Reviews of Bangkok Tattoo

Overall customer rating: 3.334

Excellent crime novel

by Featherstone on Sep 6, 2008

Beautifully crafted! A page turner from the start, I dare you to put it down.


Great mystery writing, farang

by misterpickle93 on Jul 9, 2007

Burdett's second (and, in my opinion, even better) Bangkok mystery finds Sonchai Jitpleecheep of the Royal Thai Police knee-deep in a string of grisly murders apparently involving Chanya, a beautiful prostitute for whom he secretly pines. Surrounded by all manner of vice, perversion and corruption (embodied by the hilarious Colonel Vikorn), Sonchai carries on with Buddhist equanimity. Yes, Burdett does plumb the dark side of the human psyche and the plot gets pretty preposterous, but this is five-star fun nonetheless.
