Corruption is the name of the game in the turmoil of eastern Burma, and deceit is ever present. Amid drug traffickers and Buddhist monks, government agents and ethnic rebels, it is not clear who is on which side. Drew Simoneaux is a catalyst for disruption. He questions boundaries, distorts logic and creates chaos. He can manufacture perceptual illusions in order to blend into his surroundings. But this time the expert in chicanery finds himself captured by an ethnic drug lord and tortured for information he does not possess. Now South Wind International must find a way to rescue one of their own. But Sumitra, a Shan princess with a mission, is also on the trail of the missing Drew. She is resolute, candid and surprising, and her appearance will alter the pattern of Drew's life. But Sumitra is not the only one to engender change. Drew, a self acknowledged master of spectacle, knows how to bring about a few transformations himself. The unpredictable Burmese supernatural spirits known as nats have a role in this tale of adventure, romance and revenge, as do the zawgyis and weikzas, mythical beings from Burmese folklore.
