Navy pilot Jason Harte crashed and escaped to Laos where he disregarded warnings about danger and began competing with murderous Laotian businessmen. He discovered a way to buy raw gold from miners and turned the idea into a fortune that he used to build a financial empire. Forged stock certificates and attempted murder crushed his company. Survival meant retaliating under dangerous conditions.
