Deep in the heart of the Burmese jungle, corruption thrives and destructive secrets come to light

Business is booming for hotel chain Straits Royal Group. They have recently partnered with business mogul David Winterbourne to build their most valuable asset, Tripitaka, a luxury holiday resort in the jungle of northern Burma, and their profits have skyrocketed. But this unexpected boost in capital has not gone unnoticed; is it simply a case of good fortune, or is there more than meets the eye?

Meanwhile, in Australia, Patrick Hyde and his girlfriend, Ros, have been living a life of domestic bliss. It appears his days of spywork are behind him – almost. He has been helping the Australian Security & Intelligence service on an investigation into an international drugs ring.

The West is being flooded with ever greater amounts of heroin, and Australian intelligence points to a source in Burma. Straits Royal's sudden profitability raises Hyde's suspicions – it appears they could be one vast distribution network. But when Burmese nationals working with Hyde start to go missing, these suspicions suddenly become dangerous, and could cost him his life...

Slipping into Shadow is an espionage thriller of deadly corruption and political intrigue, perfect for fans of Tom Clancy and Len Deighton.
