Jungle-skilled, silent and lethal, Nguyen Ngoc Minh has killed for the Viet Cong and then for the Americans. Imprisoned and tortured after the Communist victory, he escapes with his wife and baby daughter to Hong Kong, but only after being forced to watch Thai pirates rape and kill his two eldest daughters.

Now the proud owner of the Double Happiness Chinese takeaway in South London, he watches his daughter grow into a beautiful young woman, secure in the knowledge that the horrors of his homeland are finally behind him. Until the day an IRA bomb in a Knightsbridge store snatches his remaining family from him in a horrific maelstrom of fire and glass.
