A truly gritty raw read on the terror and horrors of imprisonment in a different country with completely different laws This author knows how to write scenes that
Become Complete Pictures Incomplete pictures in mind I elt every creepy crawly slithering across the loor and up the characters limbs I cringed at the terrible living and health conditions The characters were wrote in explicit detail and I could relate to them all I elt the despair and utter The English Spy (Gabriel Allon, fatigue in Michael as heought to survive in such conditions Michael is a honorable man and I commend him on his crusade to persevere
the injustice of wrongful misdeeds I will continue on to see ifinjustice of wrongful misdeeds I will continue on to see if heroes will save the day and bring the downfall to the political corruption in this action packed storyThank You Simon Palmer I am always somewhat reluctant to review the To See Paris and Die first part of an intended series of books Just as the story is incomplete so must the review be incomplete and provisional It is difficult to comment on the merits of a plot which is unfinished This is the case here Lost Innocence is theirst part of an adventure thriller set in Bangkok Thailand Michael is a young budding artist who travels to Thailand to sketch the working girls of Bangkok before commencing studies at an art school in London Before long he Out of China finds himself in trouble He is arrested on trumped up chargesor having raped and beaten an underage girl and thrown into the notorious Bangkok Hilton He is given the option to pay a substantial Mary Tudor fine and be released or remain in prison toight the charges He decides on principle to As Aventuras de Hornblower (Saga Hornblower fight the charges While in prison he befriends a convicted drug smuggler John who shows him the ropesMichael s arrest precipitates a rescue missionirst by his ather Stan and then by his grandfather Nigel a prominent and wealthy lawyer Finally a private detective Harvey Goulding is hired to help unravel the mess Along with the intrigue and machinations as the drama unfolds the author sketches the complex and not entirely harmonious relationships between the three generations of menPalmer does an excellent job of taking the reader inside the Thai prison and legal system He also provides a convincing account of the Bangkok sex industry The story is interesting although I was never uite convinced by Michael s determination to ight the charges rather than pay the Barcelona fine given the horrific conditions to which he is subjected Neither his motivation a rather vague sense of principle nor his strength of character seemed to warrant this The generational interactions are potentially interesting but we are not given sufficient back story to understand the strained relationships particularly between theather and grandfather Neither of these men was particularly likeable Their wives left behind in England play only a minor role and again we are not given enough background to understand these relationships There are moments when the story morphs perhaps not surprisingly given the setting into a kind of soft porn which is well written if a little predictableThe author makes the unwise decision to narrate Michael s part of the narrative in the Christmas Catastrophe first person and the restrom various third person points of view The choice is strange because after the early chapters Michael plays very little part in the story Locked up in prison the capacity of this character to move the story along is very limited It is true that Michael s personal account of his arrest and his time in prison is very vivid but I think this could have been achieved just as effectively with an intimate third person narrative The introduction of the private detective into the story provides a lift but comes rather late in the narrative His Thai Collected Poems female assistant Bo is probably one of the most interesting characters and certainly the onlyemale character to be given than a bit roleThere are times when the grammar and particularly the punctuation are rather poor here And there is a moment that made me cringe when we are presented with a dreadful caricatured German accentThis is not a bad start to the series I think it would have been reasonable in this irst volume to expect back story particularly concerning the ather and grandfather which would have leant credibility to the conflicts between them It will be interesting to see where the author takes this in A Song for Issy Bradley future I give it three and a half stars rounding it down to three where necessary. Michael an artist charged with a crime he claims he didn’t commit and John a self confessed heroin smuggler are brought together in the primitive and over crowded prison infamously known as the BANGKOK HILTON Michaelights The First Family for hisreedom while John resigned to his ate wants only to regain his dignity Michael's. .
