No one is coming to your aid. We have ensured this. Six strangers wake up on a remote island in the Florida Keys with no memory of their arrival. They soon discover their common bond: all of them are heroin addicts. As the first excruciating pangs of withdrawal make themselves felt, the six notice a yacht anchored across open water. On it lurk four shadowy figures, protected by the hungry sharks that patrol the waves. So begins a dangerous game. The six must undertake the impossible—swim to the next island where a cache of heroin awaits, or die trying. When alliances form, betrayal is inevitable. As the fight to survive intensifies, the stakes reach terrifying heights—and their captors’ motives finally begin to emerge.

It's been years, since radical lesbian Jax Madigan had much contact with her conservative family. Her independence long ago ruled out peaceful co-existence with her relatives. Her only steady contact with her past is with her brother, Danny, who keeps in touch, despite his objection to her "lifestyle choices." But when Danny meets and brings home the woman of his dreams, Jax finds herself once more drawn into a family dynamic that is both rewarding and punishing, and even after all these years, intimately familiar. Danny's girl, Jenn, is beautiful, poised, articulate, and eager to spend time with the black sheep of the family. And it only takes a few visits to reveal she's as attracted to both Jax and Danny, as they are to her. Bait explores the limits of love and loyalty, sibling rivalry and tempting taboo. In a volatile mix of wit and wantonness, brother and sister, parents and children, in-laws and outlaws, must all decide how far they will go, to save someone's soul.

Travelling to the capital, Cordon becomes entangled in a lethally complex situation of his own. A situation much closer to Karen's case than either of them can imagine ...

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

David Albahari is one of the most prominent writers to emerge from the former Yugoslavia in the last twenty years. His serious, understated explorations of the self have influenced many writers of his native land's younger generation. The narrator of Bait has just exiled himself to Canada after the collapse of Yugoslavia and the death of his mother. As he listens to a series of audio tapes recorded by the mother years before, the narrator ponders her life and their relationship while simultaneously trying to come to terms with a new life of his own-one of exile and the confusion of a new language and culture. Bait is an exquisitely crafted novel that exhibits the wit and raw honesty Albahari's readers have long admired.

Dragon Bait is book II in a trilogy, three linked and contiguous novels which feature the same common primary characters and venues throughout a continuing story. Use of “fl ash-back” or back story reversions to earlier times/ places is common, allowing introduction of relevant but minor swatches of information and perspective. Book I, Involuntary Tour, published in 2009, was set in Bad Aibling, Germany, in 1968, Viet Nam in 1964-65, and briefl y the U.S. in 1965-66. Dragon Bait, more ambitious, is set in Bad Aibling, again in 1968; the U.S. in short segments over several periods; Asmara, Eritrea (Ethiopia) in 1960-62; Rothwesten and Gartow, Germany, in 1966-67; and Viet Nam in 1968. Book III, Falloff , projected for publication in mid-2011, is set almost entirely in Viet Nam, multiple locations, in 1969. Th ough each book stands alone as a novel, the entire story demands the range of the full trilogy.
