Product Description

Product Description

27 October 2011
As Bangkok barricades itself against a rising flood of toxic waste, Chance has got some wet work of his own going on. He'd rather be on honeymoon with Pim; that had been the plan.

But the plan didn't include the untimely death of a Godfather's son, being blamed for the theft of a billion baht, and a move by a rival gang on Big Tiger's territory; now there's a new plan - war and retribution.

Funny thing about guns and plans - everyone's got one.

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...")

5.0 out of 5 stars Bangkok Wet another great novel from Simon Royle 28 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I downloaded this book's prequel, Bangkok Burn, I had never heard of Simon Royle; had no knowledge of Bangkok; and wasn't interested in gangster novels at all - particularly Thai gangster novels. By the time I'd finished the first chapter I was addicted. The plot was speedy and believable and the characterisation superbly real. I felt as if I was being allowed to see into a secret world that few people really get to see. The main character, Chance, was a hero but at the same time a villain and his girlfriend was hot. His extended family were honourable in that way only families bound together by tradition and shared experience can be, and they were as sharp as a flick knife in a crowded bar.

In short, and much to my surprise... I loved it.

Now Simon Royle has brought us Bangkok Wet, the second novel in the Bangkok series. I was prepared to be disappointed; I hardly ever enjoy a second in the series as much as the first. I wasn't. The book is just as good and as great a read. Just how Mr Royle has done this I have no idea. Often characters become stale as the story goes on. But in Bangkok wet they just get more realistic with a depth that grows with each turn of the page.

The ending is a real cliffhanger. I won't say more, you need to read it. But read Bangkok Burn first - you'll really enjoy Wet if you read them both in order.

I can't wait for more from this exciting and underrated author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bangkok Wet 26 May 2013
By BigAl
Format:Kindle Edition
Bangkok Wet continues the story of Chance, the farang (a Caucasian, in Thai), who is being groomed to take over his adoptive Thai father's crime family. With his childhood friend and bodyguard, Chai, in tow, Chance searches for his new bride (kidnapped before they could leave on their honeymoon) and runs afoul of multiple groups with their own agendas. In the end, he uncovers some unexpected history and plenty of nefarious goings-on.

I view the Bangkok series as akin to a Thai version of The Godfather. The interaction between the members of the crime family, other crime families, police, politicians, and civilians is similar in some regards, yet not in others. The setting in Thailand and the cultural differences add much to the story and its feel. It also occurs to me that Chance, although in theory on the wrong side of the law, is a character who I pull for because he lives by a code that, while crossing lines that might make him seem bad, is actually more ethical and moral than the corrupt government officials he often has to deal with. Just as with Bangkok Burn, this latest installment of the Bangkok series is a fast paced thrill ride through the Thai underground, and should keep you on the edge of your seat right up to the shocking end.
