We return to District 8--the underbelly of Bangkok's underworld--where a dramatically mutilated dead body is found. It's bad: he was CIA. It gets worse: the murderer appears to be Chanya--a tough, sweet working girl who's the highest earner at The Old Man's Club, jointly owned by Sonchai's mother and his boss, Police Colonel Vikorn. Alerted by Sonchai, Vikorn quickly concocts a cover-up that involves Al Qaeda and Thailand's porous southern border where, since 9/11, the CIA has been an obviously covert presence. But the truth will be harder to come by, and it will require Sonchai to find an ever-more-delicate balance between his ambition and his Buddhism, while running the gamut of Bangkok's drug dealers, prostitutes, bad cops, worse military, and the pitfalls of his own melting heart (Chanya!)--most of which he can handle. But even Sonchai is not prepared for what he discovers at the end of his investigation

Left with no easy way out and plenty of moral conflict, Sonchai will have to decide between saving his soul and saving his career

In District 8, the underbelly of Bangkok's crime world, a mutilated body is found in a hotel bedroom. It looks bad: the corpse is CIA. And it gets worse for Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep when the murderer appears to be the most successful 'working girl' at The Old Man's Club, a brothel owned jointly by Sonchai's mother and his boss, Police Colonel Vikorn. Alerted by Sonchai, Vikorn quickly concocts a cover-up that involves an Al Qaeda terrorist cell - a ploy he believes will prove irresistible to the American spy agency. The bizarre truth that is eventually uncovered, with a little help from the dead, may be too challenging even for the wily colonel, as Sonchai is forced to run the gamut of Bangkok's drug dealers, prostitutes, bad cops, corrupt military generals, and the pitfalls of his own melting heart

When a US Marine is killed in Bangkok, the task of finding the murderer falls to Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep, seemingly the only member of the Royal Thai Police Force whose idea of justice excludes the habitual bribe taking practised by his fellow officers. This assignment is especially important to the devout detective because during the investigation of the murder scene, the snakes that bit the marine also kill Sonchai's police partner, best friend and Buddhist soul mate Pichai. Sonchai's pursuit of revenge will team him with a frustrated FBI agent and leave them at the mercy of drug fuelled motorcycle taxi drivers as they hurtle through neon lit Bangkok
