Lightning on the Sun
Asher is in trouble. He's stuck out in Phnom Penh - the work's dried up and he's at the end of his spiritual and financial tether. But top-grade heroin is dirt-cheap in this lawless part of the world . . .
With funds borrowed from the loan-sharking, massage-parlour owner Mr Hawk, Asher has carefully worked-out plans to move some weight to New York. Plans that begin - swiftly and dangerously - to unravel.
Burning with the tension, moral resonance and exotic setting of a Graham Greene classic, Lightning on the Sun is a staggeringly brilliant debut.
