Summary [from the author]:
When a colleague is slain in cold blood, tough-guy word processor and private detective Chak Charon investigates—and soon finds himself out of a job, snatched from his apartment, and audited to within an inch of his life. Pursued by a vicious IRS agent, Charon takes refuge in a Chinatown boarding house and proceeds to discover the tax agency’s dirty little secret…at great cost.
