Bangkok Haunts -- another great read

Thanks for whoever let us know this was out. John Burdett really knows how to write and really knows how to capture bankok, buddhism, thai culture -- and manages to make the very very ugly compelling and compassionate. But if you have not read his prior books (Bangkok 8 and bangkok Tattoo) start with them.

I'm currently listening to Bangkok 8 in my car and I LOVE it! He really does have a great grasp of Bangkok and Thai culture. I find myself smiling the whole time I'm listening. Looking forward to the others...

Thanks, Gloria - I'm picking it up tomorrow. The first two books were great.

Bangkok Haunts is very good. Not quite as good as Bangkok 8, but better than Bangkok Tattoo. Collectively the books are wonderful.
