The knock on the door of art expert Madison Dupre's low-rent New York apartment is that of a Thai cafe deliveryman-but instead of succulent noodles, he brings her a rare work of art from the incredible Angkor Wat in the jungles of Cambodia.Angkor Wat, a wonder of the ancient world, is considered by many to be more majestic than the monuments of the Egyptian pharaohs. Left unprotected, the vast complex has been a treasure trove for thieves who mercilessly cut off pieces, mutilating thousand-year-old sculptures with chainsaws.Madison knows there is no possibility that this artefact could have been acquired legally. That knock on her door sends her to one of the most dangerous places on the planet: Phnom Penh, the sex/sin/drug capital of the Far East.Stepping into a cauldron of murder and antiquity-looting that takes her from New York to Cambodia, Hong Kong to Thailand, Madison keeps one step ahead of temple robbers who kill as easily as they steal.
She finds comfort in the arms of a soldier of fortune; tangles with a Russian model and her 'bodyguard,' who introduce her to the New Eroticism; and, gets entangled with a Cambodian prince whose sex moves not even the worldly Madison has tried.
