AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Gallery owner Alice Ackerman hires Plant to find her husband, missing in Asia. Plant gets embroiled with the expatriate language teacher Bowles with a penchant for cut-price Bangkok bar-girls, excitable Indian professor Ghosh, a Manila bookseller with impeccable CIA connections, and exotic cabaret singer Anna-Imelda. Drugged and seduced at the Eternal Night Club, kidnapped and imprisoned in Baguio City, PLant is deported from the Philippines. Fired from the case, he is visited in his rural hideaway by the menacing international publisher Starr, whose taste for dangerous sex may be the reason he is later found hanged in a Bangkok hotel. The action moves rapidly through Thailand, India, the Philippines and the Australian Gold Coast.' (Publisher's blurb)
