Sonchai Jitpleecheep, the devout Buddhist Royal Thai Police detective who led us through the best sellers Bangkok 8 and Bangkok Tattoo, returns in this blistering novel.Sonchai has seen virtually everything on his beat in Bangkok's District 8, but nothing like the snuff film he's just been sent anonymously. Furiously fast-paced and laced through with an erotic ghost story that gives a new dark twist to the life of our hero, Bangkok Haunts more than lives up to the smart and darkly funny originality of its predecessors.

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. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Sonchai Jitpleecheep—John Burdett’s inimitable Royal Thai Police detective with the hard-bitten demeanor and the Buddhist soul—is summoned to the most shocking and intriguing crime scene of his career. Solving the murder could mean a promotion, but Sonchai, reeling from a personal tragedy, is more interested in Tietsin, an exiled Tibetan lama based in Kathmandu who has become his guru. There are, however, obstacles in Sonchai’s path to nirvana. Police Colonel Vikorn has just named Sonchai his consigliere (he’s been studying The Godfather on DVD): to troubleshoot, babysit, defuse, procure, reconnoiter—do whatever needs to be done in Vikorn’s ongoing battle with Army General Zinna for control of Bangkok’s network of illegal enterprises. And though Tietsin is enlightened and (eerily) charismatic, he also has forty million dollars’ worth of heroin for sale. If Sonchai truly wants to be an initiate into Tietsin’s “apocalyptic Buddhism,” he has to pull off a deal that will bring Vikorn and Zinna to the same side of the table. Further complicating the challenge is Tara: a Tantric practitioner who captivates Sonchai with her remarkable otherworldly techniques. Here is Sonchai put to the extreme test—as a cop, as a Buddhist, as an impossibly earthbound man—in John Burdett’s most wildly inventive, darkly comic, and wickedly entertaining novel yet. From the Hardcover edition.

To make matters worse, the apparent culprit is sweet-natured Chanya, the brothel’s top earner and a woman whom the devoutly Buddhist sleuth has loved for several lifetimes. How can Sonchai solve this crime without sending Chanya to prison? How can he engage in a cover-up without endangering his karma? And how will he ever get to the bottom of a case whose interested parties include American spooks, Muslim fundamentalists, and gangsters from three countries?

Nobody knows Bangkok like Royal Thai Police Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep, and there is no one quite like Sonchai: a police officer who has kept his Buddhist soul intact—more or less—despite the fact that his job shoves him face-to-face with some of the most vile and outrageous crimes and criminals in Bangkok. But for his newest assignment, everything he knows about his city—and himself—will be a mere starting point. He’s put in charge of the highest-profile criminal case in Thailand—an attempt to bring an end to trafficking in human organs. He sets in motion a massive sting operation and stays at its center, traveling to Phuket, Hong Kong, Dubai, Shanghai, and Monte Carlo. He draws in a host of unwitting players that includes an aging rock star wearing out his second liver and the mysterious, diabolical, albeit gorgeous co-queenpins of the international body-parts trade: the Chinese twins known as the Vultures. And yet, it’s closer to home that Sonchai will discover things getting really dicey: rumors will reach him suggesting that his ex-prostitute wife, Chanya, is having an affair. Will Sonchai be enlightened enough—forget Buddha, think jealous husband—to cope with his very own compromised and compromising world? All will be revealed here, in John Burdett’s most mordantly funny, propulsive, fiendishly entertaining novel yet.

From former British barrister John Burdett comes a psychosexual novel in the tradition of Damage and Presumed Innocent. At the heart of A Personal History of Thirst is an ill-fated love triangle where all hunger for something and are willing to risk everything to get it, blurring th eboundaries between right and wrong and love and hate to do so. Thirst tells a gripping tale of murder,r evenge, infidelity, ambition, and deception that keeps shocking until the stunning courtroom climax. Ambitious London lawyer James Knight, a propserous solciitor, has denied his lower-class background and carefully molded his publci image in order to climb the social and professional ladder of the British legal system. He will soon "take silk"—become a Queen's counsel barrister, the highest rank a alwyer can obtain. More than decade earlier, however, James had lived on the fringe of acceptable society and rigid British ethics during his years at university, experimenting with sex and drugs in a passionate love affair with a stunning and brilliant American named Daisy Smith. James's life takes an unexpected turn early in his career when he meets a client—an accused thief named Oliver Thirst—for a drink and a chat in a pub. Although they could not be more different, James is drawn to Thirst's high intelligence and wit. Soon their illicit friendship develops into a dark and erotic ménage á trois with Daisy at the center. Now, eleven years later, one is dead and two are suspected of murder. The murder investigation at the center of this impossible-to-put-down novel uncovers the bizarre love story between the barrister, the American, and the thief. And, in the end, A Personal History of Thirst answers the question: What happens when genuine love becomes mixed with perverse obsession?

