Overview

For Mark Rohr, a decorated Desert Storm vet, the last ten years have been filled with countless misadventures around the globe and shady jobs, like his current stint as a bouncer at a nameless whorehouse bar in Thailand. When the beautiful and naïve Robin Antonucci arrives from the States and hires him to help find Shawn, her missing brother since the tsunami, Mark sees the chance to make some easy money: guide her around until she gets bored or until the money runs out and she heads home. Simple.
But what should be an easy job in a tropical paradise quickly sours when they meet the stunning Thai prostitute Pim, who claims to be Shawn’s wife. Within hours two men are dead and Jarin, southern Thailand’s most notorious gangster, wants Mark to pay. Getting away alone would be difficult. Getting away with Robin and Pim, plus an old man and a small boy—the only members of Pim’s family to survive the tsunami—might prove impossible.
With nowhere to hide and no idea where they are heading, the group sets off around the Thai coast, racing through beach resorts and remote villages, staying just one step ahead of Jarin’s men as they all move closer to the mystery surrounding Shawn.

Former Gulf War I veteran Mark Rohr works as a bouncer in the resort community Phuket, Thailand. Fellow American Robin Antonucci offers Mark five thousand dollars to find her missing brother Shawn Keller, who vanished after the horrific tsunami devastated Phuket a couple of years ago.------------- Mark agrees although he does not trust Robin as something is OUT OF ORDER with her request leading him to believe she is not telling him the full truth. She explains her sibling is a diver so they visit diving shops and business that employ divers. They also investigate whorehouses and sleazy bars. Every person they question offers nothing except trouble as someone, perhaps the target of their search, wants Shawn to remain MIA.--------------- The key to this Thai thriller besides the fabulous location is that the prime players especially the hero and the villains have good and bad qualities that make them seem real. The story line is fast-paced and filled with red herrings and incredible but plausible twists that will keep the audience reading in anticipation of the next spin. Fans will appreciate Charles Benoit as he continues to earn the reputation of an overseas travel guide to action and adventure (see OUT OF ORDER and RELATIVE DANGER).---------------- Harriet Klausner
