Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep of the Royal Thai Police returns in his riveting and smokily atmospheric new thriller.

A farang—a foreigner—has been murdered, his body horribly mutilated, at the Bangkok brothel co-owned by Sonchai’s mother and his boss. The dead man was a CIA agent. To make matters worse, the apparent culprit is sweet-natured Chanya, the brothel’s top earner and a woman whom the devoutly Buddhist sleuth has loved for several lifetimes.

How can Sonchai solve this crime without sending Chanya to prison? How can he engage in a cover-up without endangering his karma? And how will he ever get to the bottom of a case whose interested parties include American spooks, Muslim fundamentalists, and gangsters from three countries?

As addictive as opium, as hot as Sriracha chili sauce, and bursting with surprises, Bangkok Tattoo will leave its mark on you.

    " Ditto to what I said about the first in the series. Maybe this didn't seem as exotic because the news had worn off. I still liked it a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Josh Fish | 2/14/2014

    " Imaginative story and a page turner. It really shows the difference between Thai and American cultures and to some extent between the East and the West. "

    " The second in John Burdett's excellent Thai police procedural series, this does not suffer from sophomore slump. Burdett continues to round out his characters, their backstories and their relationships with one another, while advancing a deliciously gory plot involving a blood-soaked prostitute, dead CIA agents, a war between a police chief and a general, and a yakuza tattoo artist. "
