November 3, 2017. On the eve of the official commemoration of the centenary of the communist revolution, the British journalist Radko visits Vietnam. The turmoil in the country is rising. Beside the contested construction of a wastewater treatment plant next to the Thai Ha monastery, the center of the resistance against the regime in Hanoi, increases the Chinese threat on the Vietnamese islands in the Spratly archipelago in the South China Sea.

Radko meets in Thai Ha Father Phung and Le Quan, a leading dissident. They’re confronted with the intruding Secret Service and the ambitious general Dang Hung with his golden dragon ring, who wants to seize power. A clash seems inevitable.

Will the peaceful protesters, who are distributing the new Vietnamese fl ag – a white lotus on a yellow fi eld – succeed to march to Ba Dinh Square, the historical center of the country? And liberate the country a few days before the celebration of the centenary of Communism?

 "This futurological novel offers a sharp insight in the paranoid Vietnamese society, where the omnipresent secret police sustains the corrupt communist dictatorship. It’s enlightening to experience how attorney Le Quoc Quan continues his fight for freedom with peaceful means. In a letter before his retrial in 2014 he wrote: ‘The heroic people of Vietnam deserve happiness and prosperity. They know how to do and they can do it by themselves.’ These words seem to become reality in this as contemplative as compelling novel where the growing tension gives way to a surprising climax.”
