Ray Sharp is separated from his wife, Sylvia, and would love to be divorced but Sylvia isnít cooperating. At least she wasnít cooperating but now she wants something from Ray. Sylvia needs him to locate her missing boy friend, Alexander Lee Truscott.

Due Diligence International employs Ray, and he is in Jakarta to conduct an investigation for a Hong Kong investment bank. The investigation involved Motex, Rayís former employer, and Lucky Break, an Australian mining company, who claims to have found gold. Since Truscott was rumored to have dealings with Lucky Break it sounds like locating him should be a snap for Ray but that is not the case.

When Ray begins his investigation he soon finds out that Lucky Break does not want to be investigated and are not gentle in making Ray aware of this fact. From rumors Ray begins to believe that Truscott may be dead at the hands of Lucky Break employees.

There is never a dull moment in Eric Stoneís novels. Prostitution seems to be the main occupation of the women in Indonesia. It is not difficult for Ray to find women to help him sift out information that would be very hard to find on his own.

The setting is exotic, the story is exciting and the descriptions of the food and the people add a lot to this very interesting tale.
