Beneath the sophistication of a modern financial and commercial center, there is another world of Hong Kong. A world in which a hypnotist induces clairvoyance in his subjects and exorcises malevolent ghosts. A world in which a psychic knoen as the "Iron Abacus" predicts the future by means of his abacus. A world in which an astrologer correctly predicts the exact movements of the price of gold. A world in which the accidental fall of a few cards from a deck of cards portends significant changes in a person's fate. A world in which a dead child speaks in dreams to living parents and requests a ghost marriage with another dead child; and, in the dream, accurately gives the address of his ghost fiancee's living parents.
This is the occult world of Hong Kong. A world made up of skills and practices of clairvoyants and psychics of many different cultures and employing many diverse techniques. But all are involved in the world of the occult.
From casting a curse on an enemy to finding the heart of China's secret tradition, the occult world of Hong Kong is explored by Frena Bloomfield with skill and intelligence.
