Bangkok really burns,
This review is from: Bangkok Burn (Bangkok Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
A red-hot thriller set against the exotic backdrop of Bangkok, this is a blistering read from start to finish. The hero, or maybe anti-hero, is Chance, a farang (foreigner) and an orphan who was raised by a Bangkok mafia family. Though he wants out of a life of crime to keep the love of his life, Pim, that proves difficult when he is variously double-crossed, blown up, shot at and dropped off cliffs.
Meanwhile, a war is taking place in the streets of Bangkok as political cliques fire bullets and rockets at each other. The real culture and current affairs of the country are every bit as vital to this novel as the characters, and as vibrant and challenging as the plot.
Written by a man who clearly has an intimate knowledge of Bangkok, from its elite down to its underbelly, you will wonder how much of Chance's story is true. You'll also sweat every heart-stopping moment with him, every heart-breaking revelation, every shock and wound incurred by his attempts to save his family and discover the astonishing truth.
