Bangkok Burn – A Thriller by Simon Royle

I dare you to try to read this book is more than 3 days. No really. Go ahead.

Holy wow! Mr. Royle grabs us and drags us kicking and screaming into a hard boiled novel that is nothing short of action-packed. No, action-jammed. The characters are so well developed and well rounded while pushing the story further and further along.

I did have a few nit-pick editing issues (like the voice), but they were small and the strength of this book truly comes from the writing and the story.

I will say that I did enjoy the author’s previous book, Tag – A Technothriller (The Zumar Chronicles), slightly more, but that is more my genre. The fact is, though, that Bangkok Burn stands completely on it’s own and can hold it’s own.

I look forward to seeing what the author churns out next.

Recommended for those who are looking for an adrenaline rush and to be sucked into a fabulous story.

Take a walk on the darkside.

This chilling, high-octane thriller takes you to parts of Bangkok no tourist should ever go, a world where life is cheap and morality non-existent.

Hungry crocodiles, fast action, and strong characterizations make for a riveting read. The main character, Chance, is an enigma: family-orientated, loyal and loving… and a cold-blooded killer….

Rating: ★★★★☆
