Nobody knows Bangkok like Royal Thai Police Detective Sonchai
Jitpleecheep, and there is no one quite like Sonchai: a police officer who has
kept his Buddhist soul intact—more or less—despite the fact that his job shoves
him face-to-face with some of the most vile and outrageous criminals in
Bangkok. But for his newest assignment, everything he knows about his city—and
himself—will be a mere starting point.

Put in charge of the highest-profile criminal case in Thailand—an attempt to
bring an end to human-organ trafficking—he sets in motion a massive sting
operation and stays at its center, traveling to Phuket, Hong Kong, Dubai,
Shanghai, and Monte Carlo. He draws in a host of unwitting players that
includes an aging rock star wearing out his second liver and the mysterious,
diabolical—albeit gorgeous—co-queenpins of the international body-parts trade:
the Chinese twins known as the Vultures. And yet, it’s closer to home that
Sonchai will discover things getting really dicey. Rumors will reach him
suggesting that his ex-prostitute wife, Chanya, is having an affair. Will
Sonchai be enlightened enough—forget Buddha, think jealous husband—to cope with
his very own compromised and compromising world?
All will be revealed here, in John Burdett’s most mordantly funny, propulsive,
fiendishly entertaining novel yet.
