Click here to read reviewer Luan Gaines' take on Bangkok Haunts.
Bangkok Haunts is a deliciously decadent slide into the seamy world of snuff films, and the sensual side of post-erotic dreams of past loves despite being involved in a new loving relationship. Throw in a monk of dubious character and the perennial pain-in-the-butt police captain Vikorn, and you have yet another surefire bestseller in the Bangkok series by John Burdett.
Be warned: take a deep breath before beginning this book, because the plot and pacing grab hold and never let go. I suggest foregoing drinking any beverages as you read so that you won’t be interrupted by an annoying call of nature.
The characters are beautifully developed and believable to the point that you feel a vested interest in the outcome of the novel. Burdett’s ability to immerse the reader in a completely different society is without parallel; you will indeed be transported by this read. The ending leaves you gasping for breath with its artful and quite unexpected twist.
If you love the "Bangkok" series, mysteries, or just great writing, you will adore Bangkok Haunts for its artful amalgamation of all of the above.
