Bangkok Eight

(2002)
(The first book in the Sonchai Jitpleecheep series)
A novel by

 
 
When a U.S. Marine is killed in Bangkok, the task of finding the murderer falls to Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep, seemingly the only member of the Royal Thai Police Force whose idea of justice excludes the habitual bribe-taking practised by his fellow officers. This assignment is especially important to the devout detective because during the investigation of the murder scene, the snakes that bit the marine also kill Sonchai's police partner, best friend and Buddhist soul-mate Pichai. Sonchai's pursuit of revenge will team him with a frustrated FBI agent and leave them at the mercy of drug-fuelled motorcycle-taxi drivers as they hurtle through neon-lit Bangkok.
