January, 1937: Peking is a heady mix of privilege and scandal, lavish cocktail bars and opium dens, warlords and corruption, rumours and superstition – and the clock is ticking down on all of it. The Midnight in Peking walking tour retraces major events and locations that feature in Paul French’s historical true crime best-seller Midnight in Peking.  Photography, filming and recording are not permitted. This small-group tour maximum 8 persons is offered at the  price of 300RMB, which includes admission to the sites and is paid at the end of our itinerary.

It belongs to Pamela Werner, the daughter of a former British consul to China, and when the details of her death become known, people find it hard to credit that any human could treat another in such a fashion.

The book tells the story of 1930s Peking and the sins and scandals that were hidden within the city walls, the murder of nineteen-year-old Pamela Werner and the investigation that ensued when her body was found.  Midnight in Peking is the unputdownable true story of a murder that will make you hold your loved one's close, and also a sweepingly evocative account of the end of an era. Midnight in Peking by Paul French is available in the U.S. in hard cover and e-book on April 24, 2012, wherever books are sold. The walk will take you to the scene of the crime, Pamela’s old haunts, the homes of the murder suspects and other key locations across Peking’s former Legation Quarter, the area once known as the “Badlands” and the old Tartar City.  On one of those walls, not far from the nefarious Badlands, is a massive watchtower – haunted, so the locals believe, by fox spirits that prey upon innocent mortals. Each day brings a cacheting up of tension for Chinese and foreigners alike inside the ancient city walls. All BIS events are off-the-record. Author and historian Paul French will be your guide on this tour.
