SYNOPSIS: “I’ve been a long time out east, son. I’m a highly experienced Gwailo… Gwailo? What’s that when it’s at home? Cantonese term for the white man. It’s also a fat insult. Literally it means we’re devil-men. When Sam Fielding comes to Hong Kong to look for a missing child, he stumbles on an even bigger-scale devilry than the criminal habits of his father. He becomes entangled in the murky affairs of C P Cotton, a Yank gwailo with a foul mouth, a hatred of women and a hot-line to the Pope and Billy Graham – for Cotton just happens to control the world’s most profitable chain of Christian TV stations…” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DISPATCH
