When Danny Canyon was forced to flee Glasgow in a hurry, he had no idea he'd land in a Melbourne meat-works. Not that he would marry a beautiful Vietnamese refugee who would carry him off to run a bar in steamy Saigon. Nor that he would have to enlist his brother to help deal with the frighteningly business-like local Mafia. But that's how it turned out.

Saigon Tea is all about brotherly love, Francis Ford Coppola, Australian small-goods, Mexican beer, Vietnamese bar girls who aren't quite what they seem and drinking vodka in the afternoon
