It's the 1960s and the world of advertising is coming alive - and it's an exciting world to be part of. Simon Wong, a Chinese-Australian and a promising young advertising executive, is sent to Singapore to establish an office. He finds himself thrust into an environment that is at once strangely familiar and profoundly different, one where the rules that govern behaviour - both in business and in personal life - differ wildly from what he is used to. And where all is not what it appears to be.

Under the veneer of the commercial world lie some shocking truths - of people smuggling, drug trafficking, and murder. And Mercy B. Lord, the woman Simon falls for, is caught up in it. From wartime Asian comfort houses to CIA spy rings, Bryce Courtenay takes us on a thrilling journey with a great love story at its heart.

    " This book was so very different from other offering from Bryce Courtenay, but I think that's what made it so wonderful. It touched on the author's own background in advertising, and was not afraid to delve into difficult and controversial issues. "

    " Now, before I leave my comment, let me just say that I am a HUGE Bryce Courtenay fan and I have read all his book, bar two. I did not like this story very much at all. Reading the blurb on the back and the blurb on the inside jacket cover, I was expecting a lot more action earlier on the book, rather than it all just coming to a head with the last couple of chapters. "

    " A disappointing read from one of my favourite authors. Too much repetition. "

    " I was a bit disappointed in it really. It offered lots of promise but went flat and never recovered. It explains in detail the history of the opium trade and the impact of the Vietnam War, which I am sure many Bryce Courtney readers would relish, but it was much too much detail for me. I got bored.
