Another totally outlandish tale but fantastic entertainment.
Lucifer Dye, ex-spy, just out of a Hong Kong prison and unemployed is hired to corrupt an entire city so that a rival "machine" can take over. There are some fantastic characters involved here.
All the usual Thomas trade marks, humour, subtle violence and killer writing. This tale even has a back story which most writers would be happy with as a stand alone. It explains Dye's upbringing in a Chinese brothel.
I wonder why these stories hav'nt
been made into movies?
Highly recommended as usual.
