A Snake in Paradise
By Louis Anschel
"Farangs walk along the streets, eying all the bar girls, cruising the gogos, seeing which girl they will rent for the night – in their arrogance they consider themselves as hunters and the girls as prey – I reverse their game."
Top-selling and treacherous, real estate agent Apple blackmails her customers in Pattaya after tête-à-têtes and also gets foreigner's money through a host of deceitful frauds and set-ups. When one of her clients assigns a private eye to end her schemes, Apple's house of cards collapses.
Apple, far better educated and more sophisticated than the girls in the past, belongs to a new generation. She is different and she is the most dangerous girl in paradise.
In his newest fast-paced thriller, Louis Anschel ("A Farang Strikes Back") focuses not only on typical tourists and expats who believe they have found their paradise in Thailand, but also takes an in-depth look at the childhood and youth of Apple, the titular heroine, which led to her actions and her justifications for them.
