Shanghai in the 1930s: a cosmopolitan city of drug and arms trafficking, espionage and political intrigue. For Harry Byrd, rakish owner of the infamous Flamingo café, the going is tough. Balancing between predatory local mandarins, corrupt officials and the sinister Japanese, he must fight for his very survival.
There are compensations, of course, such as a beautiful American journalist who visits the club. But is even she all that she seems? And what business brings to Shanghai such characters as the shady Vincent Maes or the extraordinary Waldo Bingham?
Fast paced and ingenious, Harry's story leads him through a labyrinth of threat, deception and love to a desperate and spectacular finale.
