Bangkok Haunts

Bangkok Haunts by John Burdett

Royal Thai police detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep, haunted in his dreams by a woman who once cruelly broke his heart, is charged with solving her gruesome murder, which was captured on high-quality video.

In this, the third novel in Burdett's Bangkok series, once again the author interweaves corruption and cruelty with Buddhist spirituality. The result is a dark, yet satisfying read. But fans of the series will enjoy this latest episode in the life of the only Bangkok police officer who doesn't take bribes.

Fans of James Ellroy may enjoy Burdett's brand of noire, particulary this title, which shares some elements with The Black Dahlia.
