Matt Chance is on the run. Murder, sexual exploitation, designer drugs, international terrorism and an off the rails CIA station chief. When Matt Chance is asked to look into what first appears to be a simple but brutal crime, he has no idea of the combination of forces which will send him on the run and threaten his life as well as the lives of those closest to him. A teenaged street boy is found viciously murdered in the most unlikely of places, his nude body laid out on the bare concrete floor of the slaughterhouse where they kill the pigs. The boy was a student at the muay thai school run by Coach Somchai, who is also Matt's mentor. Afraid the cops may find the killing easy to dismiss as just another meth crazed killing, Coach Somchai calls on Matt to look into the boy's death. Matt finds the boy was drawn into a sex service ring whose clients include international terrorists and those who control them. Most troubling of all, the trail leads Matt to a covert CIA operation and one of the most notorious of CIA operatives, a man Matt has clashed with before in Iraq. The operative's power in Thailand means Matt's safety is in question. He must run for his life searching outside of Thailand for allies to help counterbalance the threat and solve the murder.
