About the book:

From the author of the best seller Bangkok 8, a head-spinning new novel that puts us back in the company of the inimitable Royal Thai Police detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep.

We return to District 8the underbelly of Bangkoks underworldwhere a dramatically mutilated dead body is found. Its bad: he was CIA. It gets worse: the murderer appears to be Chanyaa tough, sweet working girl whos the highest earner at The Old Mans Club, jointly owned by Sonchais mother and his boss, Police Colonel Vikorn.

Alerted by Sonchai, Vikorn quickly concocts a cover-up that involves Al Qaeda and Thailands porous southern border where, since 9/11, the CIA has been an obviously covert presence. But the truth will be harder to come by, and it will require Sonchai to find an ever-more-delicate balance between his ambition and his Buddhism, while running the gamut of Bangkoks drug dealers, prostitutes, bad cops, worse military, and the pitfalls of his own melting heart (Chanya!)most of which he can handle. But even Sonchai is not prepared for what he discovers at the end of his investigation.

Piercingly smart and funny, densely atmospheric, andas we already know to expect from John Burdettpacking a surprise at every turn, Bangkok Tattoo is sensational.
