... is cheap and the risk is big.
That risk first to complete a job and then to be taken off the game, but permanently...
Place: Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia.
Main Players: Dox, mercenary and master sniper, Gant, perhaps CIA or Homeland Sicurity or the NSA.
Target: Rithisak Sorm, Ex-Khmer Rouge, central figure in human - and not only - trafficking.
Gant pays Dox to kill Sorm because the U.S. of A. see in him a more than legitimate candidate for being a "target".
There isn't ONE thing in the world Sorm is NOT trafficking with - drugs, children, money ... And makes tons in every valid currency - and his helpers on the "right" side of the law, too.
And now, that a meeting of the UN-GIFT, the United Nations Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking will take place at Phnom Penh, this monster will leave his hiding place in Pailin province to to contact his peers. Best opportunity to strike!
But not everything is like it looks - not Dox, often underestimated, not Gant, a really fishy smelling character, not Sorm ...
So - at the very end - some will live, others will die.
And Barry Eisler one more time points his finger right at the U.S. Government accusing the main players of abuse of power.
And ... who likes the way Barry Eisler writes, this story is a must-read!
Maybe get a taste with this story and then You find Yourself hooked for more from Dox.
