Description
Vincent Calvino agrees to follow the "minor wife" of a Thai politician and report on her movements, in this tenth book in the Shamus Award–winning series. His client is Rick Casey, a shady American whose life has been darkened by the unsolved murder of his idealistic son. It seems to be a simple surveillance job, but soon Calvino is entangled in a dangerous web of political allegiance and a reckless quest for revenge. And, unknown to our man in Bangkok, a two-man sniper team awaits its shot from an anonymous tower in the center of the city—a shot that will change everything. Half Italian, half Jewish, Calvino left New York City as a disbarred lawyer to become a private investigator in Bangkok. Christopher Moore gives us gripping plots and fascinating characters in a hard-boiled style that brilliantly conveys the seamy underside of this exotic city and its more corrupt inhabitants.

"Moore creates a cast of vibrant characters worth of the best Elmore Leonard caper for this hard-edged, stylish mystery.... His Vincent Calvino is at once in the finest tradition of the lone private detective and a complete original."—Matt Beynon Rees
