Honestly, I think that "Last Seen in Bangkok" will be either a drastic hit or miss for most readers simply because of the fact that it's a very raw and straightforward. The author isn't afraid to think outside of the box and offer readers something different - which I personally admire and think is a big part of why I enjoyed the read. As well as this, and I might be being biased here, I live in Manchester and think that the author has captured the northener outlook/attitude very well and it translates into a clever and sometimes humouross style of narration. In summary, I recommend the read and I'll be keeping an eye out for future releases by the author.
I was going to say that the author is no Stephen Leather, but then I realised that he might well be a young Leather drawing on his early experiences of Thailand to add the convincing colour to this entertaining portrayal of life in a city where food, drink and women are all cheap commodities to be bought, and then consumed or discarded at will.
A good holiday read, especially if you like unchallenging, lively, fast paced and distinctly erotic thrillers.
There's dozens of books out there set in working class drug and football culture, and almost every one is loaded with cliches you've heard a million times before. Most authors who attempt this are either too naive to know what they're on about, or else too mired in depravity to be an intellectual and therefore a real writer. Lavin is a real writer, and he has obviously been up to his waist in the stimulant and sex industry both in the UK and the Far East. His constant mastery of word play reminds you why cliches actually emerge in the first place, and the plot twists always seem to catch you unawares. The major miracle for me was how, after a marathon football casual, drug-traveller-rave prostitute extravaganza, I still felt a physical catch in my throat when the story caught up with the protagonist in the end. These are real people with real feelings, but are caught up in life's savage dynamic. Buy this and prepare to be moved, in several directions, a very long way. Excellent.
