The story in this book is just as different from any other mystery as the other of the series. Very good plot, the characters are well worked out. Sonchai Jitpleecheep, the Thai Buddhist policeman is so interesting when combining his beliefs, work, and private life. This is no gentle book and delves in dark plots and humor. I have all the John Burdett previous books in the series and enjoyed the readers very much. The accents were perfect. I cannot say the same for Stephen Hogan. His accent is British, not Thai sounding at all. Also, it was difficult at times to tell which character was speaking. They should go back to the original reader, much more entertaining.

I agree with reviewers who complain the plotting isn't as tight as previous installments. However, this is more than made up for by the usual fascinating glimpses into foreign cultures, religions and ways of life Burdett brings so brilliantly to the page. Well worth the journey. Also, the narrator is top notch.
