    Hardcover Õ Bangkok 8 PDF/EPUB ê bangkok download, Bangkok 8 PDFHERE COME THE THAILAND BOOKS I read all the books in this series while I was in Thailand and besides the last one I LOVED them There's nothing better than being in a foreign country and reading a book SET in that country to live the flavor of both worlds fully This is a mystery series starring a Buddhist cop who is half whitehalf thai the son of a Thai prostitute The cast is full of dirty and corrupt people you kind of fall in love with It's violent and graphic and edgy and just really really funThe first book has a great mystery with a HUGELY crazy payoff a specialty of this author as you get into the series and it's a page turner so be warned It definitely starts out slow and there are long parts of Buddhist philosophy that might make the average mystery reader impatient but that's kind of WHY I liked it I thought about things I'd never t

    Hardcover Õ Bangkok 8 PDF/EPUB ê bangkok download, Bangkok 8 PDF Bangkok 8 reads like the bastard offspring of a yaa baa fueled brainstorming session between James Ellroy El Leonard and a Buddhist monk gathered around a manual typewriter in a South Asian bar with slowly rotating ceiling fans in the late afternoon about four hours before the impossibly beautiful whores who may or may not be women come out for karaoke and transaction Also any book that features a male Thai Buddhist cop drunk and pole dancing to Tina Turner’s “Simply the Best” within the first thirty pages gets my vote no uestionThe novel blends an intricate investigation of the murder by python and cobra of an American serviceman and a Thai policeman although the killers were aiming only for the former victim with detailed descriptions of a culture I can’t begin to comprehend

    Hardcover Õ Bangkok 8 PDF/EPUB ê bangkok download, Bangkok 8 PDFThis was one wild ride of a book with non stop action suspense from the first page and lots of twists to keep one guessing One moment profane the next reverent; one moment vicious and the next tender it is graphic without being pornographic and violent without being gratuitous The protagonist is one of the best characters I have encountered in a long time And if the buzzwords snakes jade sex spice revenge and dark humor don’t grab your attention I’m not sure what will This was a adrenaline fueled escape that was well worth the time

    Hardcover Õ Bangkok 8 PDF/EPUB ê bangkok download, Bangkok 8 PDFContains spoilersI couldn't take seriously for a second this book and its only honest cop wherever cliche I lived in Bangkok for 3 years and Burdett's perceptions of Bangkok and the Thais are facile and sneering laced with cultural chauvinism the two often seem to go hand in hand with caricatures rather than characters littering this book Through the mouth of his protagonist Burdett expresses pretentious opinions and thoughts you're likely to find in a pub in Liverpool than on the streets of Bangkok And when Burdett's protagnoist is not smoking pot obsessing about clothes doing the dirty work for his police chiefgangster boss and subseuently becoming a part time pimp for his mother when she opens a br
