More About the Author

Simon Royle was born in Manchester, England in 1963. He has been variously a yachtsman, advertising executive, and a senior management executive in software companies. A futurist and a technologist, he lives in Bangkok, with his wife and two children.

Simon's first two novels Tag, and Bangkok Burn, have been well received by Amazon readers.

Tag is a technothriller set in the year 2109. What readers have called,

- "more futuristic than science-fiction, and the technological advances of 2110 are not far-fetched, they are easily imaginable."

- "...in "Tag." The technology felt like a logical evolution from today to one hundred years into the future."

- ""Tag," reminds me a bit of one my childhood favorite authors, Isaac Asimov, in that he's written a book that projects a future reflecting very plausible cultural and political scenario, given what trends we've seen in history."
(Above quotes stolen from recent reviews on Amazon US).

As Simon, says :), "With 'Tag' I drew on my travels and experiences in Singapore and Australia. Extrapolating from things I see today and placing them in the context of our world a hundred years from now."

Bangkok Burn - a noir thriller, set during the May 2010 riots in Bangkok, has proved a hit with readers; especially those who have traveled to Thailand.

- "A red-hot thriller set against the exotic backdrop of Bangkok, this is a blistering read from start to finish."

- "I loved this book from beginning to end, it kept me hooked and on the edge of my seat the whole way through. I can't wait for the sequel." (Author's note: "I'm working on it...")

I bought this direct from the kindle with very little research into the author, etc.. I found it quite engaging, it certainly held my attention and did a good job of blending a level of believe-ability with fiction. Its not as good as girl with the dragon tattoo but its of that genre, I'd certainly read another book by this author.

Just wanted to say WOW to Bangkok Burn, it's a great read. Normally I wouldn't read this genre but I found that I couldn't put it down; the action was fast, characters well-developed, and the storyline gripping. Simon Royle has managed to create a complete world and what a world it is with crocs in the swimming pools intrigue on intrigue.

I look forward to more.

I read this book in the space of a few days, a great read and in my opinion very well written.. The plot appealed to me as a regular traveller to Bangkok, with a few names and places I recognised but the story was the main reason I enjoyed the book so much. Well worth downloading, I'm looking forward to seeing a sequel!

It didn't disappoint after reading Bangkok Wet, I couldn't wait to get started. I love Mr Royle`s writing style and would almost put him up there with the likes of Stephen Leather. He has the same understanding of all things Thai and the ways of the LOS.
This is a riveting good read, fast-paced with more twists and turns than the Monte Carlo rally. I didn't want it to end and, without wishing to spoil this ripping good yarn for others, sincerely hope that Chance doesn't really meet his maker.

Having read a number of uncomplimentary reviews of this book, I might agree that the writing does, at times, leave something to be desired. There is a definite lack of character development and the book prematurely dives into action right from the start. Nonetheless, however, I still found reading the book rather entertaining--when I could keep the sometimes confusing details straight. The setting is exotic (Bangkok, Thailand),the storyline moves along and keeps you reading wondering what will happen next. There is much blood and guts violence in the book, some sex and some description about what it is like to live in Thailand--the latter part I would love to have seen the author explore in more detail. While reading the book I found myself flashing back to the Michael Douglas film BLACK RAIN. Much of this book, like the film, centers its activity around the doings of the Asian mafia, at times the Japanese jacuzza. It also brings me back to the days I was stationed, first as a Navy Hospital Corpsman, in Okinawa, then nine years later as a federally employed civilian at Camp Zama,Japan twenty miles outside of Tokyo. All in all I think the book IS a good read. The writing, of course, could use some work but a sequel to this book would be inviting.
