Overview

We have every respect for persons entertaining strict religious principles, but we fear that very godly people are not suited to the drug trade. - James Matheson co-founder of Jardine Matheson.

‘Your father is a pit bull who has to tell himself he is a romantic because otherwise he would lie awake at night screaming at his own evil. He is the devil with a brandy balloon. All my life I try and explain this to you. Please do not try and make me cry for him. I would rather weep for a scorpion being crushed under the wheels of a truck.'

All her life Noelle Crocé has tried to keep her son away from his father and his 'business'. But now he is dying and Lucien has serious money problems in France. He comes back to Bangkok and is dragged into his deadly world. Baptiste is helped in his seduction by Ruby Wen, who has serious problems of her own. She owes money to almost every gangster in Hong Kong. They are all looking for her triad boyfriend, Eddie Lau. She is the only one who knows where he is which is perhaps why someone arranges for her to spend some time in Bangkok's notorious Maha Chai prison.

John Keelan tries to turn her for the DEA and help break an international drug cartel. Sure he wants the conviction; but who he is really after is the man who ordered the killing of his wife and baby daughter three years before ...

Described by one critic as James Clavell meets The Godfather, Godless is the last book in the OPIUM series, and traces one man's descent into hell, from the dark underbelly of Bangkok to its final breathless conclusion in a typhoon-battered Hong Kong.

Meet the Author

Colin is the best selling author of more than twenty novels. Born in north London, he worked for many years in TV and radio and freelanced for many leading newspapers and magazines such as San Francisco Chronicle, Qantas inflight magazine and Playboy magazine. He has been a novelist for the last twenty years, with his work reaching best seller lists from Germany to Mexico, Australia to Romania, Spain to Brazil. He had published in many genres, historical epics such as HAREM and AZTEC and SILK ROAD, as well as historical thrillers such as ANASTASIA and the OPIUM series. Like many of his novels, VENOM is based on true life incidents.

He lived for many years near Margaret River in Western Australia, where he also worked for many years in the volunteer ambulance service. "I'd be at my desk typing, then thirty minutes later I'd be crawling into an overturned car. It was an unusual life"

He travels regularly to research his novels and his quest for authenticity led him to run with the bulls in Pamplona, pursue tornadoes across Oklahoma and black witches across Mexico, go cage shark diving in South Africa and get tear gassed in a riot in La Paz. He also completed a nine hundred kilometre walk of the camino in Spain.
