A Powerful Mix for a Complex, sometimes Dark Novel!Malika waits for someone to pay her price – a few scraps of heroin.The smugglers’ village, close to the Afghan border, is cold and unwelcoming – its only entertainment, the whores who will put on a show and give themselves to anyone willing to pay.A Russian gangster on the run from the KGB finds himself there against his will, but where else can he go – they want him dead.A drug lord, an Afghan warlord and the Russian Mafia are entwined in an plan to raise the quantity of heroin shipped out of Afghanistan.The drug lord sees the Russian mafia taking his business. He will not let it happen without a fight. The Afghan smugglers’ leadership, double-dealing and treacherous as ever sense an opportunity to play the Tajikistan drug lord off against the Russian mafia.The Afghans only care for their money, not who they deal with and if that means death to a few or many, concerns them little.

Born in the late forties, the post-war baby boom in England; Phillip Strang’s childhood years were spent in a small town, two hours drive west of London.
A less complex time, and as a teenager, complete mobility, due to a bicycle – a three-speed Raleigh – and a more trusting community. It was the days before mobile phones, the internet, terrorism and wanton violence. An avid reader since childhood.
In his early twenties, the author, with a degree in electronics engineering, and an unabated wanderlust to see the world left the cold and damp climes of England for Sydney, Australia – the first semi-circulation of the globe, complete. Now, forty years later, he still resides in Australia, although many intervening years spent in a myriad of countries, some calm and safe ‒ others, no more than war zones.
