    For several years, Billy Ash has been a regular visitor to Thailand. At first, he wanted Kodi – but after the incident with that yellow-handled kitchen knife, he realised that Cassie was the safer option. She was special. She helped Billy rebuild Tiger Blue.
    A year has passed. Billy is back home in Glen Rowan; Cassie is running her hotel in Rambuttri. But now she wants to open a new hotel in Chiang Mai – and would like Billy Ash to come and share it with her.

    Although he’s fond of Cassie, Billy thinks she’s far too young and doesn’t see her in his future. But Cassie is interested in Billy – and if he won’t come to Thailand, then she will visit him in Scotland. Billy agrees; times and dates are arranged.
    Is there another woman in Billy’s life? Not really. Victoria (his former lover) is supposed to be in Australia – and after what Kodi did to Zakrovinsky, he never wants to see that Thai girl again.

    But while he waits for Cassie in Glasgow Airport, Billy is taken by surprise to see Victoria – who is on her way home from Canada. Is her unexpected return become his Chiang Mai get-out clause?

    Before Billy can decide which way to turn, he is hit by an even bigger nightmare. To buy her new hotel, Cassie needs to borrow money – and a Chinese financier is willing to help her. But the Chinese banker in a blurry cell-phone photo looks a lot like Kodi…

    Is she here to help? Or is she here to use Cassie’s hotel as a one-stop-shop to sell heroin in Chiang Mai?

    My Life in the Yellow Robe

    “This was my first book in English, written while I was a novice at a temple in Bangkok in 1981. The monastic experiences taught me to have patience while struggling to survive at a time of crisis in life.”

    Though this book was written over three decades ago, the content remains interesting for those wishing to know about the Buddhist way of life, especially of monks and novices at that time.

    Even now some events remain relevant, so they will remain till the world ends. That is to say, the happiness and suffering of all beings on earth will exist in people’s minds forever. We will be free of this bondage only when we attain enlightenment (nibbana).

    I am not an expert on Buddhism, but I’d like to share my old stories with my English-speaking friends who may like to know about the country that was formerly known as Siam.

    $4.99$13.99

    Lawrence Whiting has come to know the Thai monkeys of Phana very well in the seven years he has been running the Phana Monkey Project with his wife, Pensri. One of the things he has enjoyed most is the opportunity to introduce his monkey friends to so many Thai people as well as people from all over the world. He hopes that this book will enable even more people to appreciate these lovely creatures.

    After the monkeys had got comfortable with me… they would come up and touch my arm and then run away again. The mothers would walk up to me and set their babies down to play, and large males would bring their food and eat right next to me. They had let me into their world and I was forever changed.

    Observing them is interesting to see their behaviour and to see how much alike we are! Rita Cerdiera, PMP volunteer

    Life with Chelsea is just like drinking honey through a straw… It’s never easy – it needs patience. But once you learn the secret, you believe that you can walk on water!
    Thailand: Dave Shannon’s wedding day. He has married Chelsea – but before the happy couple can celebrate, his brand-new wife is snatched off the street by the gang of diamond-smuggling Trekkers…
    The price of her return? Those 33 diamonds that Anni ‘borrowed’ from Raphael Villavito. The Philippino gang-master wants Dave to hand them back – or pay the market value of $400,000 US dollars…
    If only! Six months ago, Anni gave those diamonds to Dave – as the weeks went by, the stones were sold or traded down to zero. But as the news of Chelsea’s return to Thailand spreads, other criminals begin to chase those diamonds…
    But forget the diamonds: Chelsea must be rescued from Villavito and his gang of Trekkers. For this, Dave needs help from Sulita and Vivienne – and from Lieutenant Samran of the Thai police…

    A True Story from South East Asia

    A True Story from Asia

    250 Thai Girls by Age 25, A True Story from South East Asia is a true-to-life adventure that can be relived from beginning to end. The story begins with the allure of travel and the need for new experiences. Sex, drugs, alcohol and debauchery are the name of the game, and the impetus behind this historic modern day journey. Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Udon Thani, Cambodia, Laos, and the pristine Andaman beaches of Kho Lipe are featured in this bold and daring travel adventure.

    The author narrowly escapes death at the hands of a knife wielding Cambodian mugger. He is violently robbed by a taxi driver in Bangkok. Held up by the Laos Police for running at a late night roadblock with a teen prostitute. And narrowly escapes a King Cobra in the jungles of Northern Thailand.

    This non-fiction story is as up to date, authentic, and original as anything in its genre. The names, places, and people from this wild South East Asian sexcapade have not been altered in any way. This book has the potential to spark a new generation of hedonistic travelers looking to better understand themselves, and where to go to make that possible. Once you go Asian, you will never go Caucasian.

    Join the author on his solo travels while he searches out every nook and cranny during his first year in South East Asia.

    $6.99

    Ce roman présente une galerie de personnages truculents et attachants dans les situations les plus typiques des étrangers venus vivre ou s’égayer dans le Pays du sourire. L’auteur ironise sur les maladroites tentatives d’adaptation à la vie orientale, variété thaïlandaise, d’Occidentaux bons vivants, traînant parfois sur leur dos un vieil adolescent pris du mal de vivre.

