Läs i vår app för iPhone, iPad och AndroidA sinuous, shattering thriller (Booklist, starred review) with a heart-stopping conclusion about a mysterious American woman who disappears in to the Cambodian underworld, and the photojournalist who tracks her through the clues left in her diary, by an author whose plotting and pacing are as sharp and original as his writing (Nelson DeMille).Phnom Penh, Cambodia: Lawless, drug-soaked, forgottenits where bad journalists go to die. For once-great war photographer Will Keller, thats kind of a mission statement: he spends his days floating from one score to the next, taking any job that pays; his nights are a haze of sex, drugs, booze, and brawling. But Wills downward spiral is interrupted by Kara Saito, a beautiful young woman who shows up and begs Will to help find her sister, June, who disappeared during a stint as an intern at the local paper. So begins Wills journey to the heart of drug-fueled noirness (New York Journal of Books). Theres a world of bad things June could have got mixed up in: the Phnom Penh underworld is in an uproar after a huge drug bust; a local reporter has been murdered in what looks like a political hit; and the government and opposition are locked in a standoff that could throw the country into chaos at any moment. Wills best clue is her diary: an unsettled collection of experiences, memories, and dreams, reflecting a young woman at once repelled and fascinated by the chaos of Cambodia. As Will digs deeper into Junes past, he uncovers one disturbing fact after another about the missing girl and her bloody family history. In the end, the most dangerous thing in Cambodia may be June herself. Propulsive, electric, and exotically enthralling, Cambodia Noir has it all: sex, drugs, and mystery (MetroUS).
