    Lek is just another beautiful ‘working girl’ in a seedy Phuket town full of working girls. But when she is kidnapped by a crazed genetic scientist and taken to his Bangkok laboratory, her life takes some very original twists and turns. The scientist is insane, but he is also brilliant, and before long he has made history by cloning Lek and turning out five identical replica ‘Leks’, each with distinct characteristics of her own.
    As the real Lek remains imprisoned in Bangkok, the clones are released and sent on wildly different paths. One takes over a bar on Soi Cowboy. Another ends up working for a Russian gangster and his Islamic allies in Pattaya. A third is a lesbian who is forced to work in a heterosexual bar in Bangkok’s Nana Plaza. Yet another finds herself in Chiang Mai where she dedicates herself to slipping in and out of Burma and creating havoc among the Burmese military. The last clone is perhaps the scariest of all – a psychopathic killer who relishes torturing and murdering her victims.
    As the tale progresses, the clones team up to combat Muslim terrorists who are intent on targeting Bangkok’s sex industry with a series of lethal bombs. Can Lek’s five clones work as one girl to stop the terrorists?

    He is just another dreamer running away from a high-pressure job, hoping that a little sand between his toes will help get his head back on straight. It is a perfectly good plan, until a beautiful young woman falls into his lap on a stormy Phuket beach. Is it fate that brings them together or simply too much Tequila?
    At least they have something in common: Mickie doesn’t trust tourists and he doesn’t trust bar girls. Surrounded by the tawdry nightlife of Patong, where few things are as simple as they first appear, the unlikely couple begins the slow dance of love.
    On the eve of his return to America, the traveler receives a most unusual gift: ancient tokens able to bend time to the will of their owner. But only for one minute at a time.
    Newly empowered by the tokens, his journeys take him far from the Land of Smiles into the depths of his memories and beyond. And yet, he can’t get Mickie out of his head. Separated by culture, continents, and what we call ‘commitment issues,’ will he find his way back to the woman he never should have left?

    Set in Thailand & Laos
    Why make a deal with the devil when you’ve got God on a technicality? For Bangkok Security Consultant and James Bond wannabe Richard Falcone, that technicality grants him immortality as long as he remains a blue falcon.
    blue falcon / n /  (slang, derog)  1(a) A code phrase coined by US military personnel. (b) Someone who serves himself at the expense of others. (c) Buddy F**ker
    But then he takes things a step too far.
    Framed by a dirty Thai cop for the murder of his boss and blackballed by his acquaintances, Falcone flees to Laos where he finds sanctuary, if not peace. There, an encounter with a man known as the Anti-Buddha inspires an unorthodox mission to reconcile his need for vengeance and atonement. Technicalities be damned, Falcone launches a daring operation that may not only satisfy divine justice, but irrevocably change the lives of his alienated friends and jilted lovers – if it doesn’t get them all killed first.

    English language expert Rodrigo Hernandez de Vargas is a familiar face in Jakarta’s (in)famous Jalan Jaksa kampong, having lived there several years. He’s got the place mapped, including where the open sewers are, is fluent in Bahasa Indonesia, got a great rooftop pad and makes enough money to look after himself, party on the weekend and take trips to various Asian destinations during term breaks.
    Nevertheless he gets more than a bit lonely, at times. Sure, there are plenty very attractive temporary companions to take out for a date, but this Latino prefers something a bit more romantic and long lasting, something more like a relationship.
    However, when he finds what he is looking for, he gets a lot more than he expected.
    Lots more trouble, that is.
    Sure, he can escape… and he does so eventually… to Bangkok… only to find his old stamping ground strewn with one fracas after the other, though admittedly not all of his own doing.
    But seriously… does he learn anything new and/or useful?
    Indeed he does, though that only becomes clear at the end of this travel-cum-living-rather-dangerously three-part saga.

    Nick, ein achtbarer junger Lehrer macht neue, tiefgehende Erfahrungen an einem Strand in Thailand, die sein Leben verändern. Er gibt seinen Job auf und streift kreuz und quer durch Süd-Thailand, von einer neuen Bekanntschaft und spontanen Interaktion zur nächsten, einschließlich eines ebenfalls ‚tiefgehenden‘ Ganzkörperchecks auf einem Flughafen. Während er immer tiefer in die verbotene Unterwelt des Insellebens hinabgleitet, verliert er seine Achtbarkeit Stück für Stück.
