When he returns to Thailand after 20 years he finds that the nostalgic portrait he carried of Thailand Past bears little resemblance to reality, and he begins to uncover deception, danger and death.Scenes in the novel range from Manhattan’s Greenwich Village to a typhoon-ravaged Hong Kong to Thailand’s notorious nightlife and warlord betrayals inside the Golden Triangle. A gripping mystery and exotic thriller, it is also the story of a man coming to terms with reality and with himself.
