Harry Vee is a Private Investigator, he has just returned from Tokyo with a fervent desire never to go back. Harry is unceremoniously picked up and taken to meet Jessica Lee who strongly requests that he go to Hong Kong in search a missing 16 year old girl named Anita Fong. The girl was last seen leaving school seven days ago and has not been seen or heard from since. Harry is not thrilled with the prospect of going back to Hong Kong but against his better judgment and because he has a debt to pay to the man who is requesting his assistance he leaves Seoul Korea for Hong Kong with great trepidation to begin his investigation.

This story will hold you hostage as the character Harry Vee takes you into a foreign world of many complex dimensions and compels the reader to become entangled in his search and subsequent struggle for survival. He encounters Hong Kong gangsters, the Chinese Secret Service and amateur UFO sleuths in his quest to find Anita Fong. He is depicted as a strong, loyal, trustworthy, scotch drinking, cigarillo smoking yet slightly worn out man who finds trouble at every turn.

Anita 'Mui' Fong is found and rescued by Harry Vee and they develop a mutual trust and genuine friendship.Based on the events of her rescue, the question for Harry becomes "Who is he really rescuing her from?". Henry is determined to help her no matter the personal cost he may suffer.Her life and ultimate survival is literally placed in his hands. Harry makes his way across East Asia with Mui in his endeavor to untangle the conspiracy surrounding them before time runs out.

The main characters of Harry and Mui are extremely credible, well developed and likeable. The secondary characters are intricately defined and contribute to the complexity of the story. The constant action, drama and suspense are never ending. This story will hold you hostage as Harry and Mui travel across East Asia and encounter turmoil at every turn. The writing style will keep you totally involved and on the edge of your seat until the final page is read.

The descriptive writing of their travels and the landscapes they encounter are clearly drawn in such a way that you will make the journey with them. The fast paced action and drama will keep you embroiled in the story. I highly recommend this book to all readers. Find a comfortable seat and enjoy the ride as you will not be able to put this book down! I look forward to reading more from Author Michael Young.
