Investigating murder child prostitution and corruption all in a day's work for kickass PI Jayne Keeney The first in a series of funny gripping crime novels set in Thailand Behind the Night Baz. Thoroughly enjoyable enlightening tense and evocativeIt’s 1996 and Jayne Keeney has fled her native Australia to live in Bangkok where she works as a PI It proves a handy skill when her dearest friend is accused of murdering his lover and then shot while ‘evading’ police Jayne’s investigation puts herself and those who help her in danger The deeper she gets the she has to rely on her wits and ‘Farang’ ways to stay alive Behind the Night Bazaar reveals Thai culture and the sex trade in an unflinching but sympathetic light these are people who need to exploit the little they have to stay alive The foreign tourists who use them don’t get such sympathy——certainly not from this reader Jayne is liberal minded generous and opinionated and her love for her adopted country and its people particularly those shunned by society shines While Jayne Keeney carries the bulk of the narration Savage uses multiple viewpoints to show not just the conflict between the characters but the competing goals behind them For me this somewhat diminished the possible suspense yet the mystery behind the murders and the insight into another culture is so riveting it didn’t matter The socio political landscape shapes the story and the necessary explanations could have overwhelmed the mystery They don’t Culture politics and backstory are handled well and add dimension to the narrative and to Jayne’s character That complexity and the conflicting but eually defended goals of all major characters are one of this novel’s strengths Rich in complexity and utterly entertaining Behind the Night Bazaar is highly recommended for all those crime lovers looking for stories with strong heroines and a vivid sense of place
