Trouble in Thailand

Koh Tao (Leo Keane international thriller Book 0) by [Luke Richardson]


Koh Tao is the prequel novella to Luke Richardson’s Leo Keane international thriller series 

Leo and Mya are travelling the world. It might be the trip of a lifetime, but Leo has only one thing on his mind – finding the perfect place to ask Mya to marry him. And when they arrive at their trip’s final destination, the Thai tropical paradise of Koh Tao, he thinks he’s found it. But before he gets his answer, Mya’s nowhere to be seen.

On searching the resort, his tranquillity turns to turmoil. Is it a practical joke? Has Mya run away? Or is it something much more sinister?

Leo seeks help from the island’s police force, but when they rapidly arrest Omar, a migrant hotel worker and close the case, Leo suspects a cover-up. In order to even begin to learn the truth about Mya’s disappearance, Leo needs to prove Omar innocent. But with him being shipped to the notorious prison on Koh Samui on the next ferry, every second counts.

Set two years before Kathmandu, this compulsive novella turns back the clock on a man struggling to deal with his anxiety and battle powerful forces in a foreign land.

Bizarre Thailand: Tales of Crime, Sex and Black Magic by [Jim Algie]


Bizarre Thailand takes readers off the well-rutted road of tourist hotspots into the darkest and sexiest hinterlands. Welcome to a twilight zone where travellers become soldiers and cowboys, a black magician courts politicians and film stars, sacred tortoises mate on the streets of a small town, and Fertility Goddesses are wooed with massive phalluses.
In this strange land, nothing is what it seems: a prison becomes a tourist attraction, a 20-storey robot is a building, a man becomes a beauty queen, a Buddhist temple turns into hell on earth, a loving wife is immortalized as the most famous and ferocious of all phantoms, and a serial killer’s corpse is reincarnated as a museum exhibit.
Bizarre Thailand takes an irreverent look at how the profound, profane and frankly quite odd intertwine with the rhythms and flows of everyday Thai life, paying homage to the quintessential culture of one of Southeast Asia’s most captivating destinations.

The “Tsunami” gave light to her existence: love her neighbor and herself.

Saving Karma: A full-throttle thriller throughout Asia by [Reid Bracken]

I’m waiting for my copy, looking forward to reading this.

Bree Thomas is the lone survivor of an explosion that killed her parents in Thailand years ago.

A few weeks from high school graduation, Bree discovers that the aunt she’s been living with in America is no relation at all and wants her out of the house—like now—leaving her college ambitions in ruins.

So when a strange foundation offers her a free college education once she completes a two-year altruistic apprenticeship abroad, Bree is all-in, without knowing the whole story–anything to avoid homelessness and a bleak future.

But when the charitable foundation gig turns out to be military-style training at an isolated jungle camp in Thailand, Bree realizes she’s been recruited to deliver enslaved men, women and children from backwater hellholes to the sanctuary of New Lingyang, an unpopulated walled city in China.

Bree becomes enamored with saving oppressed people until discovering that behind the philanthropic facade of New Lingyang lies a shocking truth that makes her complicit in a horrific atrocity inflicted on the men, women and children she delivered there.

Now, with time running out, Bree must take on a global Chinese conspiracy to save the people she put in harm’s way and for the sake of saving Karma…

“If Mitch Rapp or Jack Reacher ever had a daughter, she would be Bree Thomas.”

“ Bree Thomas is the female James Bond. Just like Thai food—she’s SWEET, SOUR and SPICY.”

“A no let go thrill-ride through Asia that keeps you hanging on like a petrified bat.”


From Thailand with Love: An Enemies to Lovers Romantic Comedy (First Comes Love Book 5) by [Camilla Isley]


All Logan has to do is to get the gold and get the girl. Easy, right?

Travel photographer Winter Knowles and archeology professor Logan Spencer dislike each other at first sight. Stuck together into the wild, these two unwilling teammates will bicker and banter their way through a laugh-packed treasure hunt.

After years of searching, a new mapping technology has given Logan a clue to the location of the legendary Lost City of Gold. A discovery that could make his career. So the last thing he needs on this life-changing expedition is for his team to get distracted by a pair of long legs.

When Winter accepted the assignment on a tropical island she didn’t sign up for a brooding team leader who’d clearly prefer to run a boys-only club. Never one to back down from a challenge, Winter is ready to show him she’s no damsel in distress.

But when a treasure like no other is uncovered and ruthless enemies will want to keep it for themselves, it’ll be up to the two of them to save the day. Left alone to fight in the jungle, they will soon discover their lives might not be the only thing at stake—their hearts could be too.

Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime.
