Introduction Mike Pettit’s thirty years of adventure and experiences living and working in the Far East Gives him the voice of authority in his writings of Asian business and crime, and how the two are considered one in the same. The Oriental’s obsession with power and greed, gambling and sex, and the need to win at any cost. The driving force of “Face”, and the life threatening humiliation of losing it. Pettit has spent his share of time in little known back-water ports around Asia, learning and applying the rules of the East; knowing when a business deal is done, when to run, believe only half of what you see, and nothing of what you are told; survival goes in the plus column. Always an avid SCUBA diver, Mike spends his time diving his way around the Caribbean, searching for gold doubloons and pieces of eight. At home, on Florida’s Emerald Coast, he spends his time writing the “John Locke Thriller” series. Stories of lost honor, stolen money, danger coming at you like a tracer round; where the good guy doesn’t always win, and the bad guy isn’t always who you think it is.
