Reviews

"Addictive and fun. . . . A finely detailed simulacrum of a city redolent with sex and spice."
--Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

"An intelligent, high-octane psychological thriller from a master storyteller at the top of his game."
--New York Journal of Books

"Delightfully eccentric and unpredictable. . . . Sonchai is a terrific character: [a] wise, cheeky guide through Bangkok's baffling but fascinating mix of cultures."
--The Seattle Times "Chilling and prophetic. . . . Burdett's descriptions of the ins and outs of Bangkok, geographically and culturally, and the cast of exotic characters is just as riveting as the story. . . . This is not your daddy's--or even your older sibling's--police procedural." --Bookreporter

"Vastly entertaining. . . . Featuring sardonic insight into both Thai and Western culture aplenty and plots which refuse to play by detective story rules, Burdett maneuvers us behind the eyes of Detective Jitpleecheep through Thailand's City of Angels in all its durian-scented, haze-choked wonder." --Electric Literature

"Burdett's fever-dream mysteries, set in Bangkok, recast the police procedural as psychedelic peep show. . . . written with such louche authority that, by the end, one cheers the seemingly infinite multiplicity of Burdett's universe."
--The New Yorker

"Compelling. . . . The ever-appealing Sonchai, whose many-sided personality holds kaleidoscopic fascination, [will] keep series fans in thrall."
--Booklist

"John Burdett is writing the most exciting set of crime novels in the world."
--The Oregonian "The action is pretty much nonstop, and the characters continue to grow in complexity with each passing book. This is another atmospheric and suspenseful installment in one of the finest contemporary mystery series."
--BookPage "Wild and entertaining. . . . Comes together for a dramatic and satisfying ending."
--Publishers Weekly
