Synopsis

Bangkok--the
Year of the Monkey. Calvino's Chinese New Year
celebration is
interrupted by a call to Lumpini Park Lake, where Thai
cops have
just fished the body of a farang cameraman. CNN
is running
dramatic footage of several Burmese soldiers on the Thai
border
executing students.

Calvino
follows the trail of the dead man to a feature film crew
where
he hits the wall of silence. On the other side of that
wall, Calvino
and Colonel Pratt discover and elite film unit of old
Asia hands
with connections to influential people in Southeast
Asia. They
find themselves matched against a set of farangs
conditioned
for urban survival and willing to go for a knock-out
punch.
