This is the fourth book in a wonderful series. The characters are rich, dimensional people. And their relationships to each other are a large part of the enjoyment of the series.

Hallinan illustrates Bangkok colorfully, with detailed imagery and wonderful description that affects all the senses.

The plot is developed around emotional social issues but Hallinan deftly intertwines a playful sense of humor as well. The dialogue is sharp and flows naturally.

An overall exceptional read and one that I recommend regularly.
