A Lotus For Miss Quon
He found the diamonds by accident. Just one little tap and the wall had split open, revealing a million dollars worth of glittering gems - gems which Steve Jaffe had no intension of giving up. So when his houseboy theatened to run and tell the police, Jaffe had no alternative but to stop him. And that's when the second accident occured... The accident of murder...Jaffe had to get out of Saigon - quick. And the only person who could help him was Nhan Lee Quon, beautiful, trusting, the woman he'd used before but never so cruelly or so selfishly...
I drive a goddam nail into a goddam wall and make a goddam fortune! (from A Lotus For Miss Quon, 1960)
