    Relative Danger
    Relative Danger
    Picture a hotel room in 1948 Singapore. Picture a dispute between black marketer and thief Russell Pearce and an associate one who opens fire and murders Russell Pearce. Fast forward to present-day Pottsville, Pennsylvania. Young Doug Pearce, just fired from his steady job in the brewery, has never strayed far from home. But hes always found stories of his Uncle Russ, the family black sheep, fascinating. In comes a letter from an old friend of his dead uncle inviting him up to Toronto. Doug, at loose ends and bored with killing time, accepts. On arrival, he learns that wealthy and glamorous Edna wants Doug to solve the murder of Russell Pearce and exonerate the chief suspect. And what about the legendary red diamond he was thought to be smuggling? Doug, nervous but game, agrees to play detective. How bad can it be to jet off to a glamour spot or two and have an adventure? Whoa! By the end of his first day in Casablanca, Doug knows hes made a mistake. And while he meets people eager to help a retired museum curator, a beautiful and self-absorbed heiress, and her elderly father, a colleague of Russell Pearce it becomes clear that someone else is interested in Doug and his quest. From Morocco to Egypt to Bahrain to Singapore, Doug stumbles on. And whether hes escaping across Cairo rooftops, ducking bullets in a high-speed desert chase, or killing time in a crowded Egyptian jail cell, Doug is sure of one thing: He has no clue what hes doing. But surely hell think of something as hes propelled full circle back to Singapore and the famed Raffles Hotel. Hes definitely not 007 ... but will he prove to be a zero?
