When Chris Hunter is called into Vietnam to investigate the disappearance of a high-level executive, he uncovers a conspiracy that reaches all the way to the top of the organization.
Chris Hunter is an off-the-books fixer for Greater Dragon Asia, an international investment fund specializing in Southeast Asia. He takes care of all the dirty work that needs doing but is best left unrecorded and unmarked in the email records of the company. With nearly a decade in the military, a youth spent in a gang, and familiarity with Southeast Asia, Chris is ideal to do the job.
Kickback is the first Chris Hunter Adventure.
About the Author
Steven Jacob is a man who likes adventure . . . at least on paper. He spent ten years living in Southeast Asia, working as a lawyer and consultant. Spending much of his time immersed in books and booze, he gave himself an autodidact's education on the region. He also got to know the laws and cultures through study and experience. He is an expert on Indochina. He was educated in Utah and California, and is now sober for several months. (It interferes with his medications.) He likes to go crazy in Asia, where he's had a psychotic break in Vietnam--twice--and once in Cambodia. But his mental health is not the full Monty. He became a writer in elementary school shortly after discovering Isaac Asimov, though he has since moved past a reading diet of pure sci-fi and fantasy. Now he reads a diet of history, award winners, and thrillers. He believes that you have to read the fiction to write the fiction, so that's what he does.
