Bargain book (Kindle $1.24) - The Risk of Infidelity Index [Crime/Legal Thriller]
The Risk of Infidelity Index, some sort of crime/legal thriller in the "Vincent Calvino Crime Novel" series by Christopher G. Moore (not to be confused with the guy who writes practical demonkeeping books) is a mere $1.24 + applicable taxes in the Kindle store for Canadians, US persons, and possibly others.
Manufacturer's suggested digital price is $11.00, bargain-priced paperback is $5.39, others Kindled in the same series seem to go for $5.95 and the book is described as promising but flawed by the Publisher's Weekly review but seems fairly well received by the Amazon readers. Bio on the Amazon Author page says "award-winning" and "translated into a dozen languages", but they write those things themselves and really, could put up anything.
Anyway, the author is Canadian, which is why I'm posting this. Also, because it's cheap.
Major political demonstrations are rocking Bangkok. Chaos and fear sweep through the Thai and expatriate communities. Calvino steps into the political firestorm as he investigates a drug piracy operation. The piracy is traced to a powerful business interest protected by important political connections. A nineteen-year-old Thai woman and a middle-age lawyer end up dead on the same evening. Both are connected to Calvino's investigation. The dead lawyer's law firm denies any knowledge of the case. Calvino is left in the cold. Approached by a group of expat housewives---rattled by The Risk of Infidelity Index that ranks Bangkok number one for available sexual temptations--to investigate their husbands, Calvino discovers the alliance of forces blocking his effort to disclose the secret pirate drug investigation.
