AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Mick McCreary is an oilman out of a job. His only possessions are a plane ticket to Singapore, a month's pay in Indonesian rupiahs and the luck of the Irish.

'When the mysterious Mr Rubensohn approaches him with the offer of a breathtaking salary for a drilling operation on a remote island—no questions asked—he thinks that luck is running with him once more.

'But then he meets the beautiful Lisette, and within twenty-four hours he is involved in murder, intrigue and an international fraud of frightening proportions.'
