"A ROLLER-COASTER RIDE OF SEX AND VIOLENCE THAT CAREENS ALONG AT TREMENDOUS SPEED."--St. Petersburg Times
Philip Singerman’s incisive, electrifying thriller features murder, conspiracies, sex, and combat, as it moves from the Southern United States to Southeast Asia—now back in print.
It's a setup, pure and simple. Somebody did a professional job of making it look like a reckless young man raped and killed a beautiful blonde disc jockey in the office of his racing stables. And only one man can find out why.
Ex-homicide detective Roland Troy is living peacefully in the Florida backwaters when he receives a call from his old flame, Clara Roseman. Troy is her last hope to clear her son's name before he is convicted of the heinous crime.
Troy wants to see justice done, but in order to do so, he must open the doors to a culture and conspiracy he thought he'd long left behind. Many years ago, he'd been initiated into a secret martial arts society called the Prancing Tigers, and now the deadly path toward the truth will send him back into their clutches.
Forced to relive the senseless tragedies and searing betrayals that changed his life forever, thrown back on the wisdom of both his Native American friends and his CIA contacts, Troy must once again confront the powerfully dangerous man by whose grace he lives, and who may decide this time it is convenient for Troy to die. . . .
