    Hi All,

    I started reading this book today and I'm hooked on it. It is a mystery book involving a luu-klung(sp?) (half western/half thai) detective and it's neat since it revolves around Bangkok and the author does a good job reflecting on Thai culture. It's also humorous and moves at a quick pace. Maybe it's somewhat similar to the Stephen Leather books, but not as much XXX material.

    I liked that one too. The detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep is a " leuk krung". I also enjoyed "Bangkok Tattoo' with the same character.
