Bangkok Haunts by John Burdett

Bangkok Haunts brings back Thai detective and devout Buddhist, Sonchai Jitpleecheep, first introduced in John Burdett's Bangkok 8 and Bangkok Tattoo. Sonchai gets a video tape in the mail that shows a snuff film, and the woman being murdered is one of his past lovers, Damrong. As Sonchai investigates the case, he finds himself longing for his past love while sleeping next to his newly pregnant wife. Sonchai again is forced to delve into the seedier side of Bangkok, where sex is bought and sold amid an exclusive men's club, while Sonchai's Captain Vikorn continues to see things from a pragmatic and business perspective. This case, though, leaves Sonchai haunted. Bangkok Haunts has received positive reviews with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch saying, "Full of his usual insights into the subculture for which Thailand is known, Bangkok Haunts is Burdett's best mystery yet in the series."
