Alan Pritchard has been a loser all his life. The opportunity to kidnap Rod Kiley, Southeast Asia's chief CIA operative, provides his last opportunity to be some sort of success. Filled with venomous hatred for Kiley (code name: Pangolin), Pritchard goes to work on his plan. PANGOLIN is great suspense fiction. It also provides an inside look at the seamy side of life in Hong Kong and other parts of Southeast Asia. The reader feels the sticky heat of August in Kowloon and the awful crowding of the Hong Kong backstreets, riddled with drug traffic and prostitution. This panorama of packed humanity provides an excellent backdrop against which Pritchard and his men play out their desperate game.
