"A WORLD OF TROUBLE is one terrific novel, a tale of friendship, loyalty, and betrayal set against the backdrop of a country in social and political upheaval." - The Bangkok Post
"Tight and atmospheric, Needham's Jack Shepherd novels are thrillers of the highest caliber, a perfect combination of suspense and wit." - The Malaysia Star
Jack Shepherd was sick of Washington politics, sick of corporate law, and even a little sick of himself. So he hit the road looking for a new start, made a couple of wrong turns, and somehow wound up in Hong Kong. Now he needs a job, and being a lawyer for General Chalerm Kitnarock is a job, so he takes it.
Shepherd could certainly have done a lot worse for himself. Charlie Kitnarok is the world's ninety-eighth richest man. He rules an international corporate empire and controls billions in personal assets. But he's also a former Thai prime minister now living in exile in Dubai. When he's not making money, he's plotting his return to political power in Thailand.
For Shepherd, that could be a problem. Thailand already has a prime minister, and she's a woman with whom Shepherd once had a brief relationship. It will get particularly messy if, as Shepherd suspects, Charlie is smuggling arms to his supporters and intends to use the Thai army to seize control of the country. Can Shepherd keep his two friends from destroying each other and prevent Thailand from sliding into chaos?
Thailand is hurtling closer and closer to a bloody civil war. And as unlikely as it may sound, Jack Shepherd may be the only person on earth who can stop it.
