BANGKOK TATTOO - JOHN BURDETT

This book is John Burdett's follow-up to Bangkok 8. 

Royal Thai police detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep is called in to investigate a murder.  It is not just any murder but turns out to be the body of a member of the CIA.  The main suspect is Chanya, a bar girl who works at the Old Man's Club which is owned by both Sonchai's mother and his boss, Police Colonel Vikorn.  As Sonchai's mother states "killing customers is not good for business". 

As a result, Vikorn contrives a cover-up that you would not believe.  It involves the Al Queda and Thailand's southern border. 

Sonchai doesn't realize what he is in for as he begins his investigation.  This murder is much more complicated then anyone thought it to be.

Is Sonchai successful at solving this murder?

John Burdett has done an excellent job of creating a novel that is exciting, fast paced and filled with unique characters.  The author is known for many surprises, twists and turns and this book is no exception.  This is a great follow-up to Bangkok 8 and one that you will enjoy.  Be sure to add it to your reading list.
