Jayne followed Didier into the Night Bazaar, a concrete building that could pass for an underground carpark. As they zigzagged along aisles laden with clothing and souvenirs she wondered who created the demand for stuffed cobras wrestling with mongooses, scorpions in glass boxes and metre-long wooden penises. She paused briefly to feel the fabric of a crimson and black sarong- one hundred per cent polyester.Who said crime doesn't pay? Australian expat Jayne Keeney lives in Thailand and works as a PI in Bangkok. When she heads north to Chiang Mai to visit her good friend Didier, she soon discovers that the local police have an especially cosy relationship with money and illegal acts. But as Jayne learns of this she realises her own life is in danger. Murder, child prostitution, police graft and other stalwart crime subjects are all uncovered by Jayne in an exotic Thai setting in this thrilling series debut.
