The book reflects what every one of us wants. We all have visions of being an action hero. The person who saves the day. Our writer is such a person. It is he who is playing the part, acting out every scene, every piece of action and putting himself completely in to the character. Pete Devine was doing all right as a private investigator, nice easy jobs and no danger. But now he was about to be tested to the limit. He was coming up against an Asian drug gang who were not worried about who they wasted and who had one of the detectives involved in the case on their payroll. In the days following his first involvement, he would be shot at, beaten and questioned and had his girlfriend kidnapped and used as a bargaining tool. Devines days as a private investigator were about to get very interesting.
