Description

The knock on the door of art expert Madison Dupre's 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. Left unprotected, the vast complex has been a treasure trove for thieves who mercilessly cut off and mutilate pieces from thousand-year-old sculptures with chainsaws. Madison knows there is no possibility that this artifact 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. Going 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; mixes 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. How much is Madison willing to sacrifice in order to protect her priceless, irreplaceable antiquities?show more
