Thailand 1996. The Year of The Rat. Pete, a young travel writer, wanders into a Bangkok go-go bar and meets the love of his life. Joy is the girl of his dreams, young, stunningly pretty, and one of the Zombie Bar's top-earning pole dancers. What follows is a roller-coaster ride of sex, drugs, and deception, as Pete discovers that his very own private dancer is not all that she claims to be. And that far from being the girl of his dreams, Joy is his own personal nightmare.

I found the book very informative and the voice performances were impressive. I think it would help new visitors to Thailand and give them a much needed grounding into the psyche of the characters their likely to run into when visiting and could help prevent a few pitfalls.

This book was made for the many decent guys who come to Thailand for whatever reason and find themselves ensnared in a nightmare. This book will save some of you guys a fortune - and it's going to stop you from falling into the traps that have caught up with so many guys before you. You decent guys don't deserve derision - you deserve to know what's going on around you. You need to know what to look out for and when to extricate yourself from a situation.

I had to listen to this book in one go, I found it very compelling. The author will graciously give his time to you in answering questions too which I found surprising and was very grateful for. Above and beyond really.
