Overview

Inside a secluded, lush estatelocated on the edge of Pattaya, an eccentric English-man’s gardener is found hanged. Calvino has been hired to investigate. Calvino finds himself pulled deep into the shadows of the war against drugs, into Code Orange alerts to flash across the screen of American intelligence.

In a story packed with twists and turns, Calvino traces the links from the gardener’s past to the door of men with power and influence who have everything to lose if the mystery of the gardener’s death is solved.

“Calvino does it again...well-developed characters and the pace keeps you reading well after you should have turned out the light.”
—Farang Magazine (Thailand)

“Intelligent and articulate, Moore offers a rich, passionate and original take on the private eye game, fans of the genre should definitely investigate, and fans of foreign intrigue will definitely enjoy.”
—Kevin Burton Smith, January Magazine

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.
