Burdett has become well known for his Bangkok police books. "Thirst" treads different territory. In short, it seems Mr. Thirst has gotten himself killed. There is a woman involved, and passionate sex. And a bit of mystery. No Buddhists.
"Thirst" is well constructed, well written, funny, sexy, sophisticated and quite interesting as a object lesson to those who have read Burdett's later work. One never knows where an author's muse might stray to. Or where it has been.
