Overview

Five foreigners have died in Bangkok. Were they drug overdose victims or victims of a serial killer? Calvino believes the evidence points to a serial killer who stalks tourists in Bangkok. The Thai police, including Colonel Pratt, don’t buy his theory.

Calvino teams up with an LAPD officer on a bodyguard assignment. Hidden forces pull them through swank shopping malls, rundown hotels, Klong Toey slum, and bars in the redlight district as they try to keep their man and themselves alive. As Calvino learns more about the bodies being shipped back to America, the secret of the serial killer is revealed.

“The story is plausible and riveting to the end.”
—The Japan Times

“Tight, intricate plotting, wickedly astute . . . Cold Hit will have you variously gasping, chuckling, nodding, tut-tutting, oh-yesing, and grinding your teeth throughout its 330 pages.”
—Guide of Bangkok

“The plot is equally tricky, brilliantly devised, and clear. One of the best crime fiction in the first half of the year.”
—Ultimo Biedlefeld

“[Cold Hit] is no standard thriller, but a suspense literature full of original metaphors.”
—Saarbrücker Zeitung

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.
