Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977627675, Paperback)Harv Tucker, good ol? boy from Oklahoma, sells primo roosters in Manila, the world’s cockfighting capital. With his profits he buys Chinese AK-47’s, then sells them to paramilitary groups. When his body turns up behind one of Manila’s notorious sex clubs, the ensuing homicide investigation becomes international. Sam Haine, decorated ATF agent, teams up with a world-weary Filipino detective, Bogie Lorenzano. Though Sam is a fish out of water in the Philippines, and Bogie doesn’t care if Sam goes belly up, the two cops share a strong sense of justice. Many players vie for the container-load of guns, and traffic sex-slaves, buy indentured workers, sell industrial secrets, and arrange kidnappings for ransom. It’s all just business. Then Sam discovers that US intelligence may be involved with competing rebel groups and Bogie finds that his ex-lover is deeply involved in the crime syndicates, and the action heats up.
A riveting tale as contemporary as tomorrow’s breaking dawn. Bruce Cook is a major talent. -- Kent Braithwaite, The Wonderland Murders
A wild, convincing ride of a crime novel peopled with characters who stick long after the story ends. Cook needs to write another one---this cast should return. -- Kirk Russell, Deadgame
I couldn’t put it down. We eagerly look forward to more! -- Kim Reis, Armchair Interviews.com
