The Big Mango by Jake Needham $16.50
ISBN 9789814276603

The Big Mango by Jake Needham

What happened to the Bank of Vietnam's $400 Million?

From the Big apple, to the Big Orange, to the Big Mango. It had a kind of nutty logic to it, he figured. Bangkok was about as far as he could get from California without falling off the edge of the world. Although at times, he thought that was exactly what he had done.

Eddie Dare was a middle-aged San Francisco lawyer with a sinking feeling that the best part of his life was behind him. But back in 1975, when Saigon slid down the toilet, he'd been a young marine guarding a warehouse behind the U.S. Embassy.

As it happened, that was where Captain Harry Austin had temporarily stashed $400 million, slipped out of the Bank of Vietnam in a shadowy, CIA-run operation. The money vanished after the American evacuation; and so did Harry Austin - at least until his body turned up 20 years later in a muddy street outside a Bangkok massage parlor. When a man calling himself 'the General' dangled a million dollars at Eddie to find out what really happened to Austin - and to all that money - the adventure was too alluring to pass up.

Sucked into the jagged netherworld of Bangkok, the promise of a benign ramble through lavish hotels and low-life bars quickly turned sour. Eddie was soon hurtling breathlessly through a corkscrewed realm where big-time crooks tangoed with small-time hustlers, and the downright scary jostled with the merely raffish for center stage in the big leagues of crime.

Eddie was running for his life; and there was only one way out. He had to find out what really happened to Harry Austin - and where ten tons of money went.

"As good as it gets." The Bangkok Post

"A great read." Stephen Leather, bestselling author of Private Dancer
