Jungle-skilled, silent and lethal, he had killed for the Viet Cong and then for the Americans. He had watched helpless when his two eldest daughters had been raped and killed by Thai pirates. Now all that was behind him. Quiet, hard-working and unassuming, he was building up his South London take-away business. Until the day his wife and youngest daughter were destroyed by an IRA bomb in a Knightsbridge department store. Then, simply but persistently, he began to ask the authorities who were the men responsible, what was being done. And was turned away, fobbed off, treated as a nuisance. Which was when the Chinaman, denied justice, decided on revenge and went back to war.

What goes around, comes around. The Foreigner (a.k.a. The Chinaman) serves up a panorama of jingoistic goonery, thriving in a cul-de-sac of religion, ethno-political tribalism, and egocentric demagoguery. Plus, of course, greed. In essence, same monkeys, different trees through the ages, profiling mankind to a T.
