It’s a real entertaining read with a cast of unusual and interesting characters there are never taken too far into farce. It’s a great slice of modern Thailand, a country where tradition meets technology in every day life. There’s Jimm’s brother who is now her sister,embroiled in a number of internet scams and dubious websites and her body builder brother who is eternally single. Her mother who lovse the stray dogs of the neighbourhood and trying to matchmake Jimm with the less than inspiring locals.
The title is taken from a George Bush quote where he got his metaphors mixed up. Each chapter starts with a quote from the ex-president which seems odd at first but it is explained.
Killed at the Whim of a Hat is currently a standalone novel but I believe a series is planned. It’s currently available to buy in paperback in the UK. Many thanks to Quercus for sending me a copy to review.
