Bangkok Tattoo by John Burdett

What an interesting story this book was “farang”.
Thai police detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep talks to the reader as he investigates the murder of a CIA agent. In this book you are shown a different point of view of what is known as the seedy side of Thailand. Prostitutes, lady boys and all the associated businesses are explained and the reader gets to see them in a different light. I always enjoy reading books when the reader is taken a step closer to the local culture than the TV documentaries allow.
Anyway, I recommend this book as a very interesting read as well as a very compelling story.
