Sonchai moonlights as part owner of a brothel run by his mother, whose frank philosophy has her say, "who we are in the next life is determined by how generous we are in this one, not by what market forces bend us to do." When Damrong worked in the brothel, she seduced Sonchai so thoroughly that he reached the point where his feelings for her switched from objective admiration to the psychosis of possession. She then unceremoniously dropped him. And now, years later, he's married with a child on the way, but the DVD containing the snuff film has been delivered to him and he is on the case. Damrong might be dead, but she's NOT gone. Very soon her ghost begins to visit his dreams, and every night, in his bed beside his sleeping wife, she has her way with him until he wakes, trembling and spent.
Bangkok Lights is all levels below delicious levels. The author's depictions of the activities of the undead are vivid and believable, and the Buddhist concept of Reincarnation is made to feel very real indeed. As the story progresses and each development reveals a bit more of Damrong's story, the reader becomes so immersed in the mysteries he forgets that he doesn't believe in ghosts, demons, or other lifes. I loved this one. Five Stars.
Art Tirrell is the author of The Secret Ever Keeps
That said, I am still enjoying the Jitpleecheep mysteries.

The book has a new interesting storyline that will tickle your fancy as they say and give you a very small insight into what may be thai, No I don't think so as thai are still trying to work that out themselves. And I have personally seen strange things in thailand that
I had no answer's too. ( lived and worked in thailand 23 years ago ). enjoy the book as a book of fiction and maybe travel to Issan
before it disappears like the water buffalo that are now not allowed into the new villages so are now a rare sight grazing at the side of the road, now replaced by Kubota tractors.
