Publisher's Summary

A high-octane thriller with a heart-stopping conclusion about a mysterious American woman who disappears into the Cambodian underworld, and the photojournalist who tracks her through the clues left in her diary.
Phnom Penh, Cambodia: The end of the line. Lawless, drug-soaked, forgotten - it's where bad journalists go to die. For once-great war photographer Will Keller, that's kind of a mission statement: he spends his days floating from one score to the next, taking any job that pays; his nights are a haze of sex, drugs, booze, and brawling. But Will's spiral toward oblivion is interrupted by Kara Saito, a beautiful young woman who shows up and begs Will to help find her sister, June, who disappeared during a stint as an intern at the local paper.
There's a world of bad things June could have gotten mixed up in. The Phnom Penh underworld is in an uproar after a huge drug bust; a local reporter has been murdered in a political hit; and the government and opposition are locked in a standoff that could throw the country into chaos at any moment. Will's best clue is June's diary: an unsettling collection of experiences, memories, and dreams, reflecting a young woman at once repelled and fascinated by the chaos of Cambodia. As Will digs deeper into June's past, he uncovers one disturbing fact after another about the missing girl and her bloody family history. In the end, the most dangerous thing in Cambodia may be June herself.
Propulsive, electric, and filled with unforgettable characters, Cambodia Noir marks the arrival of a fresh new talent. Nick Seeley is an ambitious, wildly imaginative author and his enthralling debut explores what happens when we venture into dark places...when we get in over our heads...and when we get lost.

Much better than expected

I was chary of this book because the author (and a female voice) narrated the book. It sounds like someone publishing their own book in a vanity press.

I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the author is a better narrator than he is an author! He's very good at both, but his narration was so effective that I found myself overlooking lapses in continuity and story credibility. It was just a very good (audio) read!

Read it. You'll like it.

Depressing monolog

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I thought I might because the reviews were good. I listen to many books a month - mostly psychological thrillers, suspense & mysteries. This was awful,- although I stuck with it to the very disappointing conclusion.

What was most disappointing about Nick Seeley’s story?

It paralleled a slow decent into hell.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

They both spoke in a monotone.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment,

Any additional comments?

Vietnam's worst and darkest dreams ... sort of like the the underworld of Russia.
