Nicholas Linnear is threatened with the destruction of not just his business empire but his very soul. His investigation into the theft of his most advanced computer technology has led him and his friend Lew Croaker into a maze of terrifying connections between the Mafia, the Japanese Yakuza and the Government.
The trail leads Nicholas first to Vietnam, then back, eventually, to Japan. Here he must confront the legacy of his past.
Croaker, meanwhile, has become deeply embroiled in the workings of two organised crime families. With Johnny Leonforte, he could lose his life at any moment. With Margarite Goldoni, he has already lost his heart.
'Second Skin' takes Nicholas and Croaker on a vertiginous ride to salvation – or damnation. From Vietnam to Florida, from the immediate post-war years to the present day and just beyond, this is a tour de force of vibrant imagination, outstanding characterisation and great storytelling.
