Working Tokyo nightclubs is easy money for beautiful and troubled American Val Benson – until a client with a rather unusual hobby – painting the private parts of his female liaisons – reluctantly gives up a map to a stash of Japanese war loot and tempts his favorite girl into a dangerous treasure hunt.
The Congressman’s daughter is not the only one interested in the map: Yakuza, bent cops, human traffickers, rogue CIA agents and her father are hot on her trail, snapping at her high heels.
So begins the dark, epic journey of a new anti-hero of Asian Noir, a protagonist both ambiguous and courageous, and utterly unreliable. From comfort women and tomb-raiding in Japanese-occupied Burma to the murderous echoes of the Vietnam War, long forgotten crimes come roaring back to life, as Val leaves a trail of destruction and chaos in her wake.
Together with her best friend, the equally unreliable nightclub hostess Suki, Val travels through Tokyo, Hong Kong and Bangkok to the Thai-Burmese borderlands for a dramatic showdown with her pursuers. Finding the treasure before everyone else does is her only hope for survival, and perhaps redemption. 




My 5 Star review

It seemed that mayhem followed Valerie Benson all over Asia.  From the moment, you met this strong willed and feisty woman you knew you were in for a bumpy ride. Mixed it with colorful characters like The Painter, Jeb Maxwell and Muddy McKenzie you sure have a winner. From prostitution, slavery, drugs, and war crimes mixed in the sweltering heat of corrupt government officials and you were in for a good time. Fast paced and well written the story grips your attention and held it till the very last body fell to the ground and you feel exhausted at the end. Trying to hold on for dear life and what a journey it has been. Loved the intriguing plot with its many twists and turns, the relationship of a father and daughter that could not get pass the past. The short burst of romance between a hostess and her kick boxer filled the pages as you are led through the streets of Tokyo, Bangkok and Thailand. Immersed in the culture and its people becoming alive through the pen of the author. 

A great book for anyone who loves the thrill of the chase dabbed in WWII History seeking the golden pot at he end of a muddy hill. No rainbows in this book. **smile** Intrigue, deceit, secrets, treasure, murder and sex were all in this book just as the author has promised in his synopsis. 

Thanks for a great book Jame DiBiasio.
