Meet the Author

Canadian Christopher G. Moore is the creator of the award-winning Vincent Calvino Private Eye series and the author of the Land of Smiles Trilogy. In his former life, he studied at Oxford University and taught law at the University of British Columbia. He wrote radio plays for the CBC and NHK before his first novel was published in New York in 1985, when he promptly left his tenured academic job for an uncertain writing career, leaving his colleagues thinking he was not quite right in the head. His journey from Canada to Thailand, his adopted home, included some time in Japan in the early 1980s and four years in New York in the 1980s. In 1988, he came to Thailand to harvest materials to write a book. The visit was meant to be temporary. Twenty-six years on and 25 novels, three anthologies, and six non-fiction titles. There are fifteen novels in the Vincent Calvino series. He lives Bangkok. His novels have so far been translated into Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Thai, Russian and Turkish. He is published by Heaven Lake Press in Thailand. Four of the Vincent Calvino titles: Spirit House, Asia Hand, The Risk of Infidelity Index, and Paying Back Jack were published by Grove/Atlantic in the United States, and Atlantic Books in the United Kingdom. His Vincent Calvino series has been optioned for a feature film.

    Smart, gritty detective novel. Good bad guys, good writing, great setting of Bangkok and the Gulf of Thailand. Part of the Vicent Calvino Crime Series, now up to thirteen in the series. The latest, Lost in Rangoon, my favorite but to each his own.

    This is my eighth Vincent Calvino novel, and the third in ten da

    This is my eighth Vincent Calvino novel, and the third in ten days. It is also one of my favorites. Fans of Calvino like the good-hearted PI who understands Thai and the Thai people, well, as well as any farang can. He seems to get into big scrapes that his friend the Thai Police Colonel Pratt often must help him with. They make a good team. In this one, Russians are more involved, and that is as it must be given the influx of Russian mafia into Thailand. What I liked is that author Christopher G. Moore takes the characters to New York for a good part of the novel without missing a beat. The facts of the story are not particularly relevant to a Calvino fan. It is the culture that the author introduces us too and the way it plays with the story. There is often a certain sleight of hand used to fool the reader into thinking things might add up to more than the sum of the parts. In this novel, a significant amount of information is revealed well into the novel. Sure, Calvino did not know it. But, given all of the things he does know, it was a stretch to think that this info got past him. And, are congratulations appropriate for Colonel Pratt? I can't say, but this novel does not end with him fighting gunshot wounds in a Bangkok hospital. That ending, from The Corruptionist, seems to have been forgotten.
