Axis Stone has been hired by beautiful Lola Lovejoy to find her sexy lounge singer twin sister, Kitty. But this is no ordinary gig for the young PI more familiar with nickel and dime local cases for his bread and butter - this is a kidnapping of international importance in one of the crime capitals of the world: Manila in the Philippines.
Having to troll sleazy girlie bars in the red light district of Manila for leads, the haunt of kidnappers, drug lords and racketeers, Axis could easily meet a shadowy death and no one would ever know it. The odds of solving the kidnapping get even higher when he discovers he's up against a bent cop on the take and his partner Ringo Raye, the biggest drug lord in South East Asia. Together they have built a crime empire that is above the law and beyond suspicion. Is he out of his depth? This is a city where life is cheap - where a couple of hundred bucks buys a hit on anyone, and where a flash of a credit card buys you anything you want. Every car has a gun under the front seat - this town after dark is not for the faint hearted.
A tenacious, tough, handsome, streetwise Aussie with a lethal left hook, a sharp tongue, and an education from the pool halls of life, Axis has only one weakness to speak of: a taste for beautiful women ... and this time he finds himself in a town loaded with treats ... but he soon learns the price they come for.
