About This Book:

Superbly produced by Real Reads Ltd from the United Kingdom, The Water Margin is one of the four "great classics" of Chinese literature. The other three are Dream of the Red Chamber, Journey to the West, and The Three Kingdoms.

Although Song Jiang is only a lowly government official, he is loyal to the emperor and kind to all the citizens in his care. But Song is in trouble. A series of unfortunate incidents have led to him being arrested, and his political enemies are keen to see him sentenced to death.

Will Song agree to become an outlaw? Will he be able to tread the narrow path between right and wrong? Will justice eventually prevail over corruption and the misuse of power?
