White Ghosts free pdf When Michael receives a distress call from Sean, he drops everything to get on the first plane to Hong Kong. Frustrated with post-University life in London, he relishes the prospect of joining an exclusive community of young, overpaid expatriates amid the glamorous skyscrapers of the Far East, and, of course, rescuing his heartbroken best mate. But Michael soon realizes that the alluring veneer of Hong Kong holds a dark side. His so-called friends are taking recreational indulgence to the extreme, milking the time and the place for every last drop of colonial excess. With the Handover to Chinese rule looming, Michael finds that it's no easy feat to fit in. And he still has feelings for Candy, Sean's beautiful Eurasian girlfriend. And then the deaths start happening. When Candy goes missing, Michael fears he knows the truth. After all, he knows all about his best friend Sean -- the porn, the prostitutes, the drugs, the depression and, most important of all, the terrible secret they share from school...
