Since I am the author of this book (think I am allowed to post, a soft plug!), I will paste below some of my favourite reviews from Amazon, (more reviews here: https://amzn.to/2KMYVfN)
"Though I lived in Bangkok on and off for nearly seven years I never read a Bangkok Noir novel, despite the fact that the shelves of Asia Books and Books Kinokuniya are awash with such material. I recently thought I would set this right by reading Bangkok Delusions and I enjoyed it so much I feel compelled to recommend it to others! This book is a real gem and I would imagine parodies the genre perfectly. It’s rare for a book to make me snort out loud whilst reading but the shenanigans of Bob and co had me in stitches, much to the vexation of my fellow passengers on my train to work. Though it is mostly light in tone, as Brodsky delves deeper into the underbelly of Bangkok’s bar scene he exposes a dark dangerous world full of obsession, temptation and scheming and manipulating individuals ready to take advantage, morning and night, of the next poor sap who stumbles into their dollhouse. Heartily recommended!"
"Brodsky takes us on a journey through Bangkok’s seedy underbelly exposing the casual exploitation of Thailand’s sex workers. A Tarantino-style revenge ensues complete with humour, violence and memorable characters."
