Falling in love has consequences---there's nothing new about that. But when an elite Brit falls for a Russian prostitute and wants to get her away from her pimp in Macau and marry her, those consequences become deadly.
Journalist Ray Sharp doesn't need someone else's troubles, but when his colleague pleads for help, his conscience won't let him say no. What seems like a simple favor entangles Ray in a maze of horror and violence that leads from the glittery nightclubs and sleazy brothels of Macau to a chamber of horrors on an island in the South China Sea and finally to Russia's Mafia-infested Pacific seaport of Vladivostok.
Based on a true story, "The Living Room of the Dead" takes place in the milieu of the decadent ex-pat life in Hong Kong and Macau at a dizzyingly dramatic time: These cities are about to fall back under Chinese rule. Fearful, people grab for whatever they can get. The air itself reeks of sex, money, and power. Here the only thing a person can count on is what's inside himself. For Ray, even that is something to wrestle with.
