The mean streets of asia crime novels
Asia may be a place, but it’s also a state of mind.
A bubbling cauldron of criminals, spies, hit men, gunrunners, money launderers, terrorists, hustlers, gangsters, gamblers, and con men. In the jagged netherworld of modern-day Asia, big-time criminals tango with small-time hustlers, villains on the lam mingle with politicians on the take, and the merely raffish jostle with the downright scary in the big leagues of weird.
Inspector Samuel Tay is a Singapore homicide detective. Tay is a little overweight, a little lonely, a little cranky, and he smokes way too much. Sometimes he honestly can’t even remember why he became a policeman in the first place.
Jack Shepherd is an American living in Hong Kong, the kind of lawyer people call a troubleshooter. At least that’s what they call him when they’re being polite. Shepherd is the guy people go to when they have a problem too ugly to tell anyone else about. He locates the trouble, and then he shoots it. Neat, huh? If his life were only that simple.
John August is… well, no one really knows for sure who John August is. He may work for the CIA. Then again, he may work for somebody a lot scarier than the CIA. Whoever August works for, he solves problems the old fashioned way. He kills them.
Prowl the mean streets of Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, and most of the places in between with Tay and Shepherd and August and meet the shifting kaleidoscope of Americans, Brits, Aussies, and Europeans who wash up on the great dirty beach of Asia.
Just, for God’s sake, be careful out there.
