Odd, random echoes

I finished reading Ghost Money by Andrew Nette last night and should get round to putting up a review tomorrow.  Although the story was very different to Robert Ryan's The Last Sunrise (which I reviewed on Monday), it also had a couple of odd echoes.  Both were set in South East Asia (Cambodia and Burma/Southern China respectfully) and both involved the hunt for two million dollars worth of gold lost from a US military plane.  Pure coincidence in the plot hook (there is nothing else in common between them in terms of plot or how the story is told) and that I read them back to back, but nonetheless oddly unsettling.  I'm now onto US Mid-West noir set between the end of the Second World War and the 1960s - Donald Ray Pollack's The Devil All the Time.
