Chris Hutchison is a man on the run. Imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, Hutch escapes from a British maximum security prison and starts a new life in Hong Kong. Then a ghost from his past catches up with him, forcing him to help a former terrorist break out of a Bangkok prison. Or face life behind bars once more. Meanwhile the DEA wants to nail the vicious drug warlord responsible for flooding the States with cheap heroin. And decides to use Hutch as a pawn in a deadly game. Hutch's bid for freedom takes him into the lawless killing fields of the Golden Triangle, where the scene is set for one final act of betrayal ...
Brilliant thriller writing from a writer at the top of his game.

'Action and scalpel-sharp suspense' - Daily Telegraph on THE BIRTHDAY GIRL 'Exciting stuff with plenty of heart-palpitating action gingered up by mystery and intrigue ... Leather is an intelligent thriller writer' - Daily Mail on THE TUNNEL RATS 'This book should be compulsory reading' - Aberdeen Evening Express on THE SOLITARY MAN 'Stephen Leather should be nestling in your bookshelves alongside Frederick Forsyth and Jack Higgins' - Daily Mail 'This is as hi-tech and as world-class as the thriller genre gets.' - Express on Sunday on THE BOMBMAKER 'Excitement is guaranteed' - Independent on THE FIREMAN
