You don’t have to be smart to stay out of trouble, it’s getting into it that takes talent. Being framed for murder wasn’t what former Carabinieri officer Sergio Biancardi, now stuck pennyless in Phnom Penh, had in mind when he had accepted the job offer of that fat, sleazy Italian restaurateur, married to far too beautiful and far too young Fabiana.
But the night Sergio walks into the scorching inferno of a monumental trap whose bait is his own boss’ wife, he has to admit he cannot blame anyone else but himself.