    Il s’agit de la traduction et adaptation de Bangkok Knights de Collin Piprell, écrivain canadien vivant en Thaïlande. Ce livre à succès a paru originellement en 1989 sous forme de nouvelles et a été réédité par la suite.

    Le livre est écrit dans une prose délicieusement ironique et quoique certaines situations soient légèrement exagérées pour l’effet comique, l’ensemble est résolument réaliste. La critique des comportements est présente sans nuire au ton léger. Le résultat est un livre immensément drôle, parfois émouvant et toujours instructif.

  • Thailand Changes

    $4.99$13.99

    This book takes an offbeat and humorous look at how tourism has changed radically in Thailand over the past thirty-five years, seen through the eyes of two red-blooded young men who made their first trips to the country over three decades apart.
    Peter Jaggs provides an unparalleled insight into the night-streets, tourist resorts and rural villages of both modern day and bygone Thailand and goes some way to explaining why many men become so hooked on the country after just one short visit, it changes their lives forever.
    Thailand Changes is at the same time both hilarious and sobering. The writing is blunt and honest and about as politically correct as a sexist Klansman on a baby seal hunt wearing an ocelot fur coat, so reader discretion is advised.

    $6.99

    The theft of the century! The famous Blue Diamond Affair! The jewel heist by a Thai employee in a Saudi Arabian Prince’s palace continues to have shocking repercussions. The object of analysis and speculation since 1989, it led to murder and corruption, threatened diplomatic relations between the two countries, and remains a mystery to this day.

    The Blue Diamond Affair is a thrilling tale of venality and greed that left a stunning amount of damage in its wake. Having pored over every detail of this complex intrigue, the author lays out the facts and draws new conclusions, with insights to relaunch the debate on what really happened.

    To place the affair in its context and provide local color, this story is merged with one couple’s adventure: a story of love and betrayal in a country seething with corruption. The main character, a woman of ambition, both vulnerable and heroic, woes to fight the power of the Thai oligarchy.

    This brings a universal human element and allows the author to delve into the shady world of bars and prostitution.

    A Carousel is a fairground ride that takes you round in circles… and brings you back to where you started. And the Bangkok Carousel?

    A never-ending ride to find a girl to get me over Kodi. But no matter who – or what – or where I found one, the Bangkok Carousel always carried me back towards Kodi. So who was Kodi?

    Easy answer: Kodi was the only girl I really wanted. What happened?

    If you work your way through the September editions of the Bangkok Times, you’ll find a couple of lines about a Wednesday evening in Soi Rambuttri when a young Thai girl was stabbed on the steps of the Tulip Tree… True: it happened. But by Persons Unknown? Not a chance! We knew exactly who had done it. But by the time they’d started the man-hunt, Zakrov and his crew had long-since vanished into the Golden Triangle… Forget all that. Zakrov and his crew would have to wait for another day. Right now, it was time for me to vanish into the green, green hills of Glen Rowan and decide how best to fix that heroin-pushing Romanian. But then my cell-phone purred with an incoming text message. It was four words long. I’d no idea who sent it. But someone was telling me to Never Give Up Hope!

    Did that mean she was still alive…?

    $16.95

    Walking the World 2, Book Two of Terrence Kero’s ground-breaking trilogy about human migration, tells the story of how five ethnic/linguistic hunter-gatherer clans left Africa some eighty thousand years ago and migrated to the western border of Thailand over the course of many millennia. The novel opens in 2011 at the University of California Berkeley, where Hanna Koskinen is an anthropology graduate student planning to write her PhD thesis on early human migration. When she becomes friends with Leewan Somwan, her next-door neighbor from Thailand, she begins to consider making Thailand the focus of her research, and when she falls in love with Leewan’s brother, Chaat, her decision is sealed. Chaat is a brilliant linguist who has developed a theory about the earliest prototypes of the five major Southeast Asian language families, and Hanna thinks she can use his theory, along with human population genetics and age-dated archaeological discoveries, to support the bold argument she wants to make in her thesis: that Thailand was the initial gateway for the first migration of homo sapiens to Southeast Asia. Stories imagining the tragedies and joys of these prehistoric people on their arduous journeys are interspersed with the present-day narrative of the tragedies and joys of the Koskinen and Somwan families, a narrative culminating in dramatic revelations about the early ancestry of the Somwans and the unexpected links that bond humankind.

    Chiang Mai is the most fascinating place on earth…and so is the food.
    Have you eaten a termite or met a Blacking Man? Have you seen the tree top spear fisherman, or tried to chew your way through a deep fried chicken head or a plateful of live shrimps? Have you ever wondered why there is a huge, stagnant, six mile and otherwise pointless canal running around the outer reaches of the south side of the city?
    This is a book about food, Chiang Mai, termites, sausages, ghosts, history, cooking, Islam, markets, death, noodles, forest fires, mushrooms and fish farming. (I think I’ve covered all bases).

    “Definitely on par with Bill Bryson but with more of a personal touch.” Alan, goodreads.com
    “Easily accessible, humorous and often embarrassingly honest.” Chiang Mai City Life
    “Love his books. Very funny, inspiring and interesting. Highly recommend to anyone.” Valerie, amazon.co.uk
