The visible world by Mark Slouka( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a sense, children of immigrant parents always have to fictionalize their parents' stories, to construct them from shreds of knowledge and distant recollection. Thus this novel explores a problem familiar to us all, but perhaps especially acute for children of transplanted parents: How do you come to understand a history that has shaped you, but that you have not experienced? The novel evokes the wistful atmosphere of an immigrant community, where bits of Czech fairy tales overlap stories of the famous attempt to assassinate the Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich
Bangkok tattoo by John Burdett( Recording )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
