Reviews

"Burdett's fever-dream mysteries recast the police procedural as psychedelic peep show."--The New Yorker

"John Burdett is writing the most exciting set of crime novels in the world."--The Oregonian

"Godfather is written with Burdett's characteristic zest, serving up pungent slices of Bangkok's bazaars and waterways."--The Boston Globe

"A Thai tale of corruption, mayhem and intrigue."--San Francisco Chronicle

"It is the mordant wit of his exhaustively observant 'monk manqué' hero that fuels this blissful and dexterous book."--Houston Chronicle

"This is a novel brimming with observations and arguments, with absurdity and jokes . . . Witty, learned, and wild."--The Washington Post Book World

"The spiciest yet of Burdett's exotic dishes."--The Times (London)

"Burdett's latest mystery is delightfully ambiguous, like life itself."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Block out several hours to read it in one sitting. Once you start, you won't get anything else done until you finish it."--Bookpage (Mystery of the Month)

"A dizzying array of multifaceted storylines. . . . Burdett juggles the various plots with great dexterity . . . A whirlwind of a novel."--Booklist (starred)

"A blissfully nutty caper that brings back fond memories of the late lamented Ross Thomas's crazy-quilt crime fiction . . . Distinguishing crooks from good guys is only one of the pleasures [here] . . . Sonchai's wry narrative voice (think: exotic Philip Marlowe) keeps us hooked."--Kirkus Reviews (starred)
