'Every expatriate in Asia has a story to tell. Some write their stories down but,generally, we’d prefer that they didn’t. There are, however, notable exceptions, and Ron McMillan’s debut novel Yin Yang Tattoo joins that small but happy rank.' David Simmons in Asia Times

A decade later, in London, things are no better but just as the creditors are closing in a fat commercial assignment arrives from the K-N Group in Korea. In Seoul he bumps into his old lover, Jung-hwa, now married to one of K-N’s senior executives. Brodie finds the Seoul low life as congenial as ever, not least the beautiful hooker, Miss Hong. About the time he discovers he is part of an enormous corporate scam he receives a ghoulish package.
