Confessions of a Bangkok Private Eye
True stories from the case files of Warren Olson
'Two-timing bargirls, suspicious spouses and lesbian lovers?it was all in a day's work for Bangkok Private Eye Warren Olson.'
For more than a decade Olson walked the mean streets of the Big Mango. Fluent in Thai and Khmer, he was able to go where other Private Eyes feared to tread.
His clients included Westerners who had lost their hearts?and life savings?to money-hungry bargirls. But he had more than his fair share of Thai clients, too, including a sweet old lady who was ripped off by a Christian conman and a Thai girl blackmailed by a former lover.
The stories are based on Olson's case files, fictionalised (to protect the innocent, and the guilty) by bestselling author Stephen Leather. Olson has now relocated to his native New Zealand with his Thai wife and daughter.
