YimSiam Posted February 4, 2015 Report Share Posted February 4, 2015 Vulture Peak - I think the latest in the John Burdett Bangkok 8 series. I really enjoyed and was impressed by the first book, a great blend of culture clash, humor, Bangkok, and a little bit of thriller or detective mystery - whatever you call the genre. The plots are weak, ridiculous, formulaic - just excuses for putting down the various ruminations, cultural comments, and insights into the Bangkok/farang vortex, etc - but worth it, no matter whether the plot fails to grip. The first, highly recommended - and decreasingly so afterwards, as the series lingers on. Not a lot of new stuff in this one, but hey, that's the case with all these series, generally. At least this author deals with topics I really love, in an informed, funny - if ludicrous at times - way. YimSiam Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
