Abstract:

In District 8, the underbelly of Bangkok's crime world, a mutilated body is found in a hotel bedroom. It looks bad: the corpse is CIA. And it gets worse for Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep when the murderer appears to be the most successful 'working girl' at The Old Man's Club, a brothel owned jointly by Sonchai's mother and his boss, Police Colonel Vikorn. Alerted by Sonchai, Vikorn quickly concocts a cover-up that involves an Al Qaeda terrorist cell - a ploy he believes will prove irresistible to the American spy agency. The bizarre truth that is eventually uncovered, with a little help from the dead, may be too challenging even for the wily colonel, as Sonchai is forced to run the gamut of Bangkok's drug dealers, prostitutes, bad cops, corrupt military generals, and the pitfalls of his own melting heart.
