Here's why I think this is a great read.
Stephen Leather is one of my favourite authors. I especially enjoy his Spider Shepherd mystery/espionage series. So while waiting for a plane from Bangkok to Lampang, last year, I was surprised to find he'd written a cautionary tale about the rather stupid, naive and arrogant Brit, named Pete, and his adventures with a go-go girl in Bangkok.
The book was actually scary in its implications. I passed it around to many of my buddies, and they agreed that a lonely (and/or stupid) guy could get into trouble, EASILY.
Leather uses a novel* writing technique in that each character narrates a separate set of chapters.
Unusual. Enlightening. Instructive. Well written.
Highly recommended for anyone visiting Thailand.
