Description: Asher is in trouble. He's washed up in Phnom Penh, the UNESCO monument-preservation work has dried up, and he's at the end of his spiritual and financial ropes. But highest-quality heroin is wonderfully cheap in this dangerous and corrupt part of the world. So with funds borrowed from the loan-sharking massage parlor owner Mr. Hawk and the aid of journalist Reese as an unwitting mule, he plans to move some weight to New York. His partner in this venture is Julie, his once and future love, a beautiful Harvard-educated dabbler in trendy nihilism and fashionable marginalization. It's all been carefully planned, but when Julie decides to improvise, the plans swiftly and dangerously unravel in ways that put the lives of these three complexly flawed young Americans in mortal danger.

Robert Bingham's "Lightning On The Sun" is a beautifully plotted and written novel with the fast-paced suspense of a thriller and the moral resonance and exotic setting of one of Graham Greene's classic works. The novel's sense of place, whether steamy Phnom Penh or bustling New York or a leafy New England prep school, is unerring, as is its sense of postmodern moral compromise and the disillusioning ways of the world. It offers an exhilarating read; the literary legacy of one of his generation's most gifted writers.
