    One thought on “Bangkok Rules”

    1. I generally read books based in Bangkok for the thrill of recognizing the places mentioned but usually find them poorly written and or simplistic Bangkok Rules gives me that thrill in a well written,, uptempo romp in a Bangkok I scarcely knew existed Harlan gives us a great protagonist in Carl Engels in that we relate to him being damaged goods, get to know him warts and all and can side with his character because he s just like us while leaving enough undiscovered territory for a sequel The plo [...]

    3. Fantastic Right from the start I could see I d enjoy the story interesting protagonist, exotic location, exciting premise but I initially feared the story telling would take away from that However as I got into the flow the stylistic quirks quickly started to work, creating the feeling that you were in a shady bar listening to the story from the horse s mouth, complete with the minor imperfections of a story re told rather than written down If you enjoy the work of Jussi Henry Adler Olsen or Jo [...]

    6. Harlan Wolff joins Jake Needham as my co favorite authors of thrillers based in Bangkok Wolff s Bangkok Rules oozes authenticity down to recognizable bars and characters, though I m not certain I would appreciate being featured in the book as the author can be savage with his portrayals The book starts out fast, with a diabolical serial killer and a likeable, believable overweight, middle aged localized expat set in opposition early on There are several good plot turns, plenty of wry commentary [...]

    8. Surprisingly excellent I love crime stories but this one is surprisingly excellently written I love it when I can t figure out the end before I get there.

    9. Kindle unlimited Outline to remind me of the story.At first the constant in out of Patpong and other red light areas seemed to be over the top but for a PI an ideal place to get information and so on So in the end it blended in and the plot and politics was first rate In fact the concept of law and order, bribes and corruption I would guess very realistic As to sadistic serial killers, no idea if any exist There have been a number of serial killers Not many but the sadistic part In war times pro [...]

    11. I really liked the idea of a private investigator who lives in Bangkok, writing novels about a private investigator who lives in Bangkok Harlan Wolff s writing is packed with what you might call insider knowledge He knows where all the seedy bars are, where to find the ex pat CIA guys, and of course, where to find the girls There s a sadistic serial killer on the loose in the city, but long suffering PI Carl Engel has other things on his mind he s short of cash, so when a high paying new client [...]

    14. I always get a slight thrill reading a book set in the place I am living and this was no exception For a d but novel, there are a lot of positives in Harlan s writing but perhaps still some places where he could tighten up his prose and his character development It is not Harlan s fault, but perhaps I am growing tired of detectives private detectives in the crime genre always being damaged goods How refreshing it would be to see a happy, non alcoholic, family man as the central character There a [...]

    16. Bangkok rules starts off slowly but well planned, with a narrative that sets the stage nicely for the drama that is soon to come.The main protagonist is a wise old expatriate who always seems to be one step ahead of the goons even when he freely admits that his best plan is often to have no plan.The CIA joins the party in the Thailand expatriate community, along with serial killers, coke addicts, club girls, jazz singers and a whole lot of classical music After a lot of dead bodies and a couple [...]

    17. A good book that makes me want to move to Thailand Being an expat can t be all that bad can it Oh to live the free life This book made me feel like I was really there A stranger in a stange land Buy a round of drinks and hug a pretty young girl What could go wrong Well plenty if you are Carl Stuff like the CIA, a Thai general, and a whole buncha people with a whole lot of money Did I mention that Inman should not be messed with You decide.

    18. Having been in Bangkok a number of times I was impressed to discover in the book many places which I was was familiar with not all the girlie bars I would add I like this in a novel where real places give a much authentic feel to the plot Great thriller and with so much detail about Carl the private investigator the main character in the book When I read that the author is in fact a private investigator in Bangkok that explained the sense of realism throughout the plot.

    19. A fast paced book set in current day Bangkok involving few Thais but lots of foreign expats Good beach reading and interesting plot development The books offers a nice landscape of the seedier parts of Bangkok and the delights they offer the expat community Are foreign expats living in Bangkok all drunken sex maniacs as Mr Wolff portrays Probably not, but those who are sedate do not make as interesting characters for a novel.

    20. Bangkok Rules by Harlan Wolff BangkokThe oriental setting for this crime thriller reminds me of the song of Murray in the 80 s Numerous visits to the various soi s of the city brings in a live depiction of the happenings as portrayed by the author An American serial killer tracked by Carl the private investigator amid the political instability of the Kingdom along with the corruption and free lifestyle of the country is explicit in the writing A break theme to read

    21. Wow, what a fantastic novel, I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end Having never been to Bangkok I have no idea whether the settings were real but they were conjured up with so much detail I think I d know them if I saw them The characters were well written and multi faceted with believable dialogue and the plot was unravelled in a concise and direct manner This was a totally enjoyable read and I will definitely be recommending it.

    22. Great ReadInteresting story and since the author is a PI and lives in Thailand, I can only assume that a lot of the areas spoken of in the book, do exist Very interesting information about their government and how the laws work and the countries contention to the American soldiers during the Vietnam war Worth readingGood story line and strong characters

    23. Wonderful to find a well written mystery set in Bangkok Love the serial killer angle and insights into just how things work here in Thailand One minor disappointment thought there would be some meaning behind the taking of his victims ears Looking forward to in this series

    24. Serial killer in bangkok, intrigue, cynical PI all make for a good easy read Love reading stories set in the country I visit, as can picture the areas, roads, streets, atmosphere and this one doesn t disappoint Got to like thriller, murder, mystery stories to enjoy this though I did.

    25. I loved recognising the places mentioned in the book The story is gripping and kept me on my toes I wished there could have been some twists to the plot, as I felt this may have increased tension at vital moments.

    26. Sounds like a well worn genre but Wolff brings a new and original perspective to his writing In many ways, reminds me of the creative plotting of Agatha Christie Wolff spices up the narrative with pointed and insightful comments on the amorality of emerging multinationalism.

    27. Mr Wolff knows Thailand that comes across from the very first page.I was preparing myself for one of those awful and with one leap he was free endings but the author delivers a highly original and ingenious denouement Highly recommended.

    28. Really enjoyed good to see some gritty crime fiction set in Bangkok that has one foot firmly set in reality and is not just playing up to the sex tourist theme that all too many other do I look forward to reading about Carl s adventures in the future.
