Passage of arms

12.29

The Tan brothers need to dispose profitably of an abandoned terrorist arms cache, but they need an accomplice, an ignorant frontman. American tourist Greg Nilson is about to receive a one-way ticket to the dangerous world of gun-running.

Description

‘The man who lit the way for us all’ Len Deighton

An Indian clerk, Girija Krishnan, sees the opportunity of his lifetime when he stumbles on an abandoned cache of arms hidden in the Malayan jungle. If he can sell the weapons, he will be able to achieve his lifelong dream of owning a bus company – although the penalty for gun-running is death. Soon his decision becomes the catalyst for a chain of events involving an entrepreneurial Chinese family, a corrupt Colonel and, finally, a naïve couple of American tourists who find themselves horribly out of their depth.
