About this title


Asia's most dangerous flashpoint - North Korea. Mission Impossible for three people - a Sartre-reading yakuza, a glamorous American activist, and a shadowy North Korean agent. Let Martin Gower take you on a dizzying ride through the seething jungles of Mindanao, down the neon-splattered back-alleys of Tokyo, across the vast baking emptiness of Mongolia and into the innermost chambers of the Dear Leader's personal pleasure dome. "He was the last man alive truly worth killing, the last man whose death would truly make a difference. In today's world, he was the Maximum Target." "A very imaginative and exciting tale about the world's strangest and most dangerous country" - Bill Emmott, former editor of The Economist. "A hell of a book that I wish I'd written" Robert Whiting, author of Tokyo Underworld. "Careening manically from one end of East Asia to the other, Maximum Target serves up nail-biting political intrigue seasoned with wickedly black humour." Mark Schreiber, The Japan Times "No-one else has described the North Korean regime so succintly as when Martin Gower called it 'a lesson in how cruelty, deceit and the destruction of human potential could be systematized in the name of equality.'" Chuck Downs, former Pentagon official.

About the Author:
