Wild colonial boy


This autobiographical novel narrates the journey of Dan Docherty, a young Glasgow law graduate and karate black belt, who left his traditional Catholic family in 1975 to serve in the notoriously corrupt Royal Hong Kong Police. In Hong Kong, he learned Chinese language intensively, then drill, musketry and law. A famous Tai Chi master accepted him as a disciple and trained him to become an international full contact champion. In this book we’ll have a few beers with colourful characters like Big Don and Mountie Dave. We’ll visit exotic locales – Manila, Macao, Singapore. We’ll witness Dan in full contact competition and in street fight action. As they say in the Hong Kong Police, ‘If you can’t take a joke, you shouldn’t have joined’.
