The fifth Bangkok novel featuring Royal Thai Police Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep, the former Buddhist monk.
John Burdett was brought up in North London and worked as a lawyer in Hong Kong. To date he has published seven novels, including the Bangkok series: Bangkok 8, Bangkok Tattoo, Bangkok Haunts, The Godfather of Kathmandu, and Vulture Peak.
Supremely atmospheric and deeply cynical, Burdett has created Pacific noir in a way that would make Raymond Chandler smile...Don't miss them. Daily Mail Hallucinatory... Not for the faint of heart ... a classic head trip The New York Times Book Review Redolent-in the most enjoyable way-of crime, violence, corruption and sex, not necessarily in that order. Vulture Peak upholds the high standards set by its predecessors. The Washington Post Time and again, John Burdett breaks the crime-thriller mold. And then reassembles it, piece by piece. His narrative becomes more than the sum of its parts... Thoroughly enjoyable. New York Journal of Books
