Hustle the East: A Novel

by Mark Tawen

Paperback(First Printing ed.)



In a land torn by lies, it’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys.

A semi-idealistic American college graduate arrives in Southeast Asia intending to set a good example. An orphan on the Plain of Jars becomes a Buddhist monk and embodies compassion until the bombs begin to fall. A headstrong young woman with royal blood must decide which of her suitors to marry and whether to flee from her country. Against a background of actual events, three narratives unspool to tell a tale of corruption and betrayal, commitment and love.
