A Chinese transplant surgeon is running a widespread people smuggling operation throughout South East Asia, mainly for the purpose of supplying body parts to his ultra rich clients. The operation falters when the surgeon uses a hydrofoil belonging to Kate Savage in which to ship refugees from Vietnam to China.When Kate investigates anomalies in her recently acquired ferry company, a close colleague is murdered and she narrowly escapes being one of the surgeons donors.Kate's eventual rescue from the island of Hainan is brought about by a middle aged civil engineer and three elderly ex Ghurkha soldiers. These four rugged individuals, eventually cause the downfall of the surgeons corrupt regime.
I really enjord this book and was gripped by the second chapter and found it difficult to put the book down. It is well written and it gave me more of an insight into S.E. Asia and I fell in love with the three unlikely heroes (Ghurkas) and the civil engineer. The plot was insightful and also very worrying that this goes on in this day and age.
I would recommend this book to others who would enjoy a good book.
I picked this book by chance, interested in the topic and the travel experience of the writer. The plot is fast moving and realistic, the text paints locations in the Far East and U.K with colour and detail and the different threads of the story come together in a clever conclusion. I enjoyed it
A clever and absorbing story of evil practice in the Far East which requires the intervention of great resourceful characters to get it stopped.
This is a fast paced thriller which paints great pictures of the Far East and it’s people and culture.
It all comes together in a dramatic finish, a great book and well worth the read.
