Editorial Reviews


"Speed and murder aren't the only way to hold a reader's interest. Another is the employment of brisk writing and interesting characters. Jake Needham's Jack Shepherd novels fall into that category. The series has a first- person narrator who is cool, funny, and good company." -- Glenn Harper, 'International Noir Fiction'

"KILLING PLATO Is a fast-paced and intellectually stimulating trip through Thailand's spook culture. Needham has forged a powerfully sardonic portrayal of an business professor whose marriage is on the rocks and who is suddenly faced with an impossible series of choices, none of which is attractive."  - Thai Oasis

"Thrillers written with a wry sense of irony in the mean-streets, fast-car, tough-talk tradition of Elmore Leonard. Needham has found acclaim as one of the best-selling English-language writers in Asia." - The Edge (Singapore)

About the Author

JAKE NEEDHAM is an American screen and television writer who began writing legal and spy thrillers when he realized he didn't really like movies and television very much.

Mr. Needham has lived and worked in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand for nearly twenty-five years. He is a lawyer by education and has held a number of significant positions in both the public and private sectors where he took part in a lengthy list of international operations he has absolutely no intention of telling you anything about. He, his wife, and their two sons now divide their time between homes in Bangkok and New York.

You can learn more about Jake Needham at his official website:
