Sonchai Jitpleecheep; 0.9 x 7.9 x 5.2 Inches; 318 pages
A thriller with attitude to spare, Bangkok 8 is a sexy, razor-edged, often darkly hilarious novel set in one of the world' s most exotic cities.
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.
