The body an American acquaintance of Calvino's is fished out of the lake in Lumpini Park. Around his neck is a string of wooden amulets, the kind upcountry Thais wear to protect themselves from evil spirits. Only, rather than saving the man, these have killed him.

Reviews

"Calvino is at once in the finest tradition of the lone private detective and a complete original." --Matt Benyon Rees, author of "The Samaritan's Secret""Calvino is a worthy successor to Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe and Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer." --"The Nation" (Bangkok)"The top foreign author focusing on the Land of Smiles, Christopher G. Moore clearly has a firsthand understanding of the expat milieu. . . . Moore is perspicacious." --"Bangkok Post""Vincent Calvino [is] Bangkok's most newsworthy private eye. ... ["Asia Hand" is] dankly atmospheric." --"Kirkus Reviews""Underneath Bangkok society is a deeply encrusted demiworld of hope, despair, corruption, and courage that Moore, an American-born writer who has lived there for almost twenty years, paints with maestrolike Dickensian strokes." --Tom Plate, "The Seattle Times""Moore's flashy style successfully captures the dizzying contradictions of this vertiginous landscape."--Marilyn Stasio, "The New York Times Book Review"
