But he leaves behind a wild past in Saigon’s notorious Eros bar, where hedonism often turned into something more sinister. Meanwhile in Saigon, the beautiful Amerasian young woman Nan Luc is determined to honour her father and find the truth behind her mother’s death. She attends a provincial corruption trial in Vietnam that reveals Stephenson’s lurid activities during the war, and driven by vengeance for her mother she crosses the ocean to America to kill her father. Determined to keep a lid on his past, Stephenson embarks on a tactical affair with his wife’s sister, before resorting to blackmail and murder as Nan Luc chases down her target. ‘The House of Eros’ is a pulsing international thriller from Donald James, author of such captivating books as ‘The House of Janus’ and ‘Once a Gentleman’. PRAISE FOR DONALD JAMES: ‘Nothing I have read from the school of le Carré is as good as Donald James’s first novel. Every detail of his strange twilit world is beautifully realised… all the characters are superbly etched… all in all this is the most exciting debut since John le Carré himself.’ THE SPECTATOR ‘A superb thriller clearly disguised as another saga. Handled with a dexterity Archer J. can only dream about. It deserves success.’ THE TIMES Donald James grew up in London during the Second World War. After graduating from Cambridge University he worked in Fleet Street and for the BBC, subsequently enjoying a highly successful career as a scriptwriter. He also wrote a number of best-selling novels, including the Inspector Vadim series. He died aged 76 in 2008, survived by twin daughters from his first marriage.
