'Two-timing bargirls, suspicious spouses, and lesbian lovers'—it was all in a day's work for Bangkok Private Eye Warren Olson.” Fluent in Thai and Khmer, Olson walked the mean streets of Bangkok and was able to go where other Private Eyes feared to tread. The stories are based on Olson's case files, fictionalized (to protect the innocent, and the guilty) by bestselling author Stephen Leather.

I wrote a follow up book THAI PRIVATE EYE that is obviously not as colourful as this version, which was ghost written by excellent
author Stephen Leather, but which does deal more with the factual and logistical side of the investigations.
A novel BANGKOK BLACKMAIL - I recently completed is based on the blackmail case -
Trust readers find these books not only entertaining, but also a source of information about just how many things work in 'The land of Smiles'
