The Philippines. Former US Marine Paul McCain has traded in his rifle for a camera as a wildlife photographer. When he spies young villagers unearthing lost WWII gold, he happily captures their cries of delight. But their joyous shouts are silenced when they’re abducted and brutally murdered by a ruthless presidential candidate.
Desperate for any allies outside the politician’s deadly grip, McCain will do whatever it takes to bring the powerful leader down. But with his quarry poised to win the election, the clock ticks down on his quest for justice. And taking on a man this connected puts the hardened veteran right in the killer’s crosshairs…
Deadly Election is the first book in the engrossing Asian Intrigue thriller series. If you like tenacious heroes, political scandal, and no-holds-barred action, then you’ll love Arthur Crandon’s fast-paced adventure.
He is no stranger to the Philippines, but Paul McCain has never before faced the ruthless evil of the Chinese Mafia. After a failed marriage, buying a hotel in Angeles, the Philippines seemed a good idea for the retired marine. It would take him back to a familiar place where he served years earlier. The familiar places, the cheap alcohol, the girls… Maybe he could forget his wife.
When he bought it, Paul did not know that the local mafia boss, Charlie Wong, also wanted the popular western style hotel. People get kidnapped, people get killed, and people run away frightened, but not Paul – he is made of sterner stuff.
There are many retired US servicemen living in Angeles City. Thousands were stationed there years ago, and many stayed on or returned later, in retirement. They rally to the cause when Paul needs their help.
The battles are long, and bloody. The city is turned upside down while the two sides vie for superiority..
The story does not end well for either side. Plot twists and side plots are weaved to great effect – many secrets are not revealed until the end, and some, not even then.
