This is an engrossing thriller about relationships with bar girls by a bestselling crime author. It is set in Thailand in 1996, the year of the Rat. Pete, a young travel writer, wanders into a Bangkok go-go bar and meets the love of his life. Joy is the girl of his dreams: young, stunningly pretty and one of the Zombie Bar's top earning pole dancers. What follows is a roller-coaster ride of sex, drugs and deception, as Pete discovers that his own very private dancer is not all that she claims to be and that far from being the girl of his dreams, Joy is his own personal nightmare.

  1. Fängslande
    Lisa, 23 april 2009

    Oavbrutet fängslande och fascinerande bok som ger en övertygande inblick i prostitutionen i Thailand. Anledningen till att jag inte ger den full pott är att författaren misslyckas i sitt försök att ge röst åt kvinnorna i boken, de förblir objekt betraktade ur en sviken mans perspektiv. Däremot de övriga personporträtten känns väldigt trovärdiga och "egenupplevda". Det är inte konstigt att den här boken har blivit en kultbok, man sugs in från första raden och berättelsen dröjer kvar i minnet efter att man läst ut den.
