    Monsoon Rising is set in Southeast Asia starting in Thailand. The author possesses excellent knowledge of the area adding credibility to the story.

    Find all my book reviews, plus author interviews, guest posts and book extracts, on my blog: whatcathyreadnext.wordpress/This is a well-constructed thriller which features some exotic locations.

The author, sans editor evidently, must have a distaste or distrust of commas. None existed between dependent clauses, none existed after quotes followed by dialogue attribution. The lack of editing did no [...]

    Although I liked the descriptions of all the interesting places the nomad and Billy found themselves (especially Borneo, but also Thailand and Malaysia), I wasn't a huge fan of the graphic nature of the book. I guess it all went towards showing how bad a guy the nomad really was, and he was pretty creative, but it was a bit too much for me, and more than I was expecting. I guess maybe "sadistic serial killer" should have tipped me off. I also was distracted by the typos and lack of commas in som [...]
