Product description...

Investigating heroin trafficking is DEA Special Agent Gary Howell’s specialty, and Thailand in 1983, home of the Golden Triangle, delivers euphoria to 80 percent of the world’s junkies.

DEA Special Agent Gary Howell is assigned to a remote posting in southern Thailand in 1983. Living in a culture devoid of any Western trappings, learning a new language, and working under a clueless supervisor, Gary struggles—and then things go from challenging to deadly.
A chance reunion with a Vietnam War buddy on the resort island of Phuket ends when the friend’s brother is found murdered. Despite warnings from the Thailand DEA director not to get involved in the investigation, Gary feels indebted to help his friend find the truth. 
Digging and scratching, he obtains helpful information that allows him to piece together a picture of the killer—and now, how to find him?

Inspired by his own seventeen years as a DEA agent working abroad, including living eight years in Thailand, Mark Lloyd has written a gritty, realistic, but heart-pounding page-turner. The Redeeming Shot
