In this vel of pulp espionage, the author, Scott Shaw, takes the reader deep into the realms of Asia -- presenting the sights and sounds of the environment in a manner that can only be truly depicted by a writer who has lived the experiences and kws the region. This first-person, graphically explicit tale, follows a reluctant protagonist as he travels from his home in Southern California, recruited by a dubious faction of the United States government, to handle an operation that one else would touch. Expendable, was the key phrase in his recruitment. Chalked full of unexpected plot twists, this action-packed vel follows the lead character as he transverses the realms of lust, love, anger, until he finally embraces the pure emotion of self-sacrifice -- seeking only to save the female agent who was sent with him on the mission. Publishers Weekly says, Gripping... This is t your grandfather's spy vel.
