In this follow-up to his chart-topping "Bali Raw", Malcolm Scott strips off the island’s sunny veneer to reveal its dark and dirty underbelly, taking the reader where no tourist guide ever will. Take a walk through the night streets of Kuta Beach to meet its wild and willing hookers, its dolled-up trannies and desperate college girls, and discover first hand all the sexy and sleazy secrets that the island hides by day. Creep through grimy alleyways awash with drugs and thugs and corrupt cops, and hang out in seedy bars full of cheap booze, rowdy pimps and bloody fist fights. Sneak a peek into the private lives of shifty locals and wide-eyed Australian tourists, and enjoy a voyeur’s view of the deceit, drama and everything else the island is afraid to show us. In yet another steamy exposé of Bali and its sins and secrets, Bali Undercover suggests why the island may no longer be paradise, but a paradise lost.

Considered one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations, the tropical island of Bali in Indonesia has long been the site for Western fantasies about paradise. Millions of tourists visit the Island of the Gods every year, from families treating the kids to a beach holiday to single men looking for cheap booze and sex. And for many young Westerners and Singaporeans, hardcore partying in Bali has become a rite of passage, but it is not without pitfalls. Bali is a rough place, as dangerous a place as you will ever encounter. What you don’t see in the glossy brochures is the rampant prostitution, the prevalence of AIDS, the bloody turf wars waged between local gangs and the drug- and alcohol-induced Western hooliganism. Tourists are robbed, raped and murdered and Westerners get into vicious fights amongst themselves and with Indonesians on a regular basis. In this extraordinary exposé, Australian author and Bali resident Malcolm Scott reveals the raw underbelly of Bali. He walks readers down Bali’s mean streets with honesty, humour and gritty realism and offers up a Bali choking with violent street fights, cheap sex and aggressive crime. Bali Raw is a must-read for anyone who has visited, or is thinking of travelling to, Indonesia’s Island of the Gods.

Dennis Nunqam Ndendemajem, the spectral social misfit of No Way To Die, having failed to die by suicide, is pursued by the hatred of friends and family relations. He seeks refuge in The Salvation Colony of the Angels of Limbo Church of Africa - a veritable paradise for all whom society has sidelined and whom chance or choice have led thereto. Refuge Dennis finds at the Salvation Colony, thanks to the kindly founding spiritual and material patron, the highly reputable but extremely devilish Pastor Sixtus Shrapnell, fondly referred to as Our Father. At the Colony, though completely dehumanized, Dennis maintains self-value and something to live for in life - God. In dispensing so completely and successfully with any authorial presence in this extremely rare but deeply psychological novel, Asong pushes the art of African fiction to a great new height. The novel shows his intellectual and perhaps formal vortex. His iridescent flushes of exquisite know-how in art, philosophy and psychology make the work worth a thinker's time.
