The Risk of Infidelity IndexBook - 2007
Christopher G. Moore's internationally-acclaimed, prize-winning series starring Vincent Calvino, disbarred American lawyer turned Bangkok P.I. finally comes to North America with The Risk of Infidelity Index , a gripping novel set in a superbly textured, masterfully rendered Bangkok. When his surveillance of a major drug piracy ring ends in definitive video evidence, it looks like Vincent Calvino's fortunes are about to turn. But when the client dies of a heart attack and Calvino finds the body of a murdered massage girl downstairs, the authorities get suspicious of the farang who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. To make matters worse, with the dead client unable to pay, Calvino is desperate and forced to take on a job he doesn't want: following husbands for jealous expat housewives. Featuring a brilliant cast of characters including a wealthy Thai celebrity protected by important political connections, a lawyer with perfect memory, a Shakespeare-quoting police colonel, and Calvino's loyal assistant, Ratana, The Risk of Infidelity Index is a thrilling read from an important name in literary crime fiction.
