    Thailand’s answer to ’50 Shades of Grey’
    Freedom’s Choice is the second novel in a trilogy that describes how Thailand’s political difficulties affect Bob and Jasmine; the first novel in this series was Justice, Please!
    In the present story they have returned to Thailand after a brief holiday in Australia.  But problems of their recent past pull them apart, after which Bob meets an enticing street walker, Joy, in Pattaya. The ensuing months present many difficulties, with these only relieved somewhat by periodic visits to the temple at Phrathat Phanom. However, political tension is rising in Thailand by early 2010, with red shirt activists protesting for new elections, especially in Bangkok.
    Bob goes there to search for his wife, finding himself enmeshed in the events leading up to the riots that overwhelmed the city in May. He finds that he must take a stand and choose between his lover or his wife, while at the same time Thailand is being forced to choose between the colour-coded political options being shaped by red versus yellow shirt camps.
    Freedom’s Choice presents him with choices between what he knows in his heart he must do, contrasted by what the forces of history are saying he should do. Which way will he choose to go, and what effect will it have on the politics he finds himself caught within?This book uses both humour and sexually charged liaisons to show how personal drama can influence the politics of the day.
    The story balances philosophy with action, love with lust and reality with fantasy, much as each of us does every day. But this time it’s different, in that this story is larger than everyday life, showing how one person can make a difference to what seems like an impossible situation.

    Recent demonstrations in Egypt and elsewhere in the Middle East point to the power of social networking sites, like Facebook, to assist democratic change. Justice, Please! also uses Facebook fan pages to rally help for a pair of lovers who have been wronged by corrupt cops.
    Set against the backdrop of Thailand’s current political difficulties, it is a modern love story involving police chases, intense news coverage, local protests and increasing international interest. Twists in the tale show how important it is to have the help of family, friends and international support to try to get some overdue justice.
    The book blends humour and sensitivity to highlight what can be done in the midst of the political turmoil of Thailand – the story shows that love and loyalty are found to help any cause. The dialogue makes the book easy to digest, while the fast action makes it a pleasure to read.
