Overview

Manila hotelier Steve Conway returns to Vietnam to look for an old wartime friend and falls in love with a local girl. But the relationship is threatened by cross-cultural differences, family resistance, and a jealous, dangerous suitor.

Conway persuades his employers to allow him to look at expanding their operation in Saigon. He has found the love of his life and the relationship blossoms but behind the scenes he is unaware that moves are taking place to bring about its destruction. He also does not realise he is being stalked by a crazy ex-Marine intent on killing him.

What started out as a short holiday becomes a turning point in Steve Conway's life, leading to a roller coaster ride of love, hate, murder and ultimate tragedy.

Book two of John Pullinger’s trilogy ‘The Last Cyclo to Thanh Da’, set in Vietnam, finds the hero, veteran Steve Conway, on a journey, to find an old wartime friend. The devastated city of Saigon has become a booming free-wheeling metropolis powered by the God, Honda. A romantic interlude engulfs Conway in a cocktail of violence and murder fuelled by deception, the clash of cultures and the undercurrents of hatred still festering in the minds of some combatants from both sides of the Vietnam conflict. Pullinger’s knowledge of the language and customs is a masterful blend of travel odyssey and explosive action with a surprise ending.
