More About This Book

Overview

"From Thailand With Love" is a hard-hitting, street-tough novel about the trafficking of adolescent Asian girls for prostitution in the U. S. The novel is serialized into two books. Book One is "I am Djin Djin" and Book Two is "A Long Night's Journey Into Daylight".

But that's certainly not the whole story.

The book portrays a whole range of characters and lifestyles, from the innocent well-meaning Christian right to the urbane worldly-wise citizens of New York to the ruthless high-rollers of international organized crime, sharply contrasting these exemplars of affluent modern America with the harsh realities of life in the Third World, where children are bought and sold like cattle.

The story is centered in Brooklyn and Manhattan but ranges over several locations, including Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia and Singapore, as well as Chicago, San Francisco, and Duluth MN.

While this book is not for the timid or prudish, it is not just a bang-bang shoot-em-up action piece or gratuitous sexual escapade. It offers thought-provoking commentary on a wide range of issues: global economics, modern media, community control, child labor, the moral price of affluence, the breakdown of the traditional family, and the alienation and dysfunction becoming more and more common in our increasingly complex society.

"From Thailand With Love" is violent and sexy, endearing and sad, sometimes humorous and often gut-wrenching, a candid look at the sex service industry in America and Southeast Asia, and the people and lives it affects.

It is also a journey into the awakening of one man's conscience, who risks everything to put a stop to the sordid business of sex slavery and free its innocent victims.

The writing in this novel has been compared to that of the cult classic "Homeboy" by Seth Morgan and the hard-hitting novels of Dean Koontz and and character-driven stories of John Irving.
