It was a true story from his time in the Caribbean, and told casually in a bar in SE Asia…
but it triggered a strange and unexpected response.
A writer backpacking in Asia finds himself a quiet place to work. It’s a guest house in the off-season. As he settles down to work on a crime story and finds a bar girl who wants to be his muse.
Once he tells the story, just because a bar girl wants to hear it, fiction and reality blur together in a curious combination. And the outcome changes his entire situation.
