Dam—a tale of personal redemption wrapped inside a political thriller—offers a birds-eye view of China on the brink of destruction as it faces the worst mass catastrophe in world history. With this edge-of-your-seat new title, readers will fly through the pages as they follow New Yorker Michael Brannigan in the People’s Republic of China.

New Yorker Michael Brannigan and the People’s Republic of China are concluding a triumphant week. The PRC’s top energy consultant has fallen in love with Australian geophysicist Kylie Ryan while traveling in Xinjiang Province. President Lao Ming is in Beijing hosting a game-changing summit with the United States. CNN is broadcasting the new reality: the Communist juggernaut has surpassed the United States as the world’s top superpower.
Brannigan’s train is retracing Marco Polo’s historic journey—when the Silk Road Express reaches the Far East’s Far West, his team of engineers will assist the Chinese in developing the world’s richest oil fields. As Brannigan heads deeper into the Taklamakan Desert, President Lao’s motorcade is approaching the end of its parade route. In a few hours, the president will arrive at the Hall of Purple Light to celebrate his victory.
All that changes in two blinks of an eye. Television cameras capture the crumbling of the Communist regime while China’s Young Turks and Fighting Monks rock the country. Caught up in the violence, Brannigan’s love affair meets a tragic end. Hostiles are raging and the Chinese miracle is self-destructing. In the midst of the turmoil, Brannigan returns to China for a hush-hush assignment at Three Gorges Dam, the world’s largest hydroelectric facility. There, he overcomes his demons and finds lasting happiness. Everything is coming up aces.
Mr. Harris divides his time between Mercer Island, a few miles east of Seattle, and on Highland Lake in Bridgton, Maine. He is a Pacific Northwest trial lawyer who currently serves as a full-time mediator at Washington Arbitration & Mediation Service (WAMS). He is a fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers, the International Society of Barristers, the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, and the American Board of Trial Advocates.
