Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This hefty novel packs two grisly murders, a large cast of exotic characters, and settings that range from Connecticut to Indochina. Although the first two-thirds are entertaining, according to PW , afterwards Lustbader "succumbs to windy philosophizing; the foolish heroics and cardboard characterization become irritating; and a gory, melodramatic ending is overlong."
Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

The murderous search for the Prey Dauw is on--the trio of weapons so imbued with mythic power that it is said whoever possesses them can dominate Indochina and control its opium. Two men have aleady been murdered for the Pray Duaw, and now their brothers, New York lawyer, Chris Haye, and NYPD detective Steve Guarda, are ready to face the savage madman who will stop at nothing to destroy them.
"Suspense that is sustained to the final page."
LOS ANGELES TIMES --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
French Kiss is a passionate description of the fight of two men to discover the killer of their respective brothers. As all Eastern suspense thrillers this book contains scenes of controlled violence and love. The reader is brought on trips to France, the U. S. and most of Southeast Asia. A super armchair exploration of the planet and its different inhabitants mannerisms and thinkings.

Format: Hardcover
A story of twists and turns and never a dull moment. The only time that this story is complete is within the final pages of the long novel. The book complete of 488 pages (paperback) never has a dull moment, almost all of the characters within this story live two lives that are never fully discovered till the end. This book is highly recommanded by me if you like international plotlines with flashs backs to Vietnam and placed currently at France, New York Cite, Connecicut and indochina.

I couldn't get past the first pages. Not my style. An author should go for the story line, not how brutally people can be killed. That doesn't show me how talented the writer is.

Format: Paperback
Another Eric Van Lustbader book that pulls an American character - in this case, two of them - into the depths of Asia. In this case, because of the death of some of their relatives.

At the heart of the matter is a search for some supposdedly mystical artificats, that some Indochinese druglords value highly. Therefore, this is where a lot of the book will end up.
