Reviews

"Hallucinatory. . . . Not for the faint of heart . . . a classic head trip."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Redolent--in the most enjoyable way--of crime, violence, corruption and sex, not necessarily in that order. Vulture Peak upholds the high standards set by its predecessors."
--The Washington Post

"Fine entertainment, with bite, from an author at home in many different worlds."
--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Time and again, John Burdett breaks the crime-thriller mold. And then reassembles it, piece by piece. His narrative becomes more than the sum of its parts. . . . Thoroughly enjoyable."
--New York Journal of Books

"If you have never read John Burdett, the perfect place to start would be Vulture Peak."
--Book Reporter

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

"What keeps the book buoyant is the observations of the hero, a Thai police detective obsessed with karma."
--The New Yorker

"You might find yourself addicted to Burdett's sizzling prose."
--San Antonio Express News

"Intricate and . . . engaging."
--Newark Star Ledger

"Fresh, humorous, and full of insights into Thailand."
--Publishers Weekly
