The Mystery of the Chinese Ring

Andy Adams

Book Overview: 

The Mystery of the Chinese Ring is an exotic adventure story and is set in locations such as Burma and China, with the historical and political ramifications which applied to the mid Twentieth Century and still ring true in the early 21st Century. What is the purpose of the ring? What is the significance of the letter “K”? Why the interest in a sixteen year old boy going to visit a relative in Burma? Why are family dynasties so important, and why the secrecy concerning their survival? This is an audiobook that will find eager listeners from the ages of about ten to octogenarians, male and female, and also those enjoying adventure stories with many twists and turns. The author, Andy Adams, was a well known writer of cowboy books which are thought to be the best in that genre, and his Biff Brewster books, of which he wrote three, are likewise highly regarded. As the main hero is aged sixteen, this story will find resonances in all those that are young in heart, and is an entertaining book in its own right.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .At the gate, he ruffled his brother’s hair, gave him a quick hug, and turned to Monica. He lifted her off her feet and planted a big “smack” on her plump cheek. Unashamedly, he embraced his mother in front of the crowded gate, then turned to his father.

The two shook hands, and Mr. Brewster placed a hand on Biff’s shoulder.

“You have the ring in a safe place?” he asked softly.

Biff nodded his head and touched his side trouser pocket. He had fastened the key chain to a longer, stronger chain which was attached to his belt loop.

“I wouldn’t display it, Biff.”

Biff nodded. He felt tears coming to his eyes, but he was through the gate and up the plane’s loading platform before anyone could see them. Moments later, the plane was taxiing out to the runway for the take-off. Biff, looking through the window, could see his family waving.

The Chinese Ring is a veritable passport for Biff to fly overseas to search for his missing uncle & discover secret goings-on on a grand scale. Straightforward "mystery."

Fun adventure book.

Teenage adventurer Biff Brewster heads to Burma to visit his uncle and ends up in communist China with his new Burmese friend, and a bunch of Commies on his tail.
This was probably exciting stuff for boys in the 1960’s. I enjoyed it enough to give it three stars and investigate further instalments.

An exciting old-school adventure.

Biff Brewster was another youth action character attempting to horn in on the Hardy Boys' and Tom Swift's territory. In this one Biff goes to Burma to hang with his uncle. Unfortunately the uncle has disappeared in communist China, and it is up to biff to rescue him.
