Product Details


“A madcap, pulse-quickening race across the far reaches of Asia…. This work is among the most provocative and well-written texts on Asian organized crime that I have read in years…. Politics, history, culture, suspense and copious amounts of good humour — Paper Fan has it all.”
The Globe and Mail

"Southeast Asia is like this. Asian organized crime — in Vancouver or Hong Kong — is like this. Great stories contain such trajectories and great investigative journalists display such compulsions. Paper Fan is unbuttoned and out-sized and wonderfully wild."
—Charles Foran

"Part cop, part journalist, part friend, Gould pursues his prey with the relentless fervour of an Indiana Jones — and takes you along for a fearful yet funny ride through the underworld."
—Julian Sher

"With verve, style and humour Terry Gould leads readers on an unforgettable journey into a ruthless underworld populated by gangsters and one almost mythic, but undeniably ingenious mobster who transcends them all. A remarkable story told by a remarkable storyteller."
—Andrew Mitrovica, author of Covert Entry

Praise for The Lifestyle:


“In this intelligent approach to this taboo subject — without advocating the heterosexual lifestyle or promoting it — Gould explains what has always only been exposed, and thus wildly misunderstood.”
The Toronto Sun

“Gould has fashioned his extensive research on the phenomenon into a timely, serious, useful book — you can read it tonight and still respect yourself in the morning.”
Toronto Star
