Publisher's Summary

In the nearly 20 years he has lived in Bangkok, Christopher G. Moore has written nine novels starring Vincent Calvino, a disbarred American lawyer working as a PI in the dark and steamy Thai capital. Internationally acclaimed, the prizewinning novels have been translated into 10 languages. Now Spirit House, the first novel in the series, is finally available in North America.
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 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.
Spirit House is a thrilling introduction to Vincent Calvino and Christopher G. Moore's Bangkok.

One of my favorites so far

This is a great story - now I must see Thailand for myself. Can't wait to read the next in the series

The Best

I have read several C. M. books and liked his quirky take on things but SPIRIT HOUSE is a cut above the others of his I’ve read. He knows Bangkok and is expert on the sleazy and the better off characters in that unique city. It is a top level detective noir and a tough hero with a heart of gold. What else could you ask for baby?
