The murder of a foreigner in Thailand kicks off this crime thriller, the first in the Shamus Award–winning series by “a terrific writer” (T. Jefferson Parker). A farang is dead, and the Bangkok police have a confession the next morning from a young paint-thinner addict. He claims he killed Ben Hoadly, an expat Brit—but American PI Vincent Calvino has his doubts when he sees heavy bruises on the kid’s face. In no time Calvino is working both sides, out to find the killer for Hoadly’s wealthy father, and eager to clear the addict’s name for a beautiful friend who runs a charity in the slums. With the help of his best friend, Pratt, a Shakespeare-quoting Thai police colonel, and his loyal assistant, Ratana, Calvino plunges into the dangerous world of addicts, dealers, fortune tellers, inexpensive hit men, oversexed foreigners, and professional bar girls . . . “Intelligent and articulate, Moore offers a rich, passionate, and original take on the private eye game” in this international bestseller (January Magazine).
Bob spoke to the bespectacled youth more than to the old man, because he was
more likely to remember the words, being both better at English and relatively
sober. “The bargain is this. I shall pay your current debt to the money lender.

This is the story of two people, one skilled in technology but out of his depth socially in an exotic location; the other uneducated but resourceful and patient when fate is cruel. They are not epic hero and flawless lady but Bob finds courage to make an alliance with the hill men and fight the local mafia when his project is threatened and he is honourable enough to feel remorse and try to make amends when he misuses a poor local girl. It is about the building of a bridge linking two banks of a river, and about the building of a loving relationship between people from different cultures, with the help of sometimes mischievous spirits, but the final result is dictated by the vengeful nature of the birds.

This book is for EVERYONE - all Our Lady''s children, Catholic and non-Catholic. If you have not heard about Medjugorje, it will tell you everything you need to know.
Author: June Klins
Publisher: Author House
In 1981 a beautiful lady appeared to 6 young people in the village of Medjugorje in what is now Bosnia-Herzegovina. She told them that She was the Blessed Virgin Mary, the “Queen of Peace,” and that She came with a message of peace –peace with God and man. “I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is the fullness of life, and to enjoy the fullness and obtain peace, you must return to God.” Our Lady has continued to appear since 1981 to give messages to the world of peace, love and joy. She is confiding ten secrets to each visionary (some are chastisements for the world) and promises to leave a visible sign at the place of the apparitions in Medjugorje for all humanity. Today, all but three of the visionaries have daily apparitions. This time, this period of grace, is for conversion and deepening faith. After the visible sign, those living will have little time for conversion. Many books have been written about Medjugorje, but this one is different. It includes not only information about Medjugorje and talks and interviews with the visionaries, but also heartfelt testimonies of those who have been healed and changed through Medjugorje, as well as advice, written from the heart, on how to live the messages. This book is for EVERYONE - all Our Lady''s children, Catholic and non-Catholic. If you have not heard about Medjugorje, it will tell you everything you need to know. If you have been following the messages of Medjugorje or have been one of the millions of people blessed to have been there, this book will “light your fire” all over again.
