Murder at the Horny Toad Bar
And other Outrageous Tales of Thailand by Dean Barrett
Among several exotic and erotic tales of Thailand, readers are introduced to Bangkok's sexiest, most daring and least principled detective. Harry Boroditsky, who solves not one but two bizarre cases including, Murder at the Horny Toad Bar. Hard Bones Haggerty is a haunting tale of the Vietnam War, and, in Obsession, a man obsessed with his Thai girlfriend seeks revenge.
In the non-fiction section of the book, the author writes of searching Bangkok for his Vietnam War era barracks; he describes his encounters with the Khmer Rouge in eastern Thailand including a meeting with a beautiful and mysterious Cambodian woman, and his need to flee a Vietnamese Army; and what happens when a traveler boards the wrong train in southern Thailand.
In the section, "Memoirs of an oversexed Farang", the author writes of his several decades of encounters with the often enigmatic but, always beguiling, ladies of Thailand.
