Ravens by George Dawes Green
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Guesthouse / Cafe, #Pattaya.
 
The Boat-wrights just won 318 million dollars in the Georgia State lottery.
It's going to be the worst day of their lives.
 
When Shaw McBride and Romeo Zderko pull up at a convenience store off I-95 in Georgia, their only thought is to fix a leaky tire and be on their way again to Florida away from their dull Ohio tech-support jobs.
But this happens to be the store from which a 318,000,000 million dollar Jackpot ticket has just been sold and when a pretty clerk accidentally reveals to Shaw the identity of the winning family, he hatches a ferociously audacious scheme: He and Romeo will squeeze the family for half their prize.

Perfidia (Second L.A. Quartet #1) by James Ellroy
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Guesthouse / Cafe, #Pattaya.
 
The Japanese have bombed Pearl Harbor.
The United States teeters on the edge of war.
The roundup of allegedly treasonous Japanese Americans is about to begin.
And in L.A., a Japanese family is found dead.
Murder or ritual suicide?
The investigation will draw four people into a totally Ellroy-ian tangle: a brilliant Japanese American forensic chemist; an unjustifiably adventurous young woman; one police officer based in fact (William H. "whiskey Bill" Parker, later to become the groundbreaking chief of the LAPD), the other the product of Ellroy's inimitable imagination (Dudley Smith, arch villain of The Big Nowhere, L.A. Confidential, White Jazz).

Out on the Rim by Ross Thomas,
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange #Pattaya #Thailand.
 
Would you be wary if someone gave you the assignment of delivering five million dollars to a Philippine terrorist, never mind from whom or why?
Booth Stallings, a terrorism expert just fired from his job at a bashful organization that never admitted its mount in the Washington merry-go-round, is wary.
So wary that he cuts in con man "Otherguy" Overby, who in turn involves Artie Wu, pretender to the throne of China, and his partner, Quincy Durant.

Kingdom of Make-believe: A Novel of Thailand
by Dean Barrett
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange #Pattaya #Thailand.
 
A New York publisher who once served in Thailand during the Vietnam War receives a plea for help from his late brother's Thai widow.
When he returns to #Thailand after 20 years he finds that the nostalgic portrait he carried of Thailand Past bears little resemblance to reality, and he begins to uncover deception, danger and death.
Scenes in the novel range from Manhattan's Greenwich Village to a typhoon-ravaged Hong Kong to Thailand's notorious nightlife and warlord betrayals inside the Golden Triangle.
A gripping mystery and exotic thriller, it is also the story of a man coming to terms with reality and himself.

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
 
Traded back in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange #Pattaya #Thailand.
 
Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it.
For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.
Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded.
Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you? 


Mitch Albom had that second chance.

He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life.

Knowing he was dying of ALS - or motor neurone disease - Mitch visited Morrie in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final 'class': lessons in how to live.

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts.
 
Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Book exchange * Guesthouse * Cafe, #Pattaya, #Thailand
 
"It took me a long time and most of the world to learn what I know about love and fate and the choices we make, but the heart of it came to me in an instant, while I was chained to a wall and being tortured."
 
So begins this epic, mesmerizing first novel set in the underworld of contemporary Bombay.
Shantaram is narrated by Lin, an escaped convict with a false passport who flees maximum security prison in Australia for the teeming streets of a city where he can disappear.
 
Accompanied by his guide and faithful friend, Prabaker, the two enter Bombay's hidden society of beggars and gangsters, prostitutes and holy men, soldiers and actors, and Indians and exiles from other countries, who seek in this remarkable place what they cannot find elsewhere.

Mafia Hits: 100 Murders that changed the Mob
by M.A. Frasca.
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange - Cafe *-* Guesthouse #Pattaya #Thailand..
 
Since the late 19th century, the Mafia has been a presence in North America using intimidation and worse to exert its control over organized crime in the major cities and beyond, anything from loansharking to bootlegging during Prohibition to extortion, kidnapping and racketeering.
For the Mob, as they are also known, crime was big business. Feuds between Mafia families and their associates led to Lucky Luciano, the preeminent Mob boss, creating the Commission, which to this day RULES over Mob activity and disputes.

Sami Macbeth is not a master criminal.
He's not even a minor one.

He's not a safe-cracker.
He's not an expert in explosives.
 
Sami plays guitar and wants to be a rock god but keeps getting side tracked by unforeseen circumstances.
Fifty-four hours ago Sami was released from prison, thirty six hours ago he slept with the woman of his dreams at the Savoy.
An hour ago his train blew up.