Winner of the Ned Kelly Award for Crime Fiction (Australia) Joe Cashin was different once. He moved easily then. He was surer and less thoughtful. But there are consequences when you’ve come so close to dying. For Cashin, they included a posting away from the world of Homicide to the quiet place on the coast where he grew up. Now all he has to do is play the country cop and walk the dogs. And sometimes think about how he was before. Then prominent local Charles Bourgoyne is beaten and left for dead. Everything seems to point to three boys from the nearby Aboriginal community; everyone seems to want it to. But Cashin is unconvinced. And as tragedy unfolds relentlessly into tragedy, he finds himself holding onto something that might be better let go.

"Wanna stand in the face of a charging elephant, get hit by a motorcycle, eat giant water bugs, blowtorch your mouth on some of the hottest chili peppers on earth, then go watch a sex change operation? Of course you don't, but, happily, Jerry Hopkins has done all that and more—lots more—in this darkly humorous, deeply affectionate, clear-eyed but never patronizing portrait of Thailand, his adopted home. Highly recommended." —Tim Cahill, author of Lost in My Own Backyard, Hold the Enlightenment and Jaguars Ripped My Flesh "After over a decade in the country, Hopkins knows and loves his subject dearly—that much is obvious—and his vivid portrait projects that love from every page." —Jann Wenner, editor and founder of Rolling Stone Magazine "A loving expose of everything that's wonderful about Thailand, and much that isn't. Should be required reading for all newcomers." —Joe Cummings, author of the Lonely Planet Thailand Guide Writer Jerry Hopkins came to Thailand for a visit in the 1980s, and ended up a permanent resident with a temporary visa—a big, white farang haunting the bars and back alleys of Bangkok. His essays explore the mystery and mayhem of "The Land of Smiles" to hilarious—and sometimes disturbing—effect. Travel with him to a place where whisky is rum, water buffaloes are gay, insects are dinner, dildos are lucky charms, and your wildest adolescent fantasies can come true (for a nominal fee).

