June 2009 Debut of the Month. Told in the first person by a freelance journalist, this is an investigation into the circumstances that led an American anthropologist to be jailed for murder in Thailand. It is a fascinating, multi-stranded, informative story. The detail of missionary work, primitive tribes, life in Thailand and other eastern areas are presented as non-fiction, complete with footnotes, but it’s a tale of jealousy, grief and murder, completely enthralling. Comparison: Tash Aw, Amitav Ghosh, Geoff Ryman.
