Nearly two decades after the fall of Vietnam, the knot of corruption and deceit that Rainbow Porter thought was safely buried in the alleys off Saigon's Tu Do street begins to unravel. An old comrade is blown apart. His Vietnamese daughter, April Bow, appears at Rainbow's mountain sanctuary with a cryptic message and a hidden agenda. The careful feelers Rainbow puts out to his old friends return disquieting news - a fortune is missing, a dead man may have resurrected himself, and the heart of the storm is sleeping in his spare bed.
