Show synopsis Introducing Vincent Calvino, disbarred American lawyer turned Bangkok PI...Christopher Moore's series of internationally acclaimed, prize-winning Calvino novels are finally published in the UK.When his surveillance of a major Thai drug piracy ring finally produces definitive video evidence, it looks as though Vincent Calvino's fortunes are about to turn.But when the client dies of a heart attack and Calvino finds the body of a murdered massage girl downstairs, the authorities become suspicious of the farang who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. To make matters worse, with the dead man unable to pay, Calvino is desperate and forced to take on a job he doesn't want. Calvino's new clients are three expat housewives who want him to trail their spouses. Unfortunately for Calvino, jealous wives are likely to remain unhappy, regardless of his findings, while drug pirates aren't the type to play nice.Featuring a brilliantly realised cast of characters, including a wealthy Thai celebrity protected by his political connections, a lawyer with a photographic memory, a Shakespeare-quoting police colonel and Calvino's loyal assistant Rattana, and set in a superbly textured, wonderfully observed Bangkok, "The Risk of Infidelity Index" is a page-turner, and the UK debut of a major name in international crime fiction.
