Thailand is terrified. A sadistic serial killer has been abducting young innocents for his ritual horror and the authorities are clueless. Carl Engel is an enigma.

Struggling with advancing years and a decreasing workload he is approached by an elderly American with a lucrative missing persons case. The case descends into the sordid world of the elusive serial killer and a menacing web of political intrigue dating back to the Vietnam War. Carl must use his guile and experience to stay alive, find the killer and negotiate the dangerous military interests that lurk behind the scenes. Based on a real person Carl Engel lives in a world rarely seen by outsiders and hauls the reader on a pulsating ride to the explosive conclusion.

One of the best books I have ever read. The characters are realistic and the plot twists kept me reading straight through without a break. Mr. Wolff describes Thailand so vividly that the reader is transported into the story. Keep this author’s name on on your list for future buys!

I read the book in just two sittings, it was highly enjoyable and I recommend it to anyone who has spent any time in Bangkok or Thailand.The depictions of many of Bangkok’s hotspots were extremely vivid and even without mentioning name’s they were incredibly familiar. The author did an extremely good job of weaving fact and fiction together to produce an extremely enjoyable read.Looking forward to a follow up.

I have just finished reading “Bangkok Rules…#157; a new book by upcoming Author; Harlan Wolff. To be honest i don’t read a lot of books as i usually get bored quite easily but i have got to say i was hooked after the first few pages and found it hard to put down. Having never been to Bangkok the book gives you a great insight to both the beautiful & seedy side of life in Bangkok. The story, based i believe on the Authors past experiences as a (Private Investigator) in Bangkok over the last 30 years or so adding credibility to the content. I found the characters believable and brilliantly depicted, especially the (cat & rat.).To those like myself who don’t read a lot give it a shot you will not get bored with this book.I look forward to the next adventure of Carl Engle……………….
