1969, Southeast Asia
Irish journalist Murray Wilde travelled to Southeast Asia for some rest and recuperation.
But when he meets the charming and persuasive Frenchman Charles Pol in Cambodia, he agrees to take part in a risky smuggling operation.
Taking advantage of the American troops dropping food packages into the areas of Vietnam devastated by the ongoing war, Murray volunteers to take part in an aerial ‘rice-drop’ – using it to plan his own illegal heist.
But this billion-dollar plot can’t be undertaken by Murray alone – especially when he is surrounded by American CIA agents.
He enlists the help of Sammy Ryderbeit – a vigilante pilot with a troubling past, and he must trust the information he is being fed by Charles Pol.
But when people around him start dying, Murray begins to question everything. How much is he willing to gamble when his own life is at stake?
The Tale of the Lazy Dog is the second classic terrorist adventure novel in the Charles Pol espionage thriller series by Alan Williams.
