By James A. Newman
Joe Dylan has his work cut out. Tourists are being washed up dead on the southern Thai islands. Life insurance is being claimed. But who is collecting the money?
The detective untangles a web of lies and corruption weaved by a mafia crime lord, an Aquarian temptress and a kick-boxing prodigy in this action-packed thriller set in the tropical paradise of Thailand.
