The Bangkok police already have a confession by a nineteen-year-old drug addict who has admitted to the murder of a British computer wizard, Ben Hoadly. From the bruises on his face shown at the press conference, it is clear that the young suspect had some help from the police in the making of his confession. The case is wrapped up. Only there are some loose ends that the police and just about everyone else is happy to over look.

The search for the killer of Ben Hoadley plunges Calvino into the dark side of Bangkok, where professional hit men have orders to stop him. From the world of thinner addicts, dope dealers, fortunetellers, and high-class call girls, Calvino peels away the mystery surrounding the death of the English ex-public schoolboy who had a lot of dubious friends.

Read excerpt



Well-written, tough and bloody.
—Bernard Knight, Tangled Web (UK)

A thinking man’s Philip Marlowe, Calvino is a cynic on the surface but a romantic at heart. Calvino . . . found himself in Bangkok—the end of the world for a whole host of bizarre foreigners unwilling, unable, or uninterested in going home.
—The Daily Yomiuri

A worthy example of a serial character, Vinee Calvino is human and convincing. [He] is an incarnate of the composite of the many expatriate characters who have burned the bridge to their pasts.
—Thriller Magazine (Italy)

For those who love Asia, they will devour Moore’s novels. He opens [Bangkok] in her darkest, most amusing facets. He reveals the inhabitants’ mindsets, their secrets and their temptations. Bangkok is his central figure.
—Stadtmagazin Krefeld

A complex and suggestive plot set in the underworld of Bangkok, full of foreign inhabitants. With all her contradictions, the city is more than a backdrop. She is alive.

Best in this Spring. Unionverslag brings the best selling author Christopher G. Moore to Germany. Hopefully more [of his novels] will follow.

Good, that there are still real crime writers. Christopher G. Moore’s [Spirit House] is colourful and crafty.
—Johannes Kaiser, Hessischer Rundfunk

Moore writes brilliantly and thrillingly.
—Schweizer Familie

Memory ManifestoMemory Manifesto

Memory Manifesto’s 35 short chapters reveal Christopher G. Moore’s personal map of the Cambodia labyrinth. Moore worked as journalist, novelist, and essayist which took him through T-3 prison, Khmer Rouge minefields, border refugee camps in the company of activists, artists, film makers, musicians, writers and unsavory characters. The overall effect is a powerful vision of one writer’s memory shaped by the forces of myth-making, illusions, history and imagination. More>>


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>>
