Carl Hiaasen

One of the most startling and provocative mysteries I’ve read in years. The characters are marvelously unique, the setting intoxicating, and the plot unwinds in dark illusory strands.


The Observer

A cracking East meets West thriller introducing a half-Thai, half-American cop whose Buddhist beliefs are as important as his forensic skills. Terrific.


Jeffery Deaver

A stunning thriller! Bangkok 8 is suspense at its best: a masterfully written tale set in a world that’s perfectly evoked and populated with compelling, flesh-and-blood characters.


Daily Mirror

Impeccably researched … sometimes poetic, often exotic, and totally hardcore.


The Washington Post Book World

John Burdett is purely and simply a wonderful writer … Bangkok 8 is a tour de force.
