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.

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.

One heck of a zinger of thriller, packed with twists and turns and a fantastic descriptive backdrop through the maze of the Thai streets and minds.
A highly recommended book, with the main protagonist Chance, echoing the great Nichols Linnear, of Eric Van Lustbader fame.
Bangkok's own Bond. The plot is very tightly stitched and works on many layers.
Off to buy more of Mr Royle's offerings.

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!

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed this. It's a complicated story so I did have to back up a few times and re-read but it's a thoroughly good read.

The formatting is a bit funky in parts but only a small niggle.
