Two-timing bargirls, suspicious spouses and lesbian lovers - it was all in a day's work for Bangkok Private Eye Warren Olson. For more than a decade, Olson walked the mean streets of the Big Mango. Fluent in Thai and Khmer, he was able to go where other private eyes feared to tread. His clients included Westerners who had lost their hearts and life savings to moneyhungry bargirls. But he had more than his fair share of Thai clients, too, including a sweet old lady who was ripped off by a Christian conman and a Thai girl blackmailed by a former lover. The stories are based on Olson's case files, disguised to protect the innocent and the guilty by bestselling author Stephen Leather. Olson has now relocated to his native New Zealand with his Thai wife and daughter, but the agency that he founded is still open for business at www.thaiprivateeye.com.

This volume - the follow-up to Olson’s bestselling "Confessions of a Bangkok Private Eye" - serves up more juicy portions of what goes on under the veneer in Thailand and includes stories deemed too hot to include in the first book for fear of repercussions. It also includes recent cases, where state-of-the-art surveillance devices and other advances in the dark arts of private investigation have made it easier to uncover dirt deep below the surface. This is a book that reads like exciting fiction, with one big difference: every story is true. Only the names and related identifying details have been changed to protect the innocent along with the guilty. These chronicles of a decade lived dangerously in the Land of Crooked Smiles will, by turns, entertain, shock, inflame and inform you.

From an expat hotel manager to a respected drug baron, a sadistic triad boss to a Thai transvestite, this action-packed novel set in Thailand has them all. At about the same time a Filipino maid is murdered on the enclave of Macau, a cleaning lady at a small resort on the Thai island of Koh Samui discovers that the excitement of a night spent with a friendly transvestite has been too much for the heart of an elderly Chinese guest. A quick trip through Malaysia to Singapore by the resort manager follows, leading to more nighttime escapades. From there it’s to the bars of Bangkok, and a gristly murder in Lumpini Park. Follow the trials, tribulations and loves of an easygoing Australian resort manager’s Southeast Asian adventure. The novel is based loosely on many of the places and people met by the author as he roamed Southeast Asia whilst carrying out investigations as the region’s best-known ‘real life’ Private Eye.

In the mid 1990's I founded THAI PRIVATE EYE, a Private Detective agency that over the ensuing decade would become the best known of its type in South East Asia. During that time numerous articles and interviews with me were written which became the basis for a bestselling book entitled Confessions of a Bangkok Private eye. This book was written shortly after my daughter was born in Bangkok when I realised that being shot at, receiving death threats and occasionally falsely incarcerated were not ideal hazards for a devoted father to deal with. I realised it was repatriation time, for my daughter's well-being as much as my own. Returning to clean green New Zealand I completed a degree in the field of Intelligence Analysis and Transnational crime along with the requisite research paper and in between raising my daughter did some writing.Finally I have completed the actual BANGKOK DETECTIVE. This is a work I trust not only entertaining ( many of the cases read like fiction but are recorded exactly as they unfolded ) but one also beneficial to a new generation of travellers heading eastwards be it for business or pleasure. Detailing the scams, pitfalls, people and places to either avoid or look out for in their South East Asian sojourns I trust the book will help enrich the journey and save some from learning lessons the hard way as I had to prior to the days of blogs, chat rooms and easily accessible on-line information.

The unique enterprise A Sense Of Place Publishing has just released its newest publication, Bangkok Busted: You Die For Sure. This is a deeply personal story by author William John Stapleton on the fallout after he wrote a book about being robbed, lied to and deceived by one of the city's go-go boys and the subsequent personal distress and widespread public ridicule he endured. Few foreigners are crazy brave or stupidly insane enough to tell their often embarrassing and humiliating stories of falling for the practiced love lies peddled to them by Thai sex workers. Such stories have resulted on the heterosexual side of the ledger in books such as My Private Dancer and Confessions of a Bangkok Private Eye. In the author's case he wrote The Twilight Soi, a book which made him a reviled figure by the Thai public who swallowed the lie that the book was an insult to Thailand, to its culture and to its sex workers. It is not and was never intended to be any such thing. "Most people in Asia cannot imagine why anybody would write a story admitting to their own stupidity and misguided conduct in falling for the 'I love you very much I miss you very much' patter of their prostitutes, either male or female," Stapleton says. "For a start, I first wrote the Twilight Soi and now Bangkok Busted: You Die For Sure because painters paint, builders build and writers write, and that's what do. "The story I related is so bizarre that I would not have believed it if it had not happened to me. The Thais were outraged that a foreigner as imperfect as myself should object to being robbed, cheated and publicly ridiculed. But I wanted to tell this story partly because I did not want what happened to me to happen to anyone else. "These men often make easy prey. They are lonely, they are out of their own comfort zones and away from the spying eyes of friends, family and work colleagues, often are without obligations of work or children for the first time in their lives, and run off the rails in the torrid atmosphere of Asia and its bars. They often enough end up suiciding."

The murder of a foreigner in Thailand kicks off this crime thriller, the first in the Shamus Award–winning series by “a terrific writer” (T. Jefferson Parker). A farang is dead, and the Bangkok police have a confession the next morning from a young paint-thinner addict. He claims he killed Ben Hoadly, an expat Brit—but American PI Vincent Calvino has his doubts when he sees heavy bruises on the kid’s face. In no time Calvino is working both sides, out to find the killer for Hoadly’s wealthy father, and eager to clear the addict’s name for a beautiful friend who runs a charity in the slums. With the help of his best friend, Pratt, a Shakespeare-quoting Thai police colonel, and his loyal assistant, Ratana, Calvino plunges into the dangerous world of addicts, dealers, fortune tellers, inexpensive hit men, oversexed foreigners, and professional bar girls . . . “Intelligent and articulate, Moore offers a rich, passionate, and original take on the private eye game” in this international bestseller (January Magazine).
