Five foreigners have died in Bangkok. Were they drug overdose victims or victims of a serial killer? Calvino believes the evidence points to a serial killer who stalks tourists in Bangkok. The Thai police, including Colonel Pratt, donít buy his theory.

Calvino teams up with an LAPD officer on a bodyguard assignment. Hidden forces pull them through swank shopping malls, rundown hotels, Klong Toey slum, and bars in the redlight district as they try to keep their man and themselves alive. As Calvino learns more about the bodies being shipped back to America, the secret of the serial killer is revealed.

Praise

The story is plausible and riveting to the end.
—The Japan Times

Tight, intricate plotting, wickedly astute . . . Cold Hit will have you variously gasping, chuckling, nodding, tut-tutting, oh-yesing, and grinding your teeth throughout its 330 pages.
—Guide of Bangkok

The plot is equally tricky, brilliantly devised, and clear. One of the best crime fiction in the first half of the year.
—Ultimo Biedlefeld

[Cold Hit] is no standard thriller, but a suspense literature full of original metaphors.
—Saarbrücker Zeitung

City jungle, sex, drugs, power, but also good-hearted people: a complete crime.
—Zwanzig Minuten Zürich

A colourful piece, rich in action, of detective literature.
—Title Magazin.de

Calvino is a wonderful private detective figure! Consistent action, masterful language . . .and Anglo-Saxon humour at its best.
—Lutz Bunk, DeutschlandRadio, Berlin

Moore depicts the city from below. He shows its dirt, its inner conflicts, its cruelty, its devotion. Hard, cruel, comical and good.
—Readme.de

What is outstanding in the works of Christopher G. Moore is his in depth comprehension of what psychiatrist Carl Jung labeled the collective unconscious, as it applies to Thai motivation, thinking and action. Moore understands the Thais better than many understand themselves.
—Bangkok Post

Cold Hit definitely is one of those books you will not want to put down.
—Pattaya Mail

Calvino investigates the death of a friend, a Canadian painter. The medical examiner finds the young man has ingested an exit drug, and the police verdict of suicide seems justified. But in Bangkok appearances have a habit of deceiving. Sometimes jumpers are given a leg up in their leap to the next life. Fingering the helper can be a risky business, and for Calvino this promises to be one of those times. More>>

The Age of Dis-ConsentThe Age of Dis-Consent

In the follow up to The Cultural Detective, Faking It in Bangkok, and Fear and Loathing in Bangkok, Moore pays caring and critical homage to his residence of choice by diagnosing some of Thailand’s discontents and offering subtle remedies for readers to tease out.

The essays range from political conflict to violence and criminal investigations in the digital age, to cultural upheavals, cognitive science and writing, including essays about Orwell, Kafka, and Henry Miller. More>>
