A routine investigation into a Chinese art supplies company unearths a smuggling ring. The trail leads through a warehouse filled with looted antiquities in the boomtown of Shenzhen, just north of Hong Kong; to the lair of a vicious ex-South Vietnamese general now living in Thailand; and finally to the murderous Khmer Rouge in the ancient temples and more recent killing fields of Cambodia. Based on the sordid facts of the illegal trade in stolen Cambodian art, GRAVE IMPORTS is a hotpot of high adventure in exotic locales, fascinating characters, high commerce, terrible crime and one mixed-up, reluctant hero trying to shed light into some of the darkest corners of Asia.
