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.

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?