Nell Walker, an L.A. executive who believed she had everything and learns she had nothing, finds herself boarding a bus rolling away from bitter loss toward a fiercely beautiful landscape, an impossible love affair, and a fight for the earth that brings her back to a past richer than anything she could have imagined. "Sojourner's writing is evocative, descriptive and lyrical…29 is a tantalizing read." —THE DURANGO HERALD "Sojourner seduces readers with shimmering visions of the West…At the same time, she forces us to face the weary but undeniable truth that we're butchering the place…Her palpable sorrow about the land permeates the novel, but it's relieved by a sense of humor and plenty of wisecracking dialogue." —HIGH COUNTRY NEWS "Sojourner's book crackles and bristles with all of the right tones. The author lived in Twentynine Palms and in the surrounding area, witnessing directly the work of tribes to stop the spread of solar–power installations and the invisibility that many native peoples endure. Her book sings with authenticity." —THE UTAH REVIEW "Like the leafy sea dragon that moves gracefully in and out of these pages, 29 by Mary Sojourner is equal parts real and ethereal and wholly entrancing." —FLAGSTAFF LIVE "[Sojourner] writes herself onto the page and bares all. Her characters personify past lovers and old friends, but ever apparent is the character of place." —ARIZONA DAILY SUN "…wry, surreal, and tender…29 reminded me that literature is an ecstatic conversation between reader and author…" —HIGH DESERT JOURNAL "Ever–ascending Sojourner cooks up wrenching sorrow and hilarious banter, environmental and moral conundrums, magnetizing characters, and a place of transcendent beauty in this intoxicating, provocative, and gloriously told desert tale of wildness and community, unexpected bonds and deep legacies, trauma and healing." —BOOKLIST (starred review) "This standout ecological novel from Arizona author Sojourner features picturesque prose, a vivid western setting, and sharply drawn characters." —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review) "Notable characters carry Sojourner's powerful story of our connection to the earth. A profoundly affecting novel." —LIBRARY JOURNAL "In Nell Walker, Mary Sojourner has created a character who discovers—in her own desperate way—the simple beauty in the interconnectedness of the natural world and the complexities we heap upon it. Written with passion and humor, 29 takes the reader on a journey of hope, humanity, and love." —JANA RICHMAN, author of Riding in the Shadows of Saints, The Last Cowgirl, and The Ordinary Truth "29 is at the intersection of a local road to Nowhere and an interstate to Everywhere. Certainly Mary's prose and storytelling is crystalline and lovely, a kind of geode broth, filled with light and piquancy." —DAVID KRANES, author of The Legend’s Daughter and The National Tree "A love letter to what we frequently deem unloveable, 29 is a wide–armed triumph of hope." —LARAINE HERRING, author of Ghost Swamp Blues and Writing Begins with the Breath "This is a story that will stay with the readers and, perhaps, bring them home to their own place, and the importance of fighting for what you love." —SUSAN LANG, author of the Mojave novels trilogy "The language is sharp as a butcher's blade, the dialogue rings true and hard, and the story cuts deeply into its reader." —H. LEE BARNES, author of Cold Deck, The Lucky, and Car Tag "Sojourner's new novel, much like the desert landscapes in which it is set, will never speak to those who see the Mojave as an annoying blur between L.A. and Vegas, but those adventurous enough (or lost enough) to wander off I–15 will find a world bursting with fragile beauty, tenacious life, and rock hard truth." —GILES CARWYN, author of Queen of Oblivion

He’s unplugged and living the dream at a new Texas Hill Country homestead, but Gunner Shake Davis never really expected that to last. When he gets a phone call asking him to undertake a lazy look-see mission to determine the root of at-sea oil rip offs in the Gulf of Thailand, Shake returns to some old haunts in Southeast Asia. It starts in Bangkok, moves to a sea cruise in a commandeered junk, and winds up on Koh Tang off the Cambodian coast. And that backwater little spit of sand haunts Shake’s memories from the days of the screwed-up Mayaguez rescue mission at the end of the Vietnam War. The bad guys on Koh Tang are oil pirates and just as deadly as the Khmer Rouge that nearly killed him back in 1975. A simple recon mission gets twisted, obscured, and altered—which brings Shake and his crew into a second Battle of Koh Tang Island.

Bangkok Boy is a heart-rending account of a childhood lost to sexual abuse. Chai was a normal boy until he was molested by a school teacher, an event which led him into the hidden world of male prostitution. His story is not only unique but also offers a shocking insight into the red-light districts of Bangkok and Pattaya. As his story unfolds you’ll become privy to the distorted logic which Chai used false justification for his horrible life choices for so long. But paradoxically, it was on the streets that Chai found redemption and decided to recount his dark past in order to move on in hope that, by sharing his story, his life would become something of a lesson to anyone. Beneath all the emotional torment and despair, lies a story of redemption and struggle to rebuild one’s life. Bangkok Boy is no ordinary book; it is a story of hope and triumph in the face of adversity.

A house in Bangkok is the confluence of lives shaped by upheaval, memory, and the lure of home. "Important, ambitious, and accomplished... Sudbanthad deftly sweeps us up in a tale that paints a twin portrait: of a megacity... and of a world where sanctuary is increasingly hard to come by." --Mohsin Hamid, New York Times bestselling author of Exit West A missionary doctor pines for his native New England even as he succumbs to the vibrant chaos of nineteenth-century Siam. A post-WWII society woman marries, mothers, and holds court, little suspecting her solitary future. A jazz pianist in the age of rock, haunted by his own ghosts, is summoned to appease the resident spirits. A young woman tries to outpace the long shadow of her political past. And in New Krungthep, savvy teenagers row tourists past landmarks of the drowned old city they themselves do not remember. Time collapses as these stories collide and converge, linked by the forces voraciously making and remaking the amphibious, ever-morphing capital itself.
