Synopsis

Cambodia, 1996, the long-running Khmer Rouge insurgency is fragmenting, competing factions of the government scrambling to gain the upper hand. Missing in the chaos is businessmen Charles Avery. Hired to find him is Vietnamese Australian ex-cop Max Quinlan. But Avery has made dangerous enemies and Quinlan is not the only one looking. Teaming up with Heng Sarin, a local journalist, Quinlan's search takes him from the freewheeling capital Phnom Penh to the battle scarred western borderlands. As the political temperature soars, he is slowly drawn into a mystery that plunges him into the heart of Cambodia's bloody past. 'Ghost Money is a terrific crime thriller that builds quickly and holds its nerve right to the final pages. An important addition to the growing canon of outward looking Australian crime fiction.' David Whish Wilson, author, Line of Sight
