And now, face-to-face with Tuki and a ruby so beautiful it has its own name, Michael must make a choice: move forward, protect Tuki, get to the bottom of her entanglement with the nak lin and see that shes safe, or run back to his fathers fishing boat, hiding from the ills of the world beneath a watchcap and a raincoat. Foolhardy, compassionate Michael hardly has to think This is t he follow-up to the LAMBDA-award nominated Provincetown Follies, Bangkok Blues.
