~Bill Ott, "A Hard-Boiled Gazetteer to the Pacific Rim"
A remote Australian bush town. Laos 1979. Political corruption in modern China. A Buddhist Thai policeman. The hills of Bali. The south Australia coast. Singapore's high society. North Korea's Ministry of People's Security. A Hong Kong mansion. A gritty police procedural set in Queensland. South Korea in 1974. The mean streets of Sydney. Manila's Quezon City. Violent robberies in Auckland City. A sidelined police inspector in Communist Shanghai. The wild mountains at the Lao-Vietnam border. These are just a few of the people and places you'll find in the noir set in the Pacific Rim, for those who like their reads dark and and gritty and with an Asian flair.
