9781510701885: The Sixth Man: A Thriller

A quick wit and a sharp tongue alone won’t be enough for Captain Chyang Fang to survive this case.

Someone is murdering high-ranking Vietnamese government officials, so the head of Saigon’s homicide division, Captain Chyang Fang, a troubled Chinese Vietnamese man, is given the task of finding the killer. Hated by almost everyone in Saigon and an outcast in both Chinese and Vietnamese circles, Fang has to rely on his wit, biting sarcasm, and not-so-capable assistant, Sergeant Phan a man who would rather play on his smartphone than work to find the killer who leaves toy cobras on the bodies of his victims.

With the aid of a hunchbacked coroner who honed his skills watching episodes of CSI, and following a key lead that stretches back to the days of the Vietnam War, Fang is led on an opium-addled journey through modern-day Saigon, and if the killer doesn’t get him, the city and its people surely will.

Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more.

About the Author:

Ron Lealos graduated from Western Washington University and studied fiction under Tom Spanbauer for several years as part of the Dangerous Writing group in Portland, Oregon. In his non-writing life, he has developed, manufactured, and marketed a rapid home test for the detection of HIV antibodies. He is also the author of Pashtun and Don’t Mean Nuthin’. He resides in Vancouver, Washington.

Review:

"His descriptions of the former Saigon are vivid, featuring fruit proffered from carts in hot streets and dog meat masquerading as beef in four-star restaurants, and it’s all seasoned with very salty language; the mellifluous Vietnamese language, too, spices up the English dialogue. A fresh, enjoyable crime novel that mixes its characters’ base, murderous motivations with a twist of intrigue and history." --Kirkus
"How can you not love a Vietnamese - Chinese "half-breed" with a biting wit, keen intelligence - and a cast of characters that includes a hunchbacked coroner. And I learned some of the most lurid things to say in Vietnamese, along with great Caucasian jokes ("What do you call a Caucasian who ...."), some Buddhist and Confucian wisdom - this one is a real gem guys! Grab it on July 5! My hat is off to the author, Ron Lealos." --David Stifel, Audible.com
