    A tale based on true events.

    The Bangkok Cowboys is a gritty, straight talking tale based on true events with dashes of unique northern humour in parts, bringing to life the astonishing journey of two working class men told by the writer in their own words, how they struggled working the streets in the rag trade throughout the North East of England. After them being held down by higher forces, they eventually get the break in the used-clothing industry using their wits and determination and become successful exporters into Eastern Europe.

    Striking up a friendship with their new Eastern European buyers, they soon realise that things are not all that they seem, and they are foolishly drawn into the paranoid world of trafficking cocaine out of England. Being overwhelmed by their new found wealth takes them on a path to the hedonistic world of Thailand’s red light districts, believing Thailand was the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow; their minds become blurred from the true reality of life.

    They then team up with an ex-Liverpool bouncer living in Bangkok, for their most daring plan of the whole operation, maybe thinking they were untouchable or they walked on water, they entered the corrupt world of Thailand. As always, in Thailand, money is number one to the Thais; this causing a dramatic showdown with the corrupt Thai police for an ending packed with suspense and betrayal showing Thailand’s corruption at its best.

    A fascinating look at what life is like living under Sharia law, the Islamic code of conduct.

    Bradbury has seen it first hand and suffered at the hands of it. He tells it as it is and what to expect.

    Do you know what Sharia law is?

    Have you ever considered what it would be like to live under Sharia law? If not, you should.

    One only has to look at the statistics showing the rise of Islam in the world today to see it is only a matter of time before Sharia comes to us all. There is no stopping it. In the future, it will be mandatory for many Western countries, if not all. Sceptics can disagree and look past the politicians who have paved the way for its implementation, but it will happen.

    But don’t be afraid. Some people are happy with it. They feel it is justified because it does have its good points—it cleanses the soul.

    Panarat Vipala treats her sweet and innocent daughter (Toy) to an unexpected 17th birthday present – a one-way bus trip from up-country Isaan to Pattaya, where she is put to work as a bar girl.
    A few years later, when Australian holiday-maker Andrew McKinnon meets Toy in a Pattaya bar, he ignores his instincts and falls in love with the bar girl.
    Soon after, Andrew and Toy team up and the couple travel north to Toy’s home province of Udon Thani, and what starts out as an idyllic romance quickly turns into a journey through a cultural minefield. McKinnon encounters age-old customs and traditions as he bids to be accepted into Toy’s family circle.
    Meanwhile, the lovers are forced to tread a wary line between non-interference and rescue when McKinnon’s best mate, Todd Walsh, falls for Bee, a beautiful Pattaya bank manager operating a cunning real estate scam.
    Against an emotional background of sex, greed, corruption and intrigue, a Bangkok psychic called Sukanya, and a natural disaster play roles in Andrew’s and Toy’s determination to hold onto true love and to save McKinnon’s Aussie mate from financial disaster.
