American travel writer Poke Rafferty was good at looking for trouble-so good that he made a little money writing a few offbeat travel guides for the young and terminally bored. But that was before Bangkok stole his heart. Now the expat American is happily playing family with his fiancée Rose, a former go-go dancer, and Miaow, the wary street child he adopts. Yet just when everything is beginning to work out, trouble comes looking for Poke in the guise of good intentions. Gradually he realizes that he's been gliding across the surface of a culture he really doesn't understand-and that what he doesn't know is about to hurt him and everyone he loves. Getting them all out alive will take every skill Poke has.

Bangkok 8

By John Burdett

New York: Vintage Books. 2004. Trade Paperback. As New. Not a remainder. 6th printing. 318 pp. The first book in the Sonchai Jitpleecheep series. Witnessed by a throng of gaping spectators, a charismatic Marine sergeant is murdered under a Bangkok bridge inside a bolted-shut Mercedes Benz. Among the witnesses are the only two cops in the city not on the take, but within moments one is murdered and his partner, Sonchai Jitpleecheep-a devout Buddhist and the son of a Thai bar girl and a long-gone Vietnam War G.I.-is hell-bent on wreaking revenge. On a vigilante mission to capture his partner's murderer, Sonchai is begrudgingly paired with a beautiful FBI agent named Jones and captures her heart in the process. In a city fueled by illicit drugs and infinite corruption, prostitution and priceless art, Sonchai's quest for vengeance takes him into a world much more sinister than he could have ever imagined.
