Rick and Poon probably deserve each other, but they barely get the chance to work out whether it's as a reward or a punishment. For one thing, a relationship that's half terror drinking and half desperate sex doesn't exactly have "stability" written all over it. For another, Rick's boss seems to have been involved in the kidnapping that brought the two back together

Overview

Rick and Poon probably deserve each other, but they barely get the chance to work out whether it's as a reward or a punishment. For one thing, a relationship that's half terror drinking and half desperate sex doesn't exactly have "stability" written all over it. For another, Rick's boss seems to have been involved in the kidnapping that brought the two back together as well as the coup that nearly separates them for good. And we won't even get into the simmering border dispute with Cambodia, the coup, the drugs, the porn or the marriage-brokering. Rick does get into it, though, passing up chances to flee in exchange for acting the hero. At that point, only good luck and the goodwill Poon's stored up around town can save him from an execution. Then he and Poon light out upcountry to live happily ever after. For now. Probably.

Meet the Author

Michael Nolan lived in Asia for six years, more or less, spending last two in Bangkok, married to a woman who speaks like Poon while writing textbooks for a South Korean company that may or may not have existed. He never worked for the mafia that he's aware of, unless you count that stint teaching military cadets, and was only beaten up the once-and the cabbie was in the right that time, probably. Before fleeing the Midwest, he worked as a reporter, test grader, band manager, FedEx box-thrower and night watchman, but not all at once. He currently lives in New York.
