    A Steady Tale

    I enjoyed the Thailand locations and the low key eccentric characters, but the story was slow and not very engaging. I'm moving on to Cockeyed next and I hope it is an improvrment.

    Bill63 has it right

    Having read Bill63's review, I agree with what he says. I stop at 4 stars only because the writing is a little short of what one gets used to in five star crime novels. But it is enjoyable, funny in parts, sexy at times, and very intriguing as to Thai law and culture.

    Great New Installment

    The tenth in the long-running Don Strachey PI series represents a departure for Stevenson, and it is a good one. Strachey and his lover and sidekick Timothy Callahan travel all the way to Thailand when the ex-husband of an Albany woman goes missing with 38 million dollars. The intricate plot involves political corruption, celebrity astrologers, and shady business deals. However, it is the interweaving of exotic Thai cultural practices and beliefs that give this enjoyable thriller its unique flavor. It is also sexy and often quite humorous.
