First time to this mystery, mentioned in NY Times Sunday book review on international thrillers. Novelistic writing plus ignorance the book is third of a trilogy create a murky experience -what is going on in this ex-pat bar in the sleazier alleys of humid Bangkok. The crimes of the past Viet Nam war that haunt the present are hard to make out , but the psychological stresses of minor characters are covered well.
