The story is fast paced but as always what i enjoy most is the vivid descriptions of Bangkok and it ex pats! Having spent a lot of time in Thailand and having fallen m live with country i can feel i am there when reading thus.
I love his day to day life in Thailand and ,for me ,the actual story is almost secondary!
It is also fascinating to learn about the bar girls stiries for their point of view...brilliant book and should be read by all who know and live rhe land if smiles as i do
This writer obviously is sympatico with a wide variety of flawed human beings (his other wonderful series hero, Junior Bender, is a burglar by profession) and his compassionate outlook helps Rafferty draw out the best in most of the people he bumps into in Bangkok. But not all: his bad dudes and gals are really, really unpleasant!
And his role as father and protector of his wife and their adopted girl (now a teenager) often leaves Poke surprised if not dumbfounded at the depths of evil -- and sewage! -- into which humanity can sink. This latest Poke Rafferty is the best yet as he makes his way through an exotic underground where challenging a person's morality can easily lead to mayhem or murder. So far, Poke's sense of justice and his love for his family have been tested by some pretty gruesome bad guys and some quite unpleasant cops. But he also meets some bright lights, like a pretty transexual teenagers who has led the hardest of tough lives, who shine through the tawdry glitz of Bangkok's infamous red light districts.
I know you'll dig the Poke Rafferty "mysteries" as much as I do. Pick up "Fool's River," read it and then order the rest of the Poke Rafferty novels. And then check out Junior Bender! You'll be doing yourself a favor.
