Vulture Peak

Royal Thai Police Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep returns to solve another head-spinning, stomach-turning case in John Burdett's fifth Bangkok-based novel. In this instance, a particularly gruesome triple murder launches the idiosyncratic, personal-problem-plagued cop on a chase for an international organ-trafficking ring led by a set of diabolical, drop-dead gorgeous Chinese twins known as the Vultures. Fresh, funny, and completely wild.
