That question is the topic of conservation at a reunion dinner attended by six well-seasoned agents still holding high level posts in the MI-6 division of the British Secret Service.

After an inconclusive debate, Marlo—a half-British, half-Tibetan member of the group—brings up for consideration the case of Diem. The group is well aware that Diem—the Chinese kingpin of a secret triad—had made a fortune smuggling Laotian-refined heroin out of Vietnam to markets around the world. When Saigon fell to the North Vietnamese, Diem’s triad network unraveled. The most recent field reports indicated that he and his family were killed. However, Marlo has acquired direct intelligence showing that Diem had sent his wife and two children up the Mekong River to take refuge with family members just south of the Chinese border.Diem had planned to follow them.

But the chaos that erupted throughout Indochina in the early 1970s forced him to flee Saigon aboard a ship hauling refugees to camps in Hong Kong. To join his family, Diem maps out a very long detour. He plans to make his way up the Yangtze River into the remote interior of China and from there down the Mekong into northern Laos where his family waits. He first needs the assistance of a Hong Kong triad confederate to get into China—then at the fag end of Chairman Mao’s Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution.

Where and how Marlo acquires his intelligence concerning what Diem encountered and learned on his perilous odyssey is central to the report he relates to his comrades. Diem’s ultimate fate is to be revealed by the VOICE OF THE DRAGON.
