Some shadowy and well-financed interests want to funnel five million dollars to rebels holed up in the Phillippine mountains to fund a revolt against the new Aquino government. They need a resourceful and gutsy team to engineer the transfer of funds. And what a team it is! There's Booth Stallings, a terrorism expert, the only man the rebel leader trusts as a liaison. And there's Georgia Blue, a colorful statuesque lady bodyguard. Their point man: Otherguy Overby, so called for his skill in making sure whenever he's in trouble, that the other guy did it. And for the sake of local expertise, the most inventive con artists on the Rim: Artie Wu, the illegitimate son of the illegitimate daughter of the Boy Emperor of China, and his slick, often explosive partner Quincy Durant. None of them are very interested in the political powers struggle, but five million dollars - now, that's another story! Download and start listening now!

    " book about grifters, written in the 80s. Good, worth reading but not great. I am reading a much better grifter book now -Hot Plastic. "

    " All his books I read so far were winners - interesting characters, engaging story, and no pretense. Great suspense novels. "

    " Never read this author before, but took it on faith as he was recommended by Elmore Leonard, Robert Parker, and Donald Westlake. It was very fun, at least in the end. Great characters playing one-up con tricks on each other in SE Asia. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Xenophon Hendrix | 10/8/2011

    " I recently reread this. It's still as good as I remembered. There are lots of twists, schemes, and hidden agendas. The characterization is strong. "

    " I am so sleep deprived I should probably not try to write a review, but -- I liked this a lot, it was very funny, and Georgia was quite awesome. I think the Wu & Durant books are my favourites by Thomas. "

    " It would be hard to pick a "Best" with Ross Thomas. It would be harder yet for me to pick a favorite, but if you said "Pick One. I can only read one." This would be the one I'd pick. "
