John J. Pullinger
Death, Debauchery 'n Deception
When the Australian based Down Under Corporation decides to expand its operation in Asia to Shanghai, it sends their ace trouble shooter Steve Conway to seek out a site. On arrival in Shanghai Conway meets the beautiful Selina Chan, who unknown to Conway, is the right hand of Jao Min who controls the Shanghai underworld.
Jao is being challenged for supremacy by another gangster, Du Jing Ling, who is determined to take over, whatever the cost in human life…one of those lives being that of Steve Conway who finds himself caught in the middle of a savage gang war when Du believes he is aligned with Jao.
Adding to his woes are several attempts on his life – one of which, is from a business colleague of Selina and a deadly seduction from the sexy Wendy Han.
Wild exotic women, Batman character impersonators, murderous locals and a host of other intriguing characters make up this tale ranging across Vietnam, The Philippines, Australia and China culminating in Conway facing his greatest danger yet.
