Inhaltsangabe: When engineer and army vet Paul Crane agrees to accompany his police officer friend on a night cruise, he never expected a deadly shoot-out would lead to his being recruited in a CIA sting operation involving China and the heroin trade. There is high-voltage suspense from start to finish in this novel by Jerry Pournelle, author of many Co-Dominium novels and co-author with Larry Niven of THE MOTE IN GOD'S EYE, LUCIFER'S HAMMER, FOOTFALL and more. Robert A. Heinlein called it "A hell of a good yarn ... the most realistic counter-espionage story I've read in a long, long time." Includes a new Afterword by the author.
