The description of the plot is too long and uneventable, but it keeps you reading faster right till the end I can t say i was astonished, but it s a good book to pass the evening and a very realistic one Police can t be trusted people can t be trusted Diamonds are for ever and people will never probably stop dying, murdering and betraying for them and for money, killing their souls and the sense of further life It s a pity the main hero escaped and it was not shown right till the end how miserab [...]

I found my copy, quite appropriately in a back alley Rangoon bookshop Hilarious that the cover depicts a platinum blonde when of course Miss Quon is a Vietnamese bar dancer.As far as hard boiled pulp fiction goes, James Hadley Chase is a top notch writer who deserves greater recognition This novel is a fully engaging thriller, in which one bad move leads to another, with increasingly horrific results Surprisingly for this genre and this era, not only does the author not stoop to goofy Asian ster [...]

The beginning of this book was very boring but it picked up towards the end.Jaffe finds 2million worth of diamonds in his house and wants to keep it but his houseboy Hann wants him to report to the police In a tussle, Jaffe accidentaly kills Hann.He turns to his mistress Nhan for help Nhan goes to Blackie the owner of the club where she works.Blackie will organize a fake passport and a way to leave the country.
An engrossing page turner Story based in Vietnam unlike many of Chase s works which are based in US, UK or Europe Surprised to find a funny disclaimer at the beginning.Greed certainly isn t good and leads to death and destruction all around but not to the protagonist A sad ended tale nevertheless.
another brilliant book from James Hadley Chase this one in Vietnam where American expat Steve Jaffe has found some diamonds in his house and plans a getaway with his Vietnamese mistress Rollicking fast thriller typical of James Hadley Chase.
