Noah Potter has come to Hong Kong to find his missing sister, Lianne, who disappeared after leaving him a voice mail pleading for his help. Unfortunately, the Hong Kong police are unwilling to help him, so Noah has to find her himself.
Noah's search for his sister brings him across Wei Tseng, leader of the Dragons, a group of dedicated men and women willing to do whatever it takes to keep their district safe from the violence and triads that plague the rest of the city's underworld. Wei is a man of violence but also one of incredible compassion, and his history is one that resonates with Noah, igniting a passion neither man expects.
Together, they search for Lianne, a search that will lead right into a conflict with the Dragons' greatest rivals in the city.

This is one of my favorite series, so I was excited to hear it in audio. This is a new narrator to me, and while it was not terrible, it felt like he was new to this field, but I could be wrong. He got better as the story continued. I still recommend this if you love the book, but it will take a few chapters to get use to the narrative.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
The narrator. His style is: monotone; yes, it’s as boring as my statement. Grin. However, even more distracting is the blatant lack of editorial review before this audio release. There are a multitude of places when a line is repeated twice. Someone really slacked off on splicing the segments. I did a better job with a boom box and cassette tape when I was 10 and recording music off the radio.
Would you be willing to try another book from J. C. Long? Why or why not?
Likely not because the same narrator will be used. In fact, for the first time in the 600 or so books I’ve purchased from audible, I will be calling customer service to request a refund on this one. The story itself was not terrible but, due to narration and editing, I couldn’t wait for it to be over.
Would you be willing to try another one of Kai Morgan’s performances?
Not even a little bit.
Could you see A Matter of Duty being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
No. Just no. Too formulaic.
