Behind the Night Bazaar

Thirty-something Australian Jayne Keeney works as a PI in Bangkok. Shaken by a serious incident, she heads north to visit her close friend Didier in Chiang Mai, though there's no relief for her there.

Murder is in the air and the police, led by Lieutenant Colonel Ratratarn, have no interest in justice. But Jayne does.

With some help from Arthur Conan Doyle, she digs deep - past the tacky glamour of the city's clubs and bars, arrogant expats, corrupt officials, and a steamy affair - to find out just what happened behind the Night Bazaar.

Angela Savage has brought the streets of Thailand vividly to life. In Jayne Keeney she has created a gutsy heroine. This is an unforgettable debut novel and the start of an exciting new series.

Angela Savage is a Melbourne-based crime writer, who has lived and travelled extensively in Asia. Her first novel, Behind the Night Bazaar won the 2004 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for an unpublished manuscript. She is a winner of the Scarlett Stiletto Award and has twice been shortlisted for Ned Kelly awards.

'Taut, edgy and vividly realised, Night Bazaardelivers the ironies and moral complexities of the best crime thrillers.' Garry Disher

'Coolly elegant with a lovely sense of place...a lonely social crusader in the best hard-boiled tradition.' Weekend Australian
