Jungle White by Stephen Paul Cohen
An entertaining novel about a clandestine hunt for the source of heroin in the Golden Triangle. The action begins in the United States, continues in Bangkok's Chinatown, through the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, and up to the remote northern hilltracks of a Hmong village. Hilltribe villagers, local police officers, Bangkok taxi drivers, and Western tourists create a rich collage of modern Thailand and an authentic backdrop for this tale of intrigue.
