    On Easter Day, 1967, American businessman and founder of the modern Thai silk industry, James H.W. Thompson disappeared while supposedly on a stroll in the jungle-clad Cameron Highlands, central Malaysia.The circumstances were unusual, and led to a massive search and investigation. Neither Jim Thompson nor his remains have ever been found …Jim Thompson was already a legend in Southeast Asia. Some twenty years earlier, in middle age, he had abandoned his former life to embark on an exotic business career, establishing the Jim Thompson Thai Silk Company. With his fortune he built a house and art collection which are among Bangkok's top tourist attractions today.After he vanished, Jim Thompson became the subject of a second legend, a mystery that has never been solved. The facts were first recounted by William Warren in 1970 on his book The Legendary American. Today, many people in Thompson's circle are no longer living. Now the author, who knew Thompson well, is able to write more freely. This revised edition contains new material on Thompson's private life and his alleged role as a CIA agent, drawn from interviews with people close to the events. The result is the definitive account of a true-life mystery of international proportions.
