John Quote: "John Stanford never uses violence. He doesn't shoot guns, punch people or drive fast cars. He's an intellect ... and a bit quirky. Stanford is an Anglo-Australian who has spent many years living in Singapore and he speaks about seven Asian languages. Thats the reason he is a successful private eye - he's cross cultural."
